Drinking liquid gold in the birthplace of the world famous alcoholic drink, what could be more Mexican than that? A short bus ride away from Guadalajara lies the Mexican town of Tequila. You guessed it, Tequila’s main export is, well, tequila. Here, in Tequila you can go on a tequila tour in one of the distilleries. You will see for yourself the process of transforming the humble agave plant into the drink which is loved around the world.
First things first, trust me when I say this. You do not need to pay for an organised tour to take you from Guadalajara to one of the tequila distilleries. Simply get a bus from Guadalajara and pay for a tequila tour in the town of Tequila. You have much more flexibility with your day, you can choose which distillery you visit and it’s cheaper than an organised tour straight from Guadalajara. Sounds like a no-brainer to me, am I right or am I right?
The aroma of spicy Mexican delights being cooked up, narrow roads packed with cars, street performers vying for the audience’s applause, along with their cash and stunning buildings at every turn. That is exactly what you can expect from Guadalajara and a taster of things to come on your Guadalajara self-guided walking tour.
After spending weeks relaxing on beaches in the USA and Mexico. Most notably relaxing on the white sands of Balandra Beach. It was finally time for our first Mexican city destination – Guadalajara. I was sceptical prior to my arrival. I didn’t know what to expect from Mexico’s second most populous city.
