Los Yugos Off The Beaten Path
This small Mexican village is really in the middle of nowhere.
To get there you first get to Guadalajara, the capitol of Jalisco. Then you get to the bus station and take a bus to the region of Los Altos. In fact, take a bus to the bus station of Tepatitlan. and from there take a bus to the town of Cañadas de Obregon, or just Cañadas. From Cañadas ask around to see if anyone is going to Los Yugos...for best luck go to the city hall of the town and ask if anyone from Los Yugos is in town.....or for even better luck go to "Don Pablo's" little corner store...and ask if anyone from Los Yugos has been there...if no one can take you, you can ask for the road that goes to Los Yugos and then get on the side of that road and hitchhike...but make sure that those people are going to Los Yugos. If anyone is going to El Zapote, La Peña, La Villita or La Presa then take the ride since Los Yugos is on the way to those towns. However, the best way to get there is by taxi...I dont know how much it costs, but if you come from Europe or the states it won't be alot of money since the peso is relatively cheap... I'd say that anything below 100 pesos (9 dollars) (7 euros) is good.
Once there go to "La tienda de abajo" or "La tienda del Chumas" and ask if anyone in the village has lodging or a room to rent...to eat, you can buy something in the local grocery stores... people in "La tienda del Chumas" can make you a sandwhich.
Once you get lodging, you can ask the people of the rancho (i.e. village) what there is to do around there...
try to break into the Old Hacienda by jumping over the wire gate...or go walking to the river...(30-45 min. walk). The Town Plaza is nice but nothing spectacular...if you belive in god you can go into the church at the center of town and pray to god that you find whatever you are looking for, such as lodging, food etc. etc.Related to:
