One of the gems in San Jose Iturbide is this beautiful Catholic church which was built in the 1800's. It is actually a landmark in Mexico and one of the most important religious buildings in the country.  It is gorgeous inside and out. Take some time to look around the inside and outside and soak in the culture. It is something you don't want to miss!


Look no further if you love the outdoors! With hiking trails, paragliding, zip lining, rapeling and more you are sure to stay busy as you explore through the hills of San Jose Iturbide. 

It's always nice to get out of the city for a little bit and enjoy the fresh air. Hey, you could even pack a picnic of tacos! That sounds even better now...


San Jose Iturbide is not a very touristy or crowded city and because of that you'll find awesome prices on real, authentic Mexican food. You can never go wrong with that! Think tacos, empanadas, carne adobada (red chili and pork stew) and enchiladas. It's heaven! Look out for the smaller hole in the wall restaurants that often are the best ones around!
