At the age of 21, Don Gustavo Romero made his first trip from the city of Guadalajara, Jalisco, to the beautiful Caribbean south east of Mexico. When there was still no Cancun he traveled by land until he reached Playa del Carmen, where he sailed to the country’s largest inhabited island.
With the help of the island residents, Don Gustavo bought 11 acres where he planted the seeds of his dream. His mission was to faithfully recount the history and method of production of our national drink, Tequila. And so he set out on a large-scale investigation, the fruits of which led to a clear plan.
The project started with the building of a Jalisco style hacienda and 2,000 agave cactus plants were brought from the town of Tequila in Jalisco in order to recreate the atmosphere of that region. It little while later HA Hacienda Antigua opened its doors to the public
