La Mexicana is a wonderful, traditional restaurant in Troncones. They often have live music and there's a little market set up but they're not pushy at all. Make sure if you're there on a Thursday you get the Pozole (soup).

We visited your restaurant 2 years ago and are returning the week of April 12-19, 2017. There are 13 of us and was wondering what is going that week for activities. The posts mention live music, cooking classes and Spanish lessons. Do you have more information about these events? Thank you, Jen
