From hardy cacti to delicate orchids, you'll see hundreds of plant species. Plus, by visiting with us, you help fund this non-profit institution. Tour Historic El Tuito Head out into the Sierra Madre Mountains in our open-air Mercedes Benz Unimog 4x4 trucks to the town of El Tuito. Explore the center of town and main church on a brief walking tour. Visit a tortillaria and a "casa" know for producing the area's famous Panella cheese to sample this regional treat and see how it is made. Mexico's Beautiful Cemeteries One of the most unique and beautiful sites in the Mexican outback is the local cemetery and El Tuito has one of the best. In the Mexican culture, cemeteries are a place of celebration; they are colorful, full of flowers and gifts and usually busy with visitors. You will enjoy a guided tour of the local cemetery and learn all about its culture significance Stunning Hacienda and Racilla Distillery As you drive down a dirt road that seems to be in the middle of nowhere, you will be taken aback as the Hacienda el Divisadero comes into view. Tour the distillery and sample some Raicilla - once a "moonshine" made from agave, now considered a fine spirit. Take a short, guided walk to view ancient petroglyphs created pre-Hispanic, indigenous people. Then relax in the open-air hacienda and enjoy a complete lunch.
