Mexcaltitán is said to have been where the Aztecs originated. The small is surrounded by water, and its streets flood at extreme high tide. The town's population is 300 and there is one hotel on the island. Today the adobe buildings are painted in bright colors. A cultural museum displays the history of the Aztec culture artifacts. Mexcaltitan is a 1.5-hour drive and 10 minute boat ride to the island village. Visit Santiago on your return trip to San Blas.
