Mexican Travel Trip: Things to Do in Tlaxcala?
Tlaxcala is the land of pulque, which comes from the agave plant like Mezcal and Tequila, but Pulque is an extreme experience because of its density. If its too much on your palette , you can also try “curados”: pulque mixed with fruit. There are several flavors, from peanut to celery, mango, strawberry or even oatmeal. Take a tour to visit the “haciendas pulqueras”, and discover these old and huge houses where pulque is made. A visit will also show you a place filled with beautiful landscapes, amazing stories and delicious food too.
Also, do not miss the archaeological site of Cacaxtla in Tlaxacal where you will admire pre-hispanic mural paintings.
