I heard a roomer that Mazamitla is not safe these days due to drug activity. Has anyone heard the same or anything to the contrary?

While I have always heard that Mazamitla was a "cartel playground" I have never heard that it was not safe. I plan on going there next week so I'll let you know.

If not into "drug activity" and not partying stupid .... it's a refreshing town in the pines

"drug activity" does not mean mid-day roadblocks looking to abduct you for ransom

Me and my moto buddies ride up there a lot as well. Going this weekend.

It is a great "ride to eat" moto excursion.

We went to Mazamitla yesterday. It was business as usual. The place was packed and we had a hard time finding a parking space anywhere near the plaza. It was unusually busy for a Monday. We even saw a few other forum members there.

Expanding on the question, is it a good option to go there for an overnight trip? Just want to drive over and look around without feeling rushed, so we're considering staying one night near Centro. Thoughts appreciated.

You should have no problem getting a hotel room if you go during the week, but not this week of course. They are much more likely to be booked up on the weekends.

That's what we do.
Anyone going to Mazamitla should check out the Ruta Eco- Turistico Sierra del Tigre,it's a very nice scenic drive.
We usually go into town in the morning and get a couple of orders of the excellent birria to go and re-heat them at a mirador/look out point on the Sierra del Tigre.

There's a very nice casa de campo outside of Mazamitla that features a scale model of a Cessna over the entrance,just like the one Pablo Escobar had at one of his ranches in Colombia,it's not hard to figure out where the money for that property came from...
