Set high on a mountain, Tapijulapa presents astonishing scenery. The main attraction of this beautiful Magic Town is its urban design and street layout that is forced to play with the countours and uneven terrain of the exuberant natural surroundings. The town is a labyrinth of white walls, red doors and window frames, and roofs made of clay tiles, framed overall by the lush Tabascan jungle surroundings, whose real owners, the Nahual indigenous people, have always been the true custodians of the Magic Town of Tapijulapa.
