Tequila drinking on the rise
!JUST ANOTHER TEQUILA SUNRISE!

Tequila (Spanish pronunciation: [teˈkila]) or as the Americans say…Ta kill ya!

Tequila is the distilled beverage made from the blue agave plant, primarily in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, in the highlands (Los Altos) of the north western Mexican state of Jalisco.

Tequila is the smoooooooooth drink that is now taking the world in a whole new direction. From the pueblo of San Pancho where you can find Roberto’s Bungalows it’s a two and a half hour beautiful drive up highway 200 through the jungle of the Nayarit coast into the farmlands into Tequila.

I drove through Tequila a few years ago and it was a beautiful site, as it reminded me so much of the Napa Valley. The rows of the Blue Agave plants are everywhere the flat lands and up and down the mountains just as the rows of the grapes are in the Napa Valley. The city itself was beautiful and spotless. I have friends who have restaurants in the United States who come down and pick their special barrels of Tequila for their customer’s enjoyment. Tequila is becoming the new sipping drink of the elite and tasking it in a whole new direction. The tequila drinker of the past was the one who did the salt, shoot and bite the lime drink over and over until they passed out is looking like a thing of the past. The tee shirt that comes to mind when talking about Gringo drinking tequila in Mexico is “One tequila, two tequila, three tequila… FLOOR”.

The new smooth tequila is fast becoming the NEW drink of the stars. Justin Timberlake has partnered with Sauza tequila to launch Sauza 901 a super-premium tequila, which bears the numbers of Timberlake’s hometown area code in Memphis, Tennessee. The brand will have a presence at Justin Timberlake’s world tour, The 20/20 Experience, with a Sauza 901 bar at every show.

Justin Say’s “My love for tequila began a few years ago after I visited the tequila heartland of Jalisco, Mexico, and saw the passion and craftsmanship that goes into every bottle,” “That trip inspired me to create 901”.

Sean (Diddy) Combs is another Star on the run to make Tequila the next expensive sipping drink.
Diageo and Combs Wine & Spirits have formed a 50-50 joint venture to acquire DeLeón – which can sell for more than $1,000 a bottle – for an undisclosed sum.
Diageo said DeLeón will boost its share of the “ultra premium” tequila market, which includes brands that sell for more than $40 a bottle. Diageo also has another upmarket tequila, Don Julio. Both DeLeón and Don Julio sit at the higher end of the price scale compared to Jose Cuervo, which Diageo stopped distributing in the US in July.
DeLeón has five variants, varying in price from $120 to more than $1,000, and is popular among US musicians and in Hollywood, the drinks company said.

So my suggestion is if you are paying $1,000 dollars for a bottle of Tequila you better sip it. I’m not sure if this is the tequila you should be making frozen Margarita’s out of. So as I see it the days of slamming Tequila are reserved to the crazy American who hasn’t quite got the message yet. Which living down here I can say it probably won’t change much for the tequila drinking vacationing youngsters enjoying throwing up and hanging out with the toilet bowl as your date for the evening for Spring Break each year, or the parents who find that an all inclusive stay gives you a free pass to all the tequila you can drink and we are not talking Justin’s or Diddy’s top of the line tequila.

I think it’s time to book a vacation to Roberto’s Bungalows while you can still get a sip of tequila for free with a trip to Tequila with Earl and Jane and we can be your designated drivers and you can sip your way through a beautiful day in the beautiful City of TequilA and buy a couple of bottles while you can still afford it!

Client review on Trip Advisor…..

We completely agree with all the very positive comments others have made here about Roberto’s. Jane, Earl and Cassy are perfect hosts, the bungalows and grounds are beautiful and accommodating, and the location is excellent, right in the middle of everything. We checked in for 3 days and stayed for a week. Very highly recommended!
A word on safety in Mexico. My husband and I just returned from nearly a month in Mexico, with a rented car and no itinerary. We wandered the Riveria Nayarit from San Blas to Puerto Vallarta with no problems or concerns. When we were planning our trip, many of our friends expressed worries about our safety and seemed sure we would be shot, if not sold into slavery. They probably watch too much TV. Throughout our fantastic vacation, we felt as safe as at home, and maybe more so. Even though we speak very little Spanish, we encountered only friendly, welcoming and helpful folks, and never for a moment felt the slightest discomfort, threat or danger. So tell your friends to take a hike, get on a plane and head for Nayarit. And don’t miss San Pancho, or Roberto’s!

Roberto´s Bungalows, San Pancho Vacation Rental´s are located in San Francisco (San Pancho) Riviera Nayarit, Mexico (25 miles North of Puerto Vallarta and a few miles north of Punta Mita, Litibu and five minutes from the famous surfing village of Sayulita. Just past San Pancho are Los De Marcos and La Penita. We are just a few minutes walk from one of the most beautiful beaches on the Riviera Nayarit Coast.

Enter into a private tranquil courtyard, where you are taken back to the Hacienda times of old Mexico to five beautiful rentals. They surround a beautiful lush tropical garden courtyard and large pool.

Our rentals kitchens are open to the tropical courtyard and have blinds for privacy. The large bedrooms and nice size bathrooms all have Air Conditioning and ceiling fans.

Our grounds are safe and very private with keyed entry. Each rental is fully equipped with all the amenities that you will need to enjoy your stay in paradise. Restaurants and everything you might need are minutes away. Roberto´s Bungalows would be perfect for private parties and small weddings.

Sit and chill by the pool in the tropical garden

Time to relax and leave your troubles behind….
