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.

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 (not a hard thing to do in Mexico) in the town of Etzatlan.
Beautiful Hacienda el Carmen.
