Day trip to Saraguro


Saraguro is home to an indigenous group who maintains many of its original traditions and ways of life. You will visit the community of Gera. In the laid back atmosphere you interact with the community and see their agricultural cultivations. One if them is the Penco, a Agave, from which they make a Tequila-like drink. You will learn how they collect the liquid of the plant and get to know the different steps of the Tequila production. For lunch you have traditional food in the community and can tast the Tequila. In the afternoon you will visit a viewpoint where you can enoy the natural scenery. There will be time to take a look at the local handicrafts before you will go on to a cave and a waterfall and then return to Cuenca.
