Magical Cataviña

What is known is that Cataviña is the point where the north and south portions of Highway 1 — the Transpeninsular Highway –finally met during its epic construction back in 1973. However, this special place is also the home to numerous cave paintings, giant cacti that look as though they were plucked from Dr. Seuss’ imagination, boulders the size of SUV’s, prehistoric blue palm trees, and beautiful and rare breeds of mixed desert vegetation. Cataviña has also inspired countless beautiful, panoramic photos and vistas, and is thus an incredibly popular destination for any nature-loving tourist.

The residents of Cataviña make their living, generally, from tourism. While camping is a popular choice for many tourists visiting Cataviña, the town also boasts the well-known hotel, the Hotel Mision Santa Maria, which has a swimming pool, an excellent restaurant serving traditional Mexican fare, and is definitely the most famous (and the nicest) place to stay in Cataviña.
