Route from Tequila to the Nevado de Colima

Tequila, Colima, Amatitlán, El Arenal, Jala, Tepic

Begin this tour in the capital of the state of Nayarit: Tepic. We recommend you stroll through the center of this colonial city, starting from the Main Square to visit the Catedral de la Inmaculada Concepción (Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception) and the Casa Amado Nervo and Juan Escutia museums and purchase beautiful handcrafts from the Cora and Huichol people.

The Pueblo Mágico (Magical Town) of Jala is located one hour southeast of Tepic. The place is surrounded by green mountains and has well-preserved buildings from the colonial era. The most popular excursions are the visit to the El Ceboruco volcano and climb the Cerro De la Cruz (De La Cruz hill) to admire the panoramic view. Highly recommended visits: the Basílica Lateranense de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción (Lateran Basilica of Our Lady of the Assumption) and the Community Museum. Before leaving, be sure to take one of the traditional crafts made out of corn husks with you.

Now head one hour and fifteen minutes southeast to reach the iconic Pueblo Mágico de Tequila. As you stroll through downtown you will find numerous shops and production houses, the most important in the country, where you can take a tour of its facilities. We recommend that you visit the Museo Nacional de Tequila (National Museum of Tequila), the Palacio Municipal (Municipal Palace) and the Parroquia de Santiago Apóstol (Santiago Apostol Parish).

Amatitlán is fifteen minutes away and is one of the main producers of mezcal and tequila in the state of Jalisco. In its Central Plaza you can visit the spring, the Parroquia de la Inmaculada Concepción (Parish of the Immaculate Conception) and the Interpretive Museum of the Agave Landscape. As you stroll through its cobbled streets you can buy some of the small replicas of barrels, the most representative crafts of the place. Don't forget to try the birria and the enchiladas, they are delicious!

Just fifteen minutes southeast of Amatitlán is El Arenal. This town is an important destination on the tequila route. From here you can take some of the excursions on horseback through the blue agave areas and former haciendas. Stroll through the Main Plaza, where you will find ceramic crafts. Don't forget to visit the Parroquia de Nuestra Señora del Rosario and the kiosk, and try the white pozole in one of the small restaurants in the area.

Ciudad Guzmán is a beautiful Pueblo Mágico (Magical Town), birthplace of the pianist and composer Consuelo Velázquez and the muralist José Clemente Orozco. Stroll through the Main Square and visit the Cathedral, the Parroquia del Sagrario and the City Hall building. Also visit the restaurants and craft shops of Los Portales.

You will end this tour in the city of Colima, one hour and fifteen minutes southwest of Ciudad Guzmán. Its Historic Center with its narrow cobbled pedestrian streets are ideal for strolling calmly. We highly recommend the Jardín Libertad (Freedom Garden) with its kiosk brought from Belgium and visits to the Cathedral, the Regional Museum of History and the beautiful clay crafts.
