What to Expect
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 handmade, 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 one of the most picturesque towns in the area with the colorful houses, cobblestone streets red roofs 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 El Quelite where you can enjoy a delicious local 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, comfortably in your private van/suburban.

We were a family of 6 (ages 2.5 to 71) and Carlos our tour guide was amazing and accommodating to us all day! We loved the leather shop (if you have young coco fans they will love it) and the interactive ceramics demo was one of my favorites of our whole trip. Bring extra bags
