Welcome to Álamos

Álamos’ charms have proven irresistible to many US retirees and creative types who, since the '50s, have snapped up decaying colonial buildings to renovate into second homes and hotels. These well-heeled expats comprise a small but influential segment of Álamos’ population, and their establishments dominate the colonial center of town.

More bizarrely, Álamos and vicinity is where most of the world’s jumping beans – beans that ‘jump’ due to the presence of a larva inside – originate. Look for them sold around town.
