La Ruta del Tequila - The Tequila Trail

Atotonilco el Alto, Jalisco, Mexico

Wander through the towns of El Arenal, Amatitán, Tequila and Magdelena, following the "Tequila Route".

The Mexican government this year (2007) began promoting La Ruta del Tequila, a Tequila Trail, with the wine country of California's Napa Valley as a model, that will draw tourists to visit distilleries, such as the Don Valente operation.

The Tequila Trail represents an important part of Mexico´s tourist contribution to world culture.

The Tequila Trail was created with the intention of helping increase the competitiveness within the tourist industry and related sectors in the municipalities of El
Arenal, Amatitan, Tequila, Magdalena and Teuchitlán, together with promoting our national drink "Tequila".

Both are closely linked to the economic and cultural development in the region. Past centuries are reflected in valuable cultural heritage, archaeological monuments and unique, magnificent constructions takes you back to past times as history, art and architecture are blended in a unique way shaping places like no other: the path of Tequila to the Agavero Landscape. Familiarizing yourself with the route will show you what Jalisco tourism has to offer to world culture. Something you must not miss.

The Agavero Landscape and the old industrial plants already form part of the heritage of mankind. A meeting held in Lithuania during July declared its natural landscape a winner with world distinction for its outstanding universal value and cultural significance beyond borders. 

The Tequila Regulatory Council is responsible for managing The Tequila Trail for the Agavero Landscape. Tourists will have the opportunity to explore archaeological sites, old style houses, opal and obsidian mines, distilleries and the magnificent Agavero Landscape. Familiarizing yourself with the route will show you what Jalisco tourism has to offer to world culture. Again, something that you must not miss out on.
