It was originally known as “Santa Mara de Acuitaplco,” after the patron saint of the area and the Acuitaplco mine, which is situated at the lagoon’s tail. Because there were three fine gold mines near the area, the name was changed to “Santa Maria del Oro” in 1594. It is officially a municipality in the Mexican state of Nayarit.
Now… Imagine driving down a narrow, curvy road surrounded by lush foliage, then taking a right and unexpectedly seeing a lagoon embedded in a volcanic crater appear in front of you.
There are two great stories about the source of the name… One of them is said to have been created by the tears of two young people from separate tribes who, after falling in love and being discovered, were bound facing each other so that they could be near but never touch each other. The lagoon was created as a result of their tears.
Another legend surrounding the lagoon is that it is once a volcano’s crater. The lagoon’s depth has never been calculated, but it is incredibly deep, so… maybe it connects to the Earth’s heart!

Laguna de santa maría del oro
Western Mexico is known for its diverse habitats, which allows tourists to experience a variety of natural wonders. This time, we’re leaving the coast and driving up into the mountains to visit a lagoon about three hours from Puerto Vallarta. This body of water was shrouded in mystery for a long time because its depth was uncertain. There is also a legend associated with it. It is currently one of the most popular tourist destinations in the state of Nayarit.
The Laguna de Santa Mara del Oro is located in the municipality of the same name, which refers to the patron saint of the region and the mining activity that took place during the Viceroyalty era, when our country was part of the Spanish colonies. To get to this town, take Highway 200 north and follow the signs to Compostela. The exit to Tepic is about 30 minutes after going through this town’s toll booth, and the turnoff to Santa Mara del Oro is about 15 minutes after that. The mountainous and forested landscape typical of this region can be appreciated through the car windows. The weather varies as well, giving the impression of a milder climate. As a result, it is a recommended getaway for any seasonal resident or tourist looking to get away from the beach and explore other areas.
