Description of Raicilla Tour in Mixtlán and GuachinangoAlthough the tequila is the king of Mexican spirits, the Raicilla is one of the secrets of Jalisco best kept, it is ... the queen!

You will discover the villages of Atenguillo and Mixtlán , embedded in the mountain range. From there, you will go to the top of the mountains to find this small but incredibly productive operation. You will visit the plantations, learn how they grow and take care of this native plant. Then you will experience how they make the drink. You can even try to extract the juices from the root of the plant by yourself. Get ready for this new experience!
These fantastic people and their followers will greet you. They will cook for you a delicious meal while you savor their product and learn how these people have defied all expectations for such a small and local operation in the mountains, through export to Europe . We will have a special dinner prepared by the same people.
