I l.o.v.e.d Tequila! And not just because of the drink!
First of all I have to say that I absolutely love driving and the free road from Tepic to Tequila was particularly picturesque. We climbed up and down small ranges, whereas the toll highway was probably more level and at a lower altitude. The road was in great condition and the view fantastic. The vegetation at times was like a thick jungle, I also saw trees of daisies in full bloom.
This wonderful meandering way also allowed me to discover villages I would never have seen otherwise. Some I didn’t catch the name until I realized too late what a beautiful place it was. I did stop at a lovely and quaint village because the side of the main road was lined with souvenir shops and I couldn’t resist seeing what they were selling. I spent a few hours browsing and had fun purchasing a few wares that, I discovered later, were a lot cheaper than in Tonala, the market in Guadalajara.
This way also led me through the lovely town of Ixtlan del Rio. It was market day and the streets was bustling with activity. The main square had a wonderful live sized nativity. The city was so appealing I wanted to stop and shop, but I never found a place to park the RV and so had to push on.
As one gets closer to Tequila, the landscape changes to fields of the blue agave used to make Tequila.
Until next time my new road amigos!
