A composite strato-volcano located nearby the city of Guadalajara. The town of Tequila (home of Jose Cuervo, Sauza, and other tequilas) sits at the foot of the volcano. Blue agave fields cover the foothills around the volcano.
Take highway 15 west from Guadalajara (towards Tepic) for 36 miles
At Tequila's large Pemex station, take the road to the left of the station, straight into the center of town
Turn left at the busy spot where the street ends and follow Hidalgo street south of town.
Ignore the 'Prohibido El Paso' signs.
You can drive the majority of the cobble stone road close to the top and then it's a short walk to the top.
At the top you can see "The Plug", an igneous intrusion in the crater. There is also a cluster of radio towers at the top.
