Things to do

Visit the Artisan Workshops

If Juquila is proud of anything, it is its crafts workshops–if you go to this Magical Town, you should make a point to visit the woodcarving shops. There are hand-carved figures, especially Virgins. The devout can dress their Virgin and choose among many different accessories, each with a special meaning.

The unique blouses that the Chatina women make by hand are also a point of pride. You can learn to embroider with beads the beautiful flowered designs found on the local clothing. These prized designs are worn by the dance group that participates in Guelaguetza celebrations.
