Its main economic activities relate to agriculture and commerce. The city is next to the Ajajalpan River, a tributary of the Necaxa and whose waters eventually flow into the Gulf of Mexico via the Tecolutla.

This and other features of the area and the surrounding area made the city the 39th Pueblo Mágico in Mexico.
