Little is known about the cultural policy in semi-urban and rural spaces in Mexico. The aim of this article is to typify the current cultural policy of the Direccion de Cultura and the Centro Universitario de los Valles, in Ameca, Jalisco, Mexico, which can serve to make decisions or generate broader, deeper and more constant research. It uses the classification proposed by Coelho (2009) to locate the types, after describing the cultural action, and distinguishing content alluding to culture and cultural politics. It concludes that cultural politics in Ameca sustains conservative and syncretic discourses, and performs discretionary and incoherent cultural actions. So, in general, can be classified into various types such supply-demand logic, patrimonialist and promotion of creation, nationalism, culture outside the cultural market, directing and cultural democratization, and of intervention and coordination. These characteristics can generate little cultural impact, inefficiency and operational inefficiency, and problems such as acculturation and discrimination, despite immediate results, accumulated experience and available resources.
