MEXICO

Mexico is located 4.5 kilometers from the capital City of San Fernando. It has a total land area of 117.41 square kilometers. Sweet chico fruits abound in this town.

Legend & History

The pre-Spanish Period name of the town was 'Masiku,' meaning abundance of water (the town had vast irrigated farmlands); other scholars claim it got its name from 'chico' fruits, or from the description 'makasiku,' meaning river elbowing or town elbowing neighboring towns. Least likely is that the town was named after Mexico in Central America, although the Spaniards resorted to spelling the town's name that way (x and s in latin are phonetically the same). On December 8, 1800, the demarcation between Mexico and San Fernando towns was set.
