This is a quick tour stop if you are on your way to Valladolid or Chichen Itza from the Riviera Maya. It is not worth a drive on its own. There are English-speaking tour guides that give you a quick run down of the tequila making process. Then you get a taster of their different varieties of tequila. Kids are... More

The tour was quick (under 10 minutes) but covered the basics of tequila production. We enjoyed the tasting at the end but there are other places to do tequila tastings in more convenient locations.

There is nothing like few tequila shots in the early afternoon! But even better when it is fresh artisan tequila and accompanied with personalized tour of an agave farm and the distillery. The tour is fun and educational. The Mayapan Tequila Distillery uses over 400 year old traditional methods... After touring the farm and distillery you can sample their product... More

Best Tequila I've ever tasted! There were 6 bottles that we could try with lime and salt. We had our own guide and told a lot of how the tequila was made. You can buy your favorite tequila.

For a very fair price we got a private tour for our group of six. We got a quick overview about growing and harvesting the Agave as well as how the Tequila gets produced. The tour included a tasting of the different grades of Tequila.

No other tourists were there, but we had to wait a while for a tour (of just the two of us). The tour was short, somewhat informative with pretty big shots of tequila at the end. It was fine, but I'm not sure people need to take time to make this happen.

We have been to the distillery at least 3 times. The first time we were there, we really enjoyed the tour. Every step was taking place inside. We saw the agave growing, harvested into what they call pineapples, the smoking process, the horse drawn mill wheel and the fermenting vats. We even saw the still dripping tequila! We really enjoyed... More

a little hidden gem, it was hard to find it but worth the time, don't forget to get a couple of bottles of tequila, you'll will regret if you don't do it, I just brought 4 and regret I didn't bring more

This distillery offers a nice quick tour of the tequila making process, from the blue agave to burning to distilling to storage. When we visited there were young folks running the place but they were very professional and the young lady that gave the tour was 16 but she was extremely professional and courteous. The tequila tour was 40mxn and... More

I visited the Mayapan Traditional Agave Distillery on my last afternoon in Valladolid on November 17th. I took a taxi from Valladolid’s central area to the distillery, which is located just on the perimeter highway of the city (about 7 minutes’ drive). The taxi cost us 50 pesos on the way there and 40 pesos on the way back to... More
