Santa María del Oro

Calle Ramón Corona 70, Centro, 63830 Santa María del Oro, Nay., Mexico

Do as the locals do and escape to the oasis-like lake of Santa María del Oro. Kick back in a hammock with a cold beer and chicharron de pescado (the delicious fried fish equivalent of pork rinds) or ceviche at any of the restaurants stilted up over the water, and watch the warm, beautiful water lap up along the grassy shores.
