A Taste of Mexico

Walk along the scenic, main boardwalk of Ensenada known as Ventana al Mar, the Flag Square, and see what makes this city, the "Cinderella of the Pacific." Once you have soaked up some sun and views of coastal Ensenada, get ready to spice up your skills by learning the secrets of making authentic Margarita with worm salt.

Learn about the elaboration of artisanal mezcal and delicious margaritas during this fun workshop in Ensenada. Discover the authentic Oaxacan recipe from an expert local instructor and taste the special margarita with a touch of worm salt. Enjoy a tasting of artisanal mezcal that includes 7 different flavors of mezcal, learn about the Oaxacan culinary culture and buy a variety of coffee, tamarind and coconut products. You will explore the differences between mezcal's three most popular varieties as you sample Blanco, Reposado, and Anejo, each with its unique distillation process. You can also purchase bottles of Mezcal to take home as souvenirs of your memorable day in Mexico.

After your Mexican lunch, enjoy delicious margaritas during your tasting experience while learning how to prepare this world-famous cocktail that originated here in Ensenada. Learn how to properly make the classic Margarita, Margarita jalapeno, and Margarita Tamarindo. Your private host will teach you about the origins of the 16th-century mezcal beverage, its captivating history, and the intricate creation process.

Your tour will end at The Opal Mine Jewelry store where you can view and purchase Mexican Opals, known to the Aztecs by the name Vitzitziltecpal, which means hummingbird stone due to its similarity to the bright iridescent colors of the bird's plumage.

Awesome tour

Jose was a great tour guide. Due to circumstances beyond his control, we had to make some changes on the listed tour. But he made it even better. I really felt like I got to see parts of Ensenada I never would’ve seen on your typical tour. He took us to all the hole in the wall places and we ate the best tacos. Very very personable and nice. Highly recommend this tour
