    It's a store with a bar, and I think they also serve some food. Whether you eatm drink or just walk by... the place is so beautiful that deserves a few minutes to walk around the old-fashioned distillery. It takes only 5 or maybe 10 minutes... and every corner of the place is worth of your time!

    It's probably the cheapest tour the local distilleries are selling... that's a good reason to take it. But another good reason is the fact that it's not well-known commercial tequila. Cuervo and Sauza are major producers, their tours might be excellent as well... but they will be around a big factory, not in a small 'hacienda' as at La Cosadia.

    The place is 10 to 15 minutes out of town, among never-ending blue agave fields. You'll get to see the ovens where the agave's 'pineapple' is cooked, the fermentation and distillation process, taste 'mosco' (agave juice); they have a small but quite complete museum of tequila, with all kind of bottles and of course... you'll get to drink a lot of free tequila in the 'tasting' area.

    The tour is definitively worth the USD 6.00 I paid... but I hope you don't get the same retarded guide I got.

    it is the most expensive way to visit Tequila, but 60Dlls is worth if you consider that it includes train transportation, mariachi and tequila on board, the compleat tour on Hacienda El Refugio, a lunch offered by Restaurant La Chata and free bar on the retourn.

    The bad thing is that is available only on saturday.

    Favorite thing: There are three ways to visit Tequila:
    The most comfortable, fun and expensive: Tequila Express train
    The most available and midle priced: Panoramex tours
    The cheapest: on your own, take a bus from Central Vieja in Guadalajara to Tequila (45min) and walk to the factories, asking when is the next tour available in spanish or english (only done from 10 to 14 hrs)

    Fondest memory: Visiting Haciendas
