In 1991 Billy and Akaisha Kaderli retired at the age

We are continuing our trip through the Golden Triangle of Tequila-Making,
arriving in Jesus Maria. After a
couple of days visiting
(where we saw the boutique tequila distillery,
we were excited to visit El Pandillo.
El Pandillo is a family-run tequila
business with an interesting history. But first, we needed to find our
the day before to make reservations, so we didn't anticipate any problems.

When we called from
Atotonilco to make reservations,
we were told that there was no WiFi, but we could have a choice between
having a room with a TV or one without.
We were surprised to hear that there was
no WiFi, as it is as common as drinking water every country in which we
travel, Mexico included. But apparently... not this hotel.
No matter, and since it was the only
hotel in town, we took a room.
Our hotel room, no TV

Prices we were quoted for rooms were
250Pesos for a no TV room and 300Pesos for a room with a TV.

was as clean as your Grandma's house or maybe a finicky Aunt's.
HOT water in the shower with lots of
pressure, and no grimy "yuck-oh" surprises in the bathroom.
The front of Hotel Romsevi'l
Our hotel was walking distance to the
Plaza, and just around the corner was a restaurant where we ate several
meals. A stone's throw away was an OXXO (like a 7-11) where we could
purchase yogurt, drinking water and miscellaneous items.
The owner and all the employees were
polite and friendly, the place was quiet, and you just couldn't beat the
