About 30 miles northeast of Mazatlan
lies the picturesque colonial pueblito of El Quelite.
The beautiful streets of this village are invitingly
strollable and litter-free, mostly cobbled and lined
with subtropical trees, shrubs, and colorful flowers
spilling onto the sidewalks.
Awash in color, the houses are
painted bright hues of yellow, green, red, the complete
rainbow. This town is so lovely that it inspired
Francisco Terriquez to write
the famous Mexican folk song, Que Bonito es El
Quelite (How Beautiful is El Quelite), which
is well known throughout Latin America, and can
be heard playing regularly throughout the town,
a demonstration of how proud the 2,000 people who
call this pueblito home are of their village.
