Know More about this tour

Your El Quelite day trip begins with pickup from your Mazatlan hotel. Relax on the short drive to this riverside village, 25 miles (40 kilometers) northeast of Mazatlan, and experience rural Mexican life when you stop to visit a quail farm, a cheese factory and a producer of ornamental fish tanks.

Your professional guide will provide some background history before your arrival in El Quelite, explaining how it was the scene of major historical events during the Mexican Revolution. The area was home to several groups of rebels, the most recognized being Los Laureanos, who stole the gold carried by stagecoaches making their way from the Sierra Madre Mountains down to the coast.

Things are much quieter in El Quelite these days, and now the town is better known for its rural atmosphere and lovely surrounding countryside. Take a stroll around the quiet streets lined with adobe houses, and admire their red-tiled roofs and gardens of colorful bougainvillea. Your walk takes you along narrow stone streets to the church of Our Lady of Guadalupe, passing a rustic bakery and a cockfighting training ranch.

Along the way, you might see locals sitting outside in the street, playing the ancient pre-Hispanic game called the Ulama.

To complete your day trip to El Quelite, choose the lunch option to include a traditional lunch at El Meson de los Laureanos, the most famous Mexican restaurant in the state of Sinaloa.
