This Pueblo Mágico is also known as the Mexican Switzerland. It is surrounded by a pine forest in the Sierra del Tigre Mountains. Here the typical concrete, flat roof construction style gives way to wooden chalets nestled along mountain ridges,as well as large get-away homes for the wealthy in Guadalajara. The San Cristobal Parish dominates the central square. Around it are dozens and dozens of small shops offering a wide variety of goods. There are also many wonderful restaurants. We had a late lunch and desert at Casa Magna. Like many restaurants in small towns around Mexico, it was once a large private villa. The open central square becomes the eating area.
