Among the folk celebrations held in Las Varas are the Judas of Holy Week, the Santo Santiago Cavalcade, the Virgen de Guadalupe festival and the Mojigangas, a Carnaval celebration during which costumed people and clowns parade down the streets and then perform bullfighting tricks in the town’s charro ring.
Primarily dedicated to agriculture, the town of Las Varas Mexico is surrounded by fields of beans and tobacco as well as fruit orchards. As you approach town, the landscapes of country living will also inspire you to explore the Mataiza Lagoon, by either taking a boat ride or camping along its shore.
On your visit to this traditional community, don’t forget to stop by the Community Museum, home to an interesting collection of archeological pieces such as pots, arrowheads, ceramics, fossils and antiques that have been found in nearby areas such as the Altavista ceremonial center. And if you wish to delve into the wonders of sea and sand, you will find the beaches of Chacala just ten minutes away. Las Varas hotels and bungalows are limited and many visitors choose to stay at hotels closer to the beach, such as Chacala Beach, La Penita, and Jaltemba Bay.
