To the south of Tehuacán, in the middle of the Tehuacán-Cuicatlán Biosphere Reserve, is Zapotitlán Salinas. In this desert territory with its unique beauty, dominated by cacti, there are some of the Salt marshes that the ancient inhabitants already exploited. In one of the cellars, the Buried Chapel was built. The reserve can be visited under the guidance of the local communities, who manage the Helia Bravo Hollis Community Botanical Garden, with paths between cacti and tourist services.

 

In the small town of San Juan Raya, you can also visit the Paleontological Community Museum and Turritelas Ecotourism Park, with activities such as exploration in search of fossils and accommodation services. In the town of Zapotitlán Salinas the parish of San Martín, one of the oldest in the region, the Temple of the Magi and the Temple of San Francisco are a must-see. In the area crafts made from burnished clay are produced.
