Oaxaca: Mezcal Adventure

2. Oaxaca: Mezcal Adventure

During this experience, you'll be taken through the Valley of Tlacolula to Santiago Matalan. During the ride, you'll be introduced to the culture of mezcal and its geographical context. Once in Santiago Matatlán, you'll be visiting an agave plantation to learn about these plants, their life cycle, varieties, and uses. Then, visit two different mezcal distilleries to see real production going on. From a home scale family-owned business with a long tradition of making mezcal in a rustic way to another way of production more sophisticated, yet artisanal. As each maestro mezcalero gives a personal touch to every batch, each tasting on-site means immersion in the mezcal culture. Afterward, you'll make a stop for lunch in a nice and neat last distillery with a great local cuisine restaurant. By this point of the trip, you'll already know how to taste mezcal as an expert. The premium quality mezcal you’ll taste here will be great for a last toast before heading back home.

What people are saying about Oaxaca

Hierve El Agua has changed in 10 years (the last time I came)! Much more touristy and therefore much more crowded but still worth it. The visit to discover the methods of coloring wool was super interesting, I really found it surprising to see with which elements of nature it is possible to dye wool in so many colors. The mezcal factory was a bit fast… and less interesting I find. Regarding the logistics, we called the day before to have confirmation of the pick-up time because we had not received confirmation and we then received a whatsapp message from the local partner to confirm the exact time, which was respected so organization at the top! The driver explained to us well (in Spanish and English) the different stops we were going to make and at each stop, the time we would spend there so everything was very clear. I recommend this excursion!

The tour was very well organized. It met our expectations. The making of the rugs and the fabulous water boils !! The delicious food. Our super punctual guide / driver! I didn't love the mezcal factory because it looks dirty! (But hey, that is not the responsibility of the tour organizers). I highly recommend it !!

This tour was a lot of fun. The weaving was a great experience, the Hierve el Agua were beautiful. Afterwards we could have lunch in a restaurant for a fee. The buffet was delicious. Finally, there was the tasting. That was fantastic too. The entire tour was a complete success and highly recommended.

The waterfall was fabulous, and so good to have a cool swim afterwards!

Everything was on time and we had sufficient time for each activity
