From May 13th to 15th, 2022, Puerto Vallarta will host the 5th edition of Damajuana · Festival de Raicilla, an ideal event to experience and taste raicilla, a distillate made by hand in the Jalisco region.

For starters, raicilla is a drink that may not be as popular as tequila or mezcal, but it has a growing following.

There are two types of raicilla that have distinctly different flavors due to the geographical region of origin and the agaves that are used for their production: Raicilla de la Costa, which is made from the Angustifolia How and Rhodacantha agaves; as well as the Raicilla de la Sierra, which is made with the Maximiliana, Inaequidens Koch and Valenciana agaves.

So, the Jalisco municipalities producing raicilla are Atengo, Chiquilistlán, Juchitlán, Tecolotlán, Tenamaxtlán, Puerto Vallarta, Cabo Corrientes, Tomatlán, Atenguillo, Ayutla, Cuautla, Guachinango, Mascota, Mixtlán, San Sebastián del Oeste and Talpa de Allende.

You can learn more about this elixir at the Damajuana · Festival de Raicilla, an event that will take place in front of the Vallarta Institute of Culture on the Rio Cuale Island.

This three-day cultural event will feature tastings, talks and documentary screenings, as well as live music and a tropical party.

“Vallarta Lifestyles is very helpful for someone who arrives for the first time to the destination, because through its content one can discover really nice places to visit. Besides, it is a guide for us as residents, because we know from a good source the new things we can do. People take the magazine and in one place they find hotels, restaurants, galleries, real estate and other featured services.”

“In a meeting that we had with the magazine’s founder, he told us about his dream of making a quality and luxury publication because he was convinced that Puerto Vallarta needed that. For that reason, we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles since its beginnings. These days, our brand is very well positioned thanks to the strategic distribution of the magazine, as it helps us reach more potential customers which is a great benefit for us.”

“We have been clients of Vallarta Lifestyles since 1999, the year in which we arrived to this destination. Back then, it was the only publication where you could really do local marketing. These days, in spite of the arrival of new technologies, we keep advertising, because it is a really important complement for our marketing strategy.”
