The Agave and Tequila region is located in in the Valles Region of the Jalisco State, between the maor city of Guadalajara and coastal resort town of Puerto Vallarta.

Situated between the foothills of the Tequila Volcano and the valley of the Rio Grande River, the region is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in recognition of the centuries of cultural tradition represented in the entire process of growing agave and distilling into tequila.

Visiting the farms and distilleries has become increasingly popular. In addition to driving, there is also a scenic railway that includes stops along the way.

The region also features several significant archeological ruins related to a culture known as the Guachimontones.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
