Guasave_Mexico

Welcome to Guasave.

Here in the north of Mexico, the reality of life is contrasted. The city of Guasave, a small town of roughly 70’000 habitants in the Sinaloa region, is far from all major tourists destinations of Mexico. With rural and ancestral traditions, Guasave is on the verge of great changes, those of modernity and globalisation driven by the American giant. In this agricultural area where «Guasavos» (the inhabitants of Guasave) make a living from the culture of corn and other cereal resources, this transformation can already be felt in everyday life, such as the architecture, the cuisine and general habits of consumption.

  The Beautiful Medium

Discovering this village and the locals shows another side of Central America: being here one can feel part of an intense and strong Mexican identity, yet the global and in particular american influences cannot be overlooked.
