Traditions and Archaeology of Western Mexico
Discover the traditions and the history of our beautiful country. As you travel inland you'll discover a non touristy Mexico, rather genuine. Colorful fruit stands along the road show you a display of various products of the region invite your taste to discover new flavors. The road goes from green lush coastal plains to fertile valleys sheltered by mountains and ancient volcanoes. A visit to the archaeological site of " Los Toriles" (Aztatlan culture ruins) in Ixtlan del rio Nayarit, will give you the chance to glimpse the splendor of ancient mexican towns. Upon arriving to the old town of Tequila(1530) the tradition comes alive.
As we stroll along quaint plazas surrounded by colonial buildings, the sweet aroma of baked agave awakes your senses . Then you understand that Tequila is more than just our national spirit, it's part of our history, it's a deep tradition, intrinsic to our Mexican culture.

A full 14 1/2 hour day with lots of driving, beautiful scenery with quaint, historical stops along the way. Our guide, Cervando, could not have been more professional, knowledgeable and thoughtful. Plus, and this is a real plus in the jungle, he was a careful, and safe driver. Would wholeheartedly recommend booking with Cervando; we certainly will again.
