Don’t forget to enjoy the local food and delicacies, on a fresh afternoon or in the morning ask for a "cafe de olla", eat some home-made cookies and purchase some of the many local sweets, stuffed guayabas, sour guayabita, camote sweets, mango skins and more. Another option, for adults, includes different types of "rompopes", which is like an eggnog, variants include vanilla, chestnut, or the season fruits and berries, for people that enjoy something with more kick, what about a close encounter with a shot of Raicilla? Locals and tourists alike enjoy hiking, horseback riding, kayak or boat tours, rappelling, rock climbing, and fishing in the lagoons. The petrified field at El Malpais is located a mile northeast of Mascota, it is said that during a day of strong volcanic activity the whole place was covered with ashes and lava. There is a legend that states that people have found an orchard fruit in the middle of the fields, they’d eat some of the fruit, and later when they’d try to find the place again, they couldn’t. The town of Juanacatlan has a great little lake called Laguna de Juanacatlan (laguna: lagoon, lake, pond) some 8 miles northeast of Mascota, it’s surrounded by forests and hills, the lake itself is actually the crater of a dead volcano (quite interesting, no?). It’s a great place to fish, a location where you feel time stands still. The lake itself covers a total of 24 hectares and the panorama is beautiful. While you drive to the location, you’ll go through beautiful forests with a wide variety of conifers. While you are in Mascota take a stroll to the Casa de la Cultura and visit the local Archaeological Museum. Many petroglyphs have been found around Mascota, like those in archaeological sites at El Pantano, El Ocotillo, Santa Rita, El Refugio, and Mesa Colorada. Another unique visit in Mascota is the Rock Museum El Pedregal (El Museo de Piedra El Pedregal), what makes it unique is that everything inside it is made of and decorated with rocks of all sizes, color, and shapes (Calle Morelos 64).
