Have visited multiple time through the years and have seen the town Change. There is a beautiful fiery archaic church that was just expanded not to long ago and several shops around the town. Sometimes they have Pedro the donkey for picture moments or a huge iguana. The people are very friendly and will not bother you at all throughout... More

The information or history of how the Tequila is made is not interesting. According to staff it's a family owned business but the history of the ancestors or when it was established was not mentioned. The taste tasting is not worth your time and money. The premix tequila bottles for sale are over priced.

This isn't a huge ruins like Tulum. It's small and local. But if you take a guided tour you will get a good education on local history and culture. The ruins have been discovered over time. In 1990, when I first came, there was very little to see. Now (2016) there is much, much more. Tip - The middle of... More

We were lucky enough to visit during the festival the week leading up to May 3rd for a annual celebration so we got to see the families having fun in a carnival and celebratory scene. Several of the local homes double as restaurants and offer typical Yucatecan and Mayan foods not found elsewhere. Ask the locals for the best places... More

This is a little archeological area and town with lots of street vendors and a tequila shop. The tequila shop sets you up as "this is a tour" well, it's not. They give you aa brief (7 min) talk on what tequila is and then you get a free margaritas (6 oz total on ice) which is ok. Then they... More

The El Cedral area has the Islands oldest Church which is still active and is interesting to see. The plaza and Church had an authentic Mexican feel to it although the biggest part was just shops for tourists. Our favorite part was the Hacienda Tequila tasting. Our guide Karen gave an informative and enjoyable talk and then the tasting began.... More

I've been to several Tequila Tastings before. I wasn't expecting much. We tasted small batch Regalo De Dios tequila. Four tequilas and a few liquors made from tequila. Very informative and the tequila was quite tasty. I am quite snobby about my tequila, and yet I found that this was very good stuff. I would go back again, if only... More
