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

We finally left the town of Tequila , though it was hard to turn our backs on the charms of this town at the heart of the Ruta del Tequila and part of a UNESCO World Heritage site. Before we left, we paid a visit to the cheese lady and explored the weirdly-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.

Traveling beyond Tequila

Just outside of the town of Tequila lives a woman who is famous for her traditional cheeses, which are delicious.

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.
