Go back in time as we visit these two "pueblos" nestled inland in the mountains behind Puerto Vallarta. Mascota, with a population of 10000 people is charming as well as rich in history. The church, which was started in the late 1700's took over 100 years to complete. Known for raicilla (a local moonshine) handmade candy, prized horses, the Mascota Casa de Cultura Museum and "The Fred Flint stone Home". Talpa de Allende is known for it's pilgrimages to the stately church that shelters the beloved virgin, Rosario de Talpa, majestic views and kind inhabitants welcoming you to their village. This is a great tour for all ages and anyone interested in seeing a different side of Mexico than just the tourist areas.
