Rafting the Rio Lerma rapids is a popular attraction for those looking to get an adrenaline rush.
The tale of princess Tara-Handa is a recount of the town’s origin, it is so ingrained in the local culture to the point where local men continue to celebrate the princess today with flower offerings called estrellas, Spanish for stars.
The town is also prominent for the hand-made ceramic items created by local artisans, make sure to check them out and gift yourself a memento of your visit to Tarandacuao.
