Mazamitla is situated 260 miles (418 kilometers) west of Mexico City, the country's capital.
Mazamitla is not the only place in Jalisco worth exploring; visitors with plenty of time can also head off and experience the special qualities of the nearby countryside, communities and cultural attractions. You may also wish to check out Chapala, 30 miles (48 kilometers) to the southeast, and Mezcala 30 miles (48 kilometers) to the south.
Approximately 55 miles (89 kilometers) to the north of Mazamitla is Guadalajara, a regional city where you go see La Luz del Mundo Temple, Templo de San Agustin and Jaime Torres Bodet Teatro. Presidencia Municipal (City Hall), Magno Centro Joyero and Corona Market are other good places to visit.
Holy places are the best doorways into a community's big beating heart. The cathedrals throughout Jalisco are certainly no exception. Take a trip to Jalisco's history museums, craft workshops and art museums. These are great places to explore, particularly when the weather is less than perfect.
De-stress like the locals in Jalisco. Go shore fishing and cycling. Why don't you spend some time with a good local guide and join a special interest tour? City walking tours are popular in this area.
And at the end of your journey, pack your traveling bag and bid Mazamitla a fond Adiós (farewell).
