San Antonio Tlayacapan Fiesta

San Antonio Fiesta

Beautiful San Antonio Tlayacapan!

This peaceful town is located between Chapala and Ajijic, it keeps the culture and traditions of the town. You can find it as the ideal place to live and retire.

Saint Anthony is the patron saint of the village, and once a year rockets blast into the air before dawn, signaling all those for miles around that this is San Antonio’s day to celebrate! From June 5-13 bands blare, church bells ring and the town is shaken wide-awake.

Then come the food, parades, music and dances. For weeks, the castillo in the plaza has been in the making. The bamboo framework is set with fireworks, and at each corner are Catherine wheels and bunches of squibs. Some years the structure is five stories high!
