    Is it possible to visit this village? Where is it located? I make lampwork glass in Canada and would love to visit them. This will be our 8th time to the yucatan, we travel around by car to various areas. Thank you for any info you can offer!

    Hi Linda,

    Thank you for your interest in our post. This town is actually in Puebla, Mexico. The name of the village is Chignahuapan. Here is an article about the town. http://www.puebla-mexico.com/chignahuapan/

    Another great little “Christmas” town is Tlalpujahua in Michoacan, Mexico. Here is a video about that place. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FxpySrwlbts

    Have a very Merry Chrsitmas!
