FOLK MUSIC FESTIVAL AMECAMECA Its easy to reach if you come from the federal district. By metro in the station Candelaria there are buses that take you straight to Amecameca. The trip takes about two to three hours.

Another might be, take a combi to Chalco at Tenango get down and the center of that place, take an Amecameca bus. A good way to travel is by bus as it is faster and more comfortable. Traffic gets heavy when it comes to Zaragoza (the horse) it is the union of several paths. You can get good food and entertainment from the region. There are a number of attractions such as volcanoes, museums, parks and so on. There are several hotels in this place where to stay.


Many people travel by bus to get to the metro, they usually use for metro to arrive to their work. Traffic is a big problem because it is heavy. Sometimes the situation is changing it is getting better but I travel by bus. To arrive to my house, from Monday to Friday.
