Family of Mr. José Trino Ureña and his wife Adelania Pizarro, who have 6 adult children and many grandchildren around. They were some of the pioneers in the community, working in agriculture and livestock for several decades, which has endowed them with great experience, which is why the rural tourism commission of the ADIRQ proposes to offer the tour to visitors, taking advantage of the corral and docile cows that have to transmit the peasant culture. In addition, they also have other domestic animals such as pigs and chickens and a tepezcuintles zoo farm; and they work in the oil palm production. That is how they started with the traditional dairy tour they named Preserving Footprints as an allusion to remember the traditions marked in the generations of this peasant family, who want to improve the facilities little by little and provide a warm service to visitors.
