All aboard the Jose Cuervo Express, the all-you-can-drink tequila train in Mexico

Regular trains are boring.

You’re stuck in a cramped seat, the dining car is far away (or doesn’t exist) and it’s frowned upon to down shots of tequila.

And that’s all we want from life; a train where getting drunk on a tasty golden liquid is acceptable, while we travel through a Mexican landscape filled with the very plants it was made from (blue agave).

Thankfully, such an experience exists – all aboard the Jose Cuervo Express, the all-you-can-drink tequila train.

There are three luxurious classes to choose from, such as Express, Premium and Premium Plus, but all wagons are decked out in a traditional design with wood-panel walls and with an air of old school glamour.

The most expensive option includes not only copious amounts of Tradicional and Jose Cuervo Especial tequila, but also a tasting with a tequila expert, a ‘Maestro Tequilero’ and a tour of the Jose Cuervo distillery, La Rojena (one of the oldest of its kind in the area).

And you also get to see a Mexican show when you arrive at your destination – Tequila.

It’s a real place, a small town also known as Santiago de Tequila in Jalisco, Mexico.

Once there, you can also swing by the Margarita Bar for (another) drink or Plaza Juan Soriano to view ancient sculptures.

Prices for the express train experience start from just £84 for adults and £74 for children (no tequila for the little ones though).
