Learn Vallarta Offers New Rural Organic Farm Walk

January 7, 2015

Pre-Hispanic El Tuito is one hour south of Vallarta by local bus. Learn local history as you walk through town. Stop at the farmhouse to sample raicilla while observing propagation and seed-saving techniques...

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - If you are wondering what it's like in the rural countryside away from busy Vallarta, take a day and enjoy the beauty and fresh mountain air of quiet El Tuito. If you are a lover of organic veggies, panela cheese, blue corn tortillas and curious about the local moonshine, this is a walk for you.

Pre-Hispanic El Tuito is one hour south of Vallarta by local bus. Learn local history as you walk through town. See typical adobe architecture, clay studio producing pre-Hispanic figures, sample blue corn tortillas and locally-made soft Panela cheese.

Stop at the farmhouse to sample raicilla while observing propagation and seed-saving techniques. Then a short walk through the countryside to the working farm where you learn about tilling, composting, mulching, planting, irrigation, crop rotation and harvesting.

Finish your walk back into town to visit a backyard bakery using a wood-fired oven and then an optional stop for lunch. Percentage of fee goes to support this non-profit community supported farm project. This walk is in collaboration with Organic Select.

Held every Thursday from 10 am - 2 pm, the $40 USD/person fee is well worth it. (Children under 12 are $20). RESERVATIONS REQUIRED BY TUESDAY NOON. Book online at escaperoutevallarta.com, or email sandra.learn.vallarta(at)gmail.com for more information.
