It serves as the municipal seat for the surrounding municipality of the same name. Sahuayo was an important center for the Cristero War or "La Cristiada" and the city always has been an active center of commerce for the Chapala lake, specially crafts, sandals (huaraches), hats (sombreros), made by Sahuayenses. Blessed José Luis Sánchez del Río (28 March 1913 – 10 February 1928) was a Mexican Cristero who was put to death by government officials because he refused to renounce his Catholic faith. His death was seen as a largely political venture on the part of government officials in their attempt to stamp out dissent and crush religious freedom in the area. He was declared to be martyr on 22 June 2004 by Pope John Paul II and was beatified by Pope Benedict XVI – through the Cardinal-Prefect of The Congregation of the Causes of Saints – on 20 November 2005 in Mexico. Pope Francis approved a miracle attributed to him on 21 January 2016, allowing for his canonization to take place; a date was determined at a consistory on 15 March 2016 with an announcement following that he would be proclaimed a saint on 16 October 2016.

The heart of the plant contains sugars and had been used by native peoples here to make a fermented drink. After the Spanish arrived, they took this fermented beverage and distilled it, producing the tequila known today. The popularity of the drink and the history behind it has made the town and the area surrounding it a World Heritage Site. It was also named a "Pueblo Mágico" (Magical Town).
