It´s that time of year again and the December Fiesta is on again in the quaint little town of Santa Ines. Located in the western part of the state and you can check out the location and pics on Google Earth: 19°42'46.81" N 102°32'56.30" W.
This scheduled activities are:

Dec. 26 @ 5 p.m. Children´s events and pageant.
Dec. 27 @ 9 a.m. 5k race.

@ 8:00 p.m. Serenade in the plaza.
Dec. 30 @ 12:00 p.m. Thanksgiving Mass.
@ 2:30 p.m. Picnic in the pine forest overlooking the town (La Cruz).

For accomodations there is a hotel in neigboring Tocumbo which is 2 km away.
You can also sightsee around Santa Ines and the foothills and even buy some local Mezcal, Cotija cheese and preserves.
Many in town speak English so that won´t be a problem and the crime rate is very low.
Another option is to visit Tocumbo and try their famous ice cream selection.

Neither Google Earth nor Google Maps seem to understand that location.

Where is Sta Inés near?
