Tour Details

Just 30 minutes from the port of Mazatlan, the picturesque village of El Quelite is famous for its beautiful red roof tile houses, narrow cobblestone streets, colorful houses, and tropical flowers. Take the El Quelite Rural Tour and put yourself into this picture.

En route, you will stop at the Quedamo village and visit a quail farm, a cheese factory, and ornamental fish tanks, before arriving at El Quelite. The town is so scenic and quaint, it inspired Francisco Terriquez to write the famous Mexican folk song, "Que Bonito es El Quelite" ("How Beautiful is El Quelite").

Stroll through the town's cobblestone streets and meet the friendly locals. Walk on narrow paving stone streets towards Lady of Guadalupe's church and a rustic bakery. Purchase samples of pastry and fresh cheese from a very old bakery, and shop for crafts hand-made by local artisans. You may even see locals play the pre-hispanic game called "the Ulama," a tradition that has been preserved through the generations. See the beautiful and unrivaled town of El Quelite on this scenic tour from Mazatlan.

Reviewer: Randy
El Quelite Rural Tour is a visit to old Mexico and a chance to see places and people in their rural Mexican villages. It's a 45 minute or so drive out of Mazatlan with a guide who shares what living in rural areas is like and gives some history along the way. We only had five guests in our van, so the guide asked if we wanted to take in anything special. I don't think we knew what to answer, so we stuck to the set tour. We visited a working farm and saw the livestock, checked out the cheese factories and then headed to El Quelite. Nice small town that raises fighting roosters (among other things). We than ate at a very unique restaurant. Good food, came to about $10 per person including tip and soda.
