About this trip

Embark on an immersive 5 day /4 night escapade to Mexico's 2nd largest city, Guadalajara, in the state of Jalisco, where a trio of enriching experiences awaits. Immerse yourself in the world of tequila, tracing its origins and crafting process through engaging distillery visits and tastings. Delve into the artistic heartbeat of the city, wandering through galleries and encountering the vibrant expressions of Mexican art. To complete this sensory journey, indulge in spa activities, like blissful massage, letting the stress melt away and leaving you rejuvenated, inspired, and culturally awakened by the magic of the town of Tequila, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

**Some easy physical activities like walking tours are included in your trip. No physical preparation is required to make the most of the experience. Most walking tours are 2-2.5 hours with stops in between.

**Please note that although we do our best to accommodate vegan diets, Guadalajara is not very vegan friendly, and it can be difficult to find vegan options. We do our best, but cannot promise any vegan meals.
