In the heart of the Trinidad Sierra, on the road between the East Cape and Los Cabos, there are several charming villages and hamlets whose inhabitants are artisan-farmers who devote themselves to handcraft production and fruit farming.
For shopping, make a stop at Miraflores, where you will find reasonably-priced, hand-made leather items.
Every July, the town holds the annual “Pitahaya” fair which draws regional craftspeople.
Reina de la Pitahaya
The main attraction of the fair is the chance to purchase a variety of items made from this fruit.
