This particular town has no more room to grow due to its location in between the river and a mountain, therefore many of its population has fled to the nearby towns or cities.

Economy[edit]

The only shopping avenues are in the form of tienditas, which are house front stores. Most of the people live from farms where they grow chili, corn, tomatoes, watermelon, sweet potato, and fish from the Nazas River.
