What to expect

A day of discovery deep into the Sierra Madre mountains awaits on this tour. You'll journey to places where you're more likely to spot iguana tracks than tyre marks, visit traditional villages such as El Tuito and see how local delicacies are made.

You'll hop aboard a Unimog – a 4x4 truck with special off-roading abilities – to travel up and along mountain passes into the Sierra Madre. Your first stop is the botanical gardens, where you'll find out about plants such as aloe vera and hoja santa, which are used in cooking and remedies. Then, it's on to El Tuito to visit a cheese-maker where panella and requeson are produced as well as a tortilleria where 100 tortillas are made every minute.

Continuing our journey, you'll be able to spot ancient petroglyphs carved into the rocks before we arrive at a hacienda where you'll break for a traditional lunch of tacos and salad. You'll even see how raicilla is made – similar to tequila – before returning to the coast.
