We visited the Tule tree, a bread and chocolate store, Hierve el Agua, the Mitla archeological area, a weaving store and a mezcal factory. Everything was really interesting and our guide Karla was really nice and accommodating. The entries to Tule, Mitla and Hierve el Agua are not included. The price isn't high, but it would have been good to have these listed. We wish we would have had a longer and longer explanation in Mitla, including history. We stopped at a buffet place for lunch. Even though the quality was good for a buffet it would have been nice to have other options.

Talvez se mudassem a Logistica do passeio seria melhor. Pelo que pesquisei, a maioria das operadoras de turismo deixa Hierve del água para o final, este passeio, fez o mesmo. Tivemos uma manhã bem longa na fábrica de Mezcal e na de artesanatos. O almoço foi num restaurante Ok, com buffet sem muitas opções. A tarde fizemos um tour por Mitla (mais ou menos 1h), lá por 16h que fomos para Hierve. Ou seja, chegamos lá quase que no crepúsculo. Chegamos no nosso hotel eram 20h30... Apesar disso tudo, os lugares da parte da tarde salvaram o dia e merecem ser conhecidos.
