Western Popoloca is an indigenous language of Puebla state, Mexico. There are two principal varieties, sometimes counted as distinct languages,

  • Santa Inés Ahuatempan Popoloca (a.k.a. Ahuatempan, Santa Inés)
  • San Felipe Otlaltepec Popoloca (a.k.a. Otlaltepec, San Felipe)

which are about 75% mutually intelligible. Approximately half of ethnic Popoloca of these towns speak the language.
