The Mission Route

Going through the historic El Camino Real, created by the Society of Jesus and other missionary groups that succeeded them during colonial times, is an unmatched adventure where you are able to connect with nature and visit charming towns.

Imagine yourself driving on a small road by the desert and suddenly finding a waterfall that indicates the proximity of an oasis. As you carry on, you’ll see a temple of great proportions built with volcanic rock; a church that would easily belong to a city square, placed right in the middle of the desert next to an oasis full of fruit trees. What you have imagined cannot be compared to the surprises that this mission route has in store for you.
