El Quelite rural tour
El QUELITE is located 25 miles northeast of Mazatlan, on the banks of the river that bears its name. On our way down, we will stop at EL QUEMADO village; HERE we will visit a quail farm, a cheese factory and the ornamental fish tanks.
The colorful village of EL QUELITE was the scene of major historical events during the Mexican revolution. By those years, several Rebel groups where formed and the most recognized was “Los Laureanos”, whose members were the scourge of the rich people of the region stealing the gold, that was carried thru the roads in stagecoaches, proceeding from the Sierra Madre mountains towards the coast.
Nowadays, El quelite has fantastic landscapes with rural atmosphere. Cute houses with red tile roofs covered by colorful bougamvillas will amaze your eyes. As part of the tour, we will take a stroll on narrow paving stone streets towards Lady of Guadalupe’s church, a rustic bakery and the cockfight training ranch.
Something interesting that you should know about this town is that some of their natives still preserve the tradition of playing a prehispanic game called “The Ulama”.
