Itinerary Details

Day 1

  International Arrival

Bienvenido a Queretaro! Guests arrive at Queretaro Airport and are picked up and greeted by our local Experience Host. First order of business: drop our bags and freshen up at Hotel El Serafín, located in the Historic Center of Queretaro.

For dinner, we’ll walk over to the main plaza square and feast on a tasting dinner menu paired with the region’s best wines and enjoy an evening of getting to know those in our group (who will no doubt become friends!)

Meals included: dinner


Day 2

Learning to cook traditional cuisine & discovering Peña de Benal

Now, it’s time to work off the wine from last night. Let’s start our morning with a guided tour of Queretaro’s Centro Historico, led by our Experience Host, and stop at a Mercado to grab a few fresh ingredients for our cooking workshop!

We’re learning how to cook traditional Queretaño cuisine today with the chef of Pia Cocina Libre, whose recipes and fresh, locally-grown ingredients take the traditional flavors of the past and reintroduce them into modern, delicious dishes. We’ll learn about the history of the recipes and the ingredients local to the region.

After our cooking workshop, let’s explore the magic town of Bernal, where the mighty and beautiful monolith, Peña de Bernal, instantly grabs your attention. Here you’ll have free time to explore the town, do some shopping, and of course, take beautiful pictures of the monolith at every corner! We’ll make our way back to Queretaro afterward and the rest of the evening will be yours to explore the historic center of town.

Meals included: breakfast, lunch



Day 3

Discovering San Joaquin & visit to apple blossom farm

Today, we’re heading towards the mountains into the magic town of San Joaquin and begin our experience by visiting an apple blossom farm where they make the region’s best cider. We’ll meet Doña Lore and learn the history and process of apple cider in the region and get to taste a selection of ciders and marmalades produced on-site.

Afterward, let’s head to the main square and enjoy the cuisine of the town for lunch. You’ll have some free time to explore after lunch and then we’ll finish our experience going underground with a visit to the Gruta Los Herrera, a beautiful cave with a lot of great stalactites and stalagmites. Enjoy the sunset on our ride back to Queretaro where the rest of the evening will be yours.

Meals included: breakfast, lunch



Day 4

Queretaro Sensory Experiences (seeing, hearing, smelling, touching and tasting!)

On this day we will offer a magnificent tour. You will have the opportunity to visit Bodegas De Cote, where you will learn about the wine production processes, visit the tank rooms where wine is aged in casks, and you will be able to walk among the vineyards and the fig and olive trees, in addition to tasting the splendid wines that are created at the vineyard.

In the Royal Tobacco Factory, you will learn about the history of cigars in Mexico, from the Viceroyalty of New Spain to the present day. You will also be able to see how cigars are rolled, the different tobacco blends, and the stocks on hand.

You will do a cheese pairing tasting in Bocanegra, where you will recognize how to enhance or complement the different types of cheeses that are made there, in addition to touring the maturation cellar.

In the Primus Brewery, you can drink all the beer you want while you take the tour of its facilities. The meal will be in a delicious regional restaurant where you can try the typical food of the area.







Just down the street from the centerpiece of Plaza de Armas is a monumental fountain dedicated to city benefactor Don Juan de Urrutia, which rests in El Serafín Hotel, thus giving its name, El Serafin or “The Fountain”.

The building housing the hotel was built in the 1800s serving originally as a city hacienda.  When you begin to explore the nooks and crannies of the hotel, you can see some aspects of the historic construction use of wood, stone and adobe.

El Serafin Hotel is located right next to the main plaza at Calle Independencia #22 in the Historic Center of Santiago de Querétaro.
