A Mexican city on the water
The wonderful town is located on the Pacific coast of Mexico with a population of about 800 people. No less interesting is its name - Mexcaltitán de Uribe (Mexcaltitan) translated from the Nahuatl language means "island, full of mescal" (a kind of strong alcoholic beverage).
The city is located on the marshland, among numerous channels formed by the mangrove forest.
Some experts believe that Mexcaltitán may actually be the legendary city of Aztlán, the ancestral homeland of the Aztecs.
Currently, the entire population of the city is occupied by shrimp.
In the rainy season, almost all the streets flooded water and residents are forced to move to live on the boat.
