Mexcaltitán is a small village laid out like a wheel. The town occupies an island in the middle of a saltwater lagoon. Streets are underwater during the rainy season, prompting the use of boats that ferry people around.
If you want to visit, you’ll need to take a wooden boat (lancha) from La Batanga, a small wharf outside the town of Santiago Ixcuintla, 60 kilometers (37 miles) northwest of Tepic.
