We find Narigua House in “El Jonuco” a beautiful place where we enjoy from 360o of spectacular views. This mountain-enclosed neighbourhood reminds us of numerous Mexican towns where tall mountains limit the valley where its inhabitants settle. Here, its residents live alongside with the typical vegetation and wildlife found in northern México.
