What to Expect on the Santa Fe Margarita Trail

The Santa Fe Margarita Trail is one of our favorite ways to experience all of the different signature margaritas in Santa Fe. Begin by purchasing a Santa Fe Margarita Trail Passport for $3. You can buy it at one of the Santa Fe Visitors’ Centers or at any one of the 31 participating restaurants. You can also download the Santa Fe Margarita Trail Passport App on both Apple and Android platforms. You do have to purchase the paid version in order to collect stamps, but it’s only $3.99 and well worth it! In the app, you can track where you’ve been and see the stamps you’ve gathered and receive a $1 off coupon for each margarita. You can choose to collect your stamps in the app or the passport book, but you can’t do both.

How Does the Santa Fe Margarita Trail Work?

On your Margarita Trail Passport App, you can see all of the different restaurants participating in this fun experience! Pick one that sounds great to you, head to the restaurant, then order their signature margarita. Be sure to let your server know you are participating in the Margarita Trail. They will give you a “stamp” in your passport app or book. There is a limit of two stamps per day.
