WORLDWIDE KNOWN FOR THE DELICIOUS "CHONGOS ZAMORANOS"

This is a privileged area due to its cultural and natural wealth. In addition, its people have preserved their ancestral traditions, which are reflected in their crafts and gastronomy.

Zamora is one of the most important cities in Michoacán due to its commercial and agro-industrial development, as well as its solid infrastructure of services.

It is internationally known for its "Chongos zamoranos" (milk and sugar-based sweets) and its high production of strawberries, considered among the best in the world.

Not far away is Lake Chapala, which, from October to March, becomes a true sanctuary for thousands of white pelicans.
