MAZATLAN, MEXICO (PRWEB) October 21, 2015
There is so much to do in and around Mazatlán. Premier Resort Vacations knows that many visitors want to see the surrounding cities and other beautiful parts of this wonderful region. Located about 2 ½ hours from Mazatlán, Cosala is a picturesque town surrounded by natural attractions. Situated about 1,200 feet up the Sierra Madre Mountains, the view is phenomenal and one of the best day trips available from Mazatlán. Awarded the Pubelo Magico award from the Mexican Tourism Secretary in 2005, Cosala is among the “Magical Villages” of Mexico. It has symbolism, legends, history, important events, and a peaceful day-to-day life. Some of the favorite places to visit while enjoying a day in Cosala are:
Plaza de Armas – Like many downtown areas, Plaza de Armas is the heart of it all. The gazebo was built in the 1800s and often has music coming from it, courtesy of a live band. Vendors line the streets hoping to sell a variety of wares to tourists, including juices, local food, and homemade candy. Relax in a 19th century horse drawn carriage and take in the sights of the Plaza on a tour.
Hernandez Arragon House – Central Cosala is postcolonial in its architecture and design. Cobblestone streets are lined by beautiful buildings, and locals believe some of the homes play host to ghosts. On Hidalgo Street, the Hernandez Aargon House is one of these. Visitors and locals often see a woman dressed in white near the house late at night. With the adobe walls and courtyards shaded with trees, the homes are kept at a comfortable temperature despite the heat.
Santa Ursula Temple - This church was built in the 18th century, though the foundation dates back to the early 1600s. With the town’s patron saint as its namesake, the church has many tunnels connecting it to the homes where the important residents of the time lived. Meticulously maintained, the church still serves as the heart of the Catholic faith and is a must for any day trip to Cosala.
Premier Resort Vacations also notes that there are other must-see attractions, which include the Museum of Mining and History, unique in showing the history of the mining industry in the region through weapons, books, documents, and mineral samples. Enjoy a picnic lunch alongside the waterfalls and natural pool at Caudal del Arroyo del Sabinal. Or view the stalactites and stalagmites in the great cave of Gruta Mexico. There is so much to see in Pueblo Magico, visitors may need several day trips to experience it all.
