Everything you need to know about the Mezcal Route

We've all heard about the wine route, but very few are acquainted with the delight of traversing the Mezcal route in the beautiful state of Oaxaca. Part of the magic of Oaxacan land is the production of Mezcal.

The area known as the Central Valleys, where diverse cultures converge with their own traditions and gastronomy, so if you decide to embark on this journey, take your time in each culture and enjoy the landscape of the skies and mountains of Oaxaca.

How to enjoy the Mezcal route in Oaxaca?

The first step is to book your accommodation in the best hotels in Oaxaca or start outlining the itinerary for your journey through Oaxacan lands. We recommend starting in the city of Oaxaca de Juárez and then visiting the Mezcal-producing villages.

What makes this journey an unforgettable experience is that you can immerse yourself in the universe surrounding the production of this ancestral drink. In a way, it will be possible to connect with pre-Hispanic cultures by witnessing their culture through this delicious alcoholic beverage.

Here are some tips for your next journey through the Mezcal route:

1. Taste all the Mezcals

You might hesitate to taste unbranded or uncertified Mezcals from the Consejo Regulador de la Calidad del Mezcal (Regulatory Council for Mezcal Quality), but sometimes these Mezcals that come in recycled soda bottles can be much more delicious than the highly-priced ones. Remember that, even if they don't come in bohemian-style presentations, these unbranded Mezcals are the most artisanal, produced by people who, generation after generation, continue recreating this ancestral tradition.

2. Research the best stops on the route

The Mezcal Route is located in the Sierra Sur, the mountainous region where coffee is also produced, thanks to its forest richness. There are several villages that make up this route, so especially if you don't have enough time, we recommend noting down the places you are most interested in visiting. Many of these villages do not require a car to explore, so don't hesitate to wander through their streets to immerse yourself in these rich Oaxacan cultures. While visiting the villages, don't miss out on their typical dishes, as each one has a culinary tradition completely different from the other.

3. Stay in the best hotels in Oaxaca

Some of the best Mezcal-producing villages are 46 kilometers from the capital. Therefore, you can choose to stay in the best hotel in Oaxaca, El Callejón. The advantage of this hotel lies in the Barrio de Xochimilco, where it is very easy to leave the city due to its proximity to the highway. Also, you must consider whether you will stay in each village you visit; in that case, you will have to book a room in the best hotels in Oaxaca. The advantage of staying in each village is the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the culture. Don't forget to taste the food that probably pairs excellently with Mezcal, so you can enjoy the flavor of Oaxacan cuisine even more.

Where to start the Mezcal route?

The most recommended is to start in the city of Oaxaca because it is easier to reach from any part of the country or the world to the capital. Later, you can travel the winding roads that will take you to the heart of Mezcal. Therefore, don't hesitate to stay at El Callejón, one of the best hotels in Oaxaca, where the Oaxacan experience will multiply, as we are a boutique venue that rehabilitates a colonial construction. Likewise, we are located in the heart of Barrio Xochimilco, one of the oldest in the city, where textile workshops abound. Don't hesitate to start your Mezcal route in the vicinity of Hotel El Callejón.
