A Day In Etla: Quesillo, Museums & Sites Galore

To start your day, you’ll head to Patricia’s farm nestled into the valley of Etla, where she utilizes her family’s cow milk to make fresh quesillo, queso fresco, and requesón. You’ll see the process from start to finish and get to participate if you’d like. You’ll get a walk through of her property where the family has a range of farm animals, from donkeys and cows to goats and chickens.

Enjoy a homemade breakfast of memelas and freshly squeezed fruit water.

From here we will head to the Centro De Artes in San Agustin and the factory-turned-museum to check out its gorgeous grounds and the organic paper-making workshop below.

Visit the cult classic castle in Etla and its elves, and discover if you’re a chosen one! We’ll have lunch across the street at the quaint and delicious local spot, El Restaurante Comedor Chefi.*
