Half-Day Tour to Tequila Factory and El Quelite Village from Mazatlan
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Mazatlan Van Tours, Mazatlan 82110 Mexico
After picking you up at your hotel/cruise ship, you will head north of Mazatlan to visit the village La Noria, where you will see the local activities being done the old fashion way, leather belts and leather sandals being hand made, small coconut purses and a variety of souvenirs all made while you watch, wooden horse saddles being carved by hand and a local artist working the pottery.
Not far from this village is La Vinata where you will drive through acres and acres of the blue agave plantation to arrive to the tequila distillery where you will be briefed on the ancient and current process of producing tequila. This tequila factory is unique because it maintains its old equipment that was used in the 1800's for you to witness both processes, and then to sample their product. From here it's off to the charming village of El Quelite on of the most picturesque towns in the area with the colorful houses, cobblestone streets and relaxing environment. This town is known for its cock farm where you can see the roosters first hand, with a stop at the local bakery with an adobe brick oven offering freshly baked pastries.
Then it's time to head back to the center of the village where you can enjoy a delicious local typical lunch, then wander a bit around the plaza and church before heading back to Mazatlan. This tour is highly recommended to enjoy the beautiful sights and to learn about a lot of the culture and history in this area of Mexico.

My husband and I spent a glorious time with our tour guide. He was extremely informative and a really great companion.
Very enjoyable your with Martin! Took us around town! Went out of his way to show us around before the tequila plantation. Tequila plantation was a good experience as well as tequila tasting! Delicious tequilas! Patricio was very kind and patient esp with how hot it was.
First of all, we had a great tour guide - JeanCarlos JC. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. The countryside and tequila ranch was interesting to see. We had lunch in the El Quelite Village. It is very charming but not much shopping. The lunch at the restaurant was very good. Place was clean and staff friendly. Basically, a very enjoyable, low-key day spent outside of Mazatlan.
A very experienced and accredited guide, with only the 2 of us in the Van. Lunch and a brief walking tour of El Quelite small town were wonderful. We also learned a great deal about earlier and modern tequile production.
We loved our tour guide Carlos! Very informed. Tequila tour was very interesting. The food at lunch was delicious!!
