ShoreTrips says...

There's more to Mazatlan than big game fishing and beaches. Venture outside the city for a hiking adventure that will introduce you to the tropical deciduous forest of the Sinaloan countryside, its towns, its people...and its tequila. Salud!

This fun adventure begins with a pickup at the cruise ship pier or your hotel followed by a 40-minute ride through the Sinaloan countryside. Your destination is the town of La Noria, home to the Vinata Los Osuna distillery. This is where the first of your 2 hikes begins. The cactus forests, fruit trees, old distillery ruins, and blue agave fields surrounding you will get you in the mood for your distillery visit. This moderate hike takes about 35 minutes, with some slight slopes and loose dirt in sections, but overall you can consider the terrain to be family-friendly.

Upon arrival at Los Osuna Distillery, you will find your hiking efforts richly rewarded with a factory tour and tequila tasting. Established in 1876, this family-run business retains the secrets passed down through generations of turning the fruit of the blue agave plant into the sublime spirit of tequila. Family pride shows through in each of their products, reflected by the won numerous awards bestowed upon them. But don't take our word for it, taste for yourself!

Now you'll make the hike back to the hacienda, where Doña Carolina will welcome you into her home and prepare an authentic Mexican lunch.

On the return ride to town, you will be filled with delicious food, strong tequila, and warm memories.
