Exciting ecotourism activities in Tequila for nature lovers
The beautiful magical town of Tequila was founded on the slopes of the Tequila Volcano and is surrounded by fascinating nature.
As its name says, this is the place where the most famous drink in Mexico is produced. But, in addition to coming to this colonial destination to learn more about the production of tequila (and of course, try some of the labels that produce it), travelers can find many more things to do and see, including fantastic ecotourism activities.
Tequila Volcano is an icon of the region and one of the best options for ecotourism.
A hiking route through its extension allows getting to know the typical flora and fauna of this area of Jalisco closely. Besides, as you go up, you can admire the wonderful agave landscape so characteristic of Tequila and which has been named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
It is an easy walk that can be done as a family without any problem. Of course, it is recommended to go prepared with mountain boots or all-terrain sports shoes.
“Los Azules” Waterfall
For those who prefer to be in contact with water, “Los Azules” Waterfall is the ideal place to visit in Tequila.
To reach the hot springs that come from the Tequila Volcano, you must walk downhill through a ravine, for this reason, this activity is mainly recommended to people with good physical condition. Once there, besides being able to enjoy a fresh swim in the pools of crystal clear waters, you can practice rappelling.
Agave fields by bicycle
The beautiful agave fields that can be seen from the Tequila Volcano can be visited in an amusing and active way: on board of a bicycle.
Enthusiasts of physical activity can enjoy an original bike ride to feel, smell and immerse in the unique agave landscape of Tequila, Jalisco.
Of course, after so much physical activity you need a good rest and for that, nothing better than Hotel Villa Tequila. With a privileged location a few steps from downtown, beautiful architecture, restaurants with the best of the region’s traditional cuisine and rooms that seem to be brought from paradise, it is an oasis that offers the best lodging experience in Tequila.
Nature, history, gastronomy, and traditions in one place: the magical town of Tequila!
