Tepoztlan, Mexico

The town of Tepoztlán is famous for its “Good Vibrations.” It has many spas, retreat centres, temples, alternative medicine clinics and, apparently, it has some wicked ice cream famous for the exotic flavours. Legend has it that 1200 years ago Quetzalcoatl, a serpent god with feathers, was born here. Quetzalcoatl is a Mesoamerican deity of merchants, arts, crafts and knowledge that has taken many shapes and forms throughout Mayan history.

Just over 14,000 people live here full time. It feels like the perfect quiet village to soak in some beautiful Mayan/Mexican history. I feel so disconnected from Central American traditions that the idea of writing this post felt so exciting. My boyfriend went and this was his first destination suggestion for Collecting Wonder, ever. I think that means it’s gonna be a good one!
