Blue Agave in Mazatlán

Los OsunaHeading to Mexico, Road Trips Foodies? If Mazatlán is on your itinerary, consider a stop for a tour of Vintana de los Osuna in the nearby mountain village of La Noria. You can explore a 130-year-old blue agave plantation and its distillery. The expansive estate was settled by the Osuna family soon after their arrival from Spain in 1864.

Daily walking tours take guests through the agave fields, where plantation guides explain the growing process and demonstrate how the blue agave is harvested. Visitors then tour both the ancient and modern distillery, sample agave juice, visit the estate’s wine cellar and enjoy final tastings of blue agave at the Los Osuna Bar.
