Upcoming Broadcasts

World Footprints travels to Jalisco, Mexico where we'll be met by dolphins, pirates and Jose Cuervo. Jalisco is the seventh largest state of the 32 states in Mexico. It is rich in history and considered to be Mexico since many of the cultural characteristics of the country (Mariachis, the sombrero, Mexican Hat Dance, tequila) originated in Jalisco. While touring the state we enjoyed a playful swin with dolphins at the Dolphin Discovery in Puerto Vallarta and spoke to a resident veteranarian about how Dolphin Discovery is at the forefront of marine life conservation. World Footprints also set sail aboard a replica of the Santa Maria as we went off the beaten path with pirates to a private island to enjoy the natural beauty of the area. Our trip to Jalisco concluded in the World Hertitage Site of Tequila where we experienced the harvesting of the blue agave plant that is used to make tequila. We also followed the agave to the Jose Cuervo distillery to see how tequila is produced. Of course, we sampled a number of fine tequila throughout the trip--for research purposes.
