The Last of the Tequila – Ruta del Tequila, Jalisco, Mexico

This post is part 4 of 7 in the series Mexican Tequila

Yes, we did finally leave the town of Santiago de Tequila, though it was hard to turn our backs on the charms of this town at the heart of the Ruta del Tequila which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Before we left we paid a visit to the cheese lady and explored the wierdly-round remains at the Guachimontones archaeological site.

This lady makes wonderful cheese, in a tiny hamlet outside of a small town outside of Tequila.  And I don’t even like cheese.

We stumbled upon this fiesta in Etzatlan, not a hard thing to do in Mexico,

Karen and Mike (our host in Tequila) at the great ruins of Guachimontones.  An amazing (and free) archaeological site of great importance that is almost unknown even among Mexicans.
