Tequila in Tequila – Ruta del Tequila, Mexico

We wandered around the trapped-in-time town of Santiago de Tequila, exploring this Pueblo Magico and UNESCO World Heritage Site region and going on a tour of the Casa Herradura tequila destillery. It’s all in a day’s work on the Ruta del Tequila in Jalisco, Mexico.

Traveling and Tasting – Ruta del Tequila, Jalisco, Mexico

After a week of catching up on work and traveling around to check out two boutique hotels (Clarum 101 and Villa Ganz, both part of the Mexico Boutique Hotels group) we finally left Guadalajara. On our way out we stopped off in the suburb of Tlaquepaque to have lunch at Mariscos el Social.  If you ever happen to find yourself in Guadalajara don’t miss this seafood restaurant which serves up ginormous portions of amazing ceviche for only 55 pesos (less than US$4), and many other wonderful seafood dishes. Then it was on to the Ruta del Tequila in Jalisco to find something delicious Mexican booze to wash it down with.

Looks like we are heading in the right direction.  yes, there is really a town called Tequila.

After that we headed off to the nearby town of Tequila, passing fields of blue agave which is the essential ingredient of the famous nectar named after the town.  Tasting tour tomorrow!
