Full description
Spend a day in the ‘boots’ of a traditional Mexican Charro and be part of a Charreada (rodeo) on a guided tour where you will learn why the Charro is a UNESCO recognized identity of  Mexican culture.

Get picked up and begin your tour with a bit of city history as you drive through historic neighborhoods that were very important at the beginning of Charrería history. 

Arrive at the Lienzo, a type of cowboy arena, where a Charro will welcome you and give you an introduction to the origins of the Mexican Charro in the arena’s museum. 

See the fantastic collection of different accessories and traditional costumes that Charros use every Sunday in the Charreada, which is a competitive event similar to a rodeo.

Get a lesson on how to use the lasso’s used by the Charros and learn the differences between a Mexican lasso and those used in other cultures in the world.

Brush and saddle up the horses and see how they are chosen for the parade that begins the Charrería. If possible, ride a horse along with other Charros so you can be part of this exciting parade.

Take part in some traditional tasks as your Charro guide explains each of the different activities that take place during a Charreria.

Celebrate the end of this unique cultural experience alongside your new Charro friends drinking some tequila and listening to the sounds of mariachi guitars.
