It's witching season in Catemaco, Mexico. Bring your credit cards.

Witchcraft, Capitalism Hit Mexican Town
CATEMACO, Mexico (AP) -- The witchcraft business is thriving like never before in this town in southeastern Mexico, as Internet marketing and media-savvy shamans hitch centuries-old tradition to modern commercialism.

As the traditional March witching season beings, visitors from across the country are descending on Catemaco to find "brujos" - witches - to help them secure lovers, bring down enemies and even cement pacts with the devil.

The most famous of Mexico's witches, Pedro Gueixpal, maintains a Web site and is the most overtly commercial, donning a white satin tunic embroidered with Chinese dragons for a simulated cleansing before journalists' cameras.

His annual predictions for next year's events are a fixture in the regional press.

His spanish only website:

Thanks for the link, there's no sublinks within the web page though

I liked his marketing statement

"Nos Respalda la Experiencia de nuestros Antepasados"

which means

"We are backed by the experience of our Ancestors"

Did you click the "regresar" button? I don't speak spanish, so I don't know the options, but you can e-mail him:

"regresar" just took me back to an index . (His is the only site though)
I was just curious if he went into details.
Brujos/Shamans etc have always interested me.
Remember Carlos Castaņeda and his trippy little books about Don Juan?
