When drunken nights happen in Mexico, instead of blaming it on the Cuervo you might be saying "blame it on the CasaMagna Marriott." That's because the CasaMagna Marriott Puerto Vallarta Resort and Spa produces their own propriety brand of tequila.

Yes, you read right. There's a CasaMagna brand of tequila made from the agave azul harvested on property. And the hotel has created a whole experience around it.

Tequila lovers (not the Tila kind), enthusiasts, connossieurs or just heavy margarita drinkers might want to consider skipping on down here for the "Secretos de la Familia" program.

The resort has a Tequila Experto (expert) on staff, certified by the Tequila Regulatory Council of Mexico (TRC). The Tequila Expert conducts tasting classes to increase guest awareness of the new found popularity of tequila. More than 117 different "by the glass" tequila options are maintained in the CasaMagna Marriott Puerto Vallarta Resort Tequila Vault for use in all the resort's food and beverage outlets.

Guests can also sit in on weekly tasting classes and get a brief history of the tequila from the Tequila Expert.

Naturally, the hotel has a packaged centered around their tequila called the Tequila Reposado package. For $263 a night, you get deluxe accommodations in an ocean view room for two, complimentary breakfast buffet for two at the resort's La Estancia restaurant, tasting of three of the resort's tequilas with a Tequila Expert and a 750 ml complimentary bottle of tequila to take home.
