Once one of the most important mining towns from the 1600's, San Sebastian del Oeste is now a quiet mountain Village (4800 ft above sea level) about one and a half hour away from Puerto Vallarta. Nominated as world Heritage site by UNESCO, San Sebastian is truly an unspoiled place to explore. We'll visit a coffee plantation and Hacienda, Main Plaza and other main highlights of the village. We will have lunch (not included) at an excellent local restaurant where you will be able to try real, traditional Mexican food.
The market in La Peñita is really a must! One of the biggest Tianguis (market) in the area. At San Pancho, the Entre Amigos Project is great to realiz how much we can do with some creativity and love. And the just relax and have lunch at Sayulita!
One of the highlights of the surroundings of Puerto Vallarta without a doubt are the botanical gardens. On this tour we will take you there and show you this treasure. After this visit in the morning, we will take you to the town of El Tuito. El Tuito is still a non touristic village where you can see how people really live in the countryside.
We will pick you up at your hotel or at the Cruise Ship Pier and start our adventure exploring the highlights of Puerto Vallarta. We begin in our beautiful downtown area, with a stroll along the Malecon, a visit to our main Church; Our Lady of Guadalupe and the plaza. Next we will visit the “romantic zone” of Vallarta and the famous Los Muertos beach, to Conchas Chinas, our “Beverly Hills”, then on the way to Los Arcos where we will stop for photos and amazing views of the Bay. Next stop is in Mismaloya where the famous movie, “Night of the Iguana” was filmed and put Puerto Vallarta on the map. We will stop at a nice restaurant for lunch (lunch and drinks not included in price) and visit a Tequila learning facility to learn how tequila is made and taste the nectar of the gods!
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.
Come and join us to see this unique part of Jalisco. A memorable journey where we also stop at the village of Mascota. This tour is for those interested in the Pre-Colombian Cultures of Mexico.
On the way to San Blas we'll explore the beautiful scenery, stop at a fruit and candy stand and make our way to La Tovara for a scenic tour of the sanctuary. Here we'll see amazing wildlife, such as birds, turtles, crocodiles and amazing flora and fauna. Next we'll go to a crocodile farm, have a drink at a jungle restaurant and then visit a Spanish Fort with a magnificent view of San Blas and the Pacific Ocean, then lunch on a great beach.
Upon request of many people we now offer a tour to Tequila, Jalisco. This tour is for the Tequila Experts (to be) only, as during this tour you will see the real process. Unlike the many small Tequila Factories in the Puerto Vallarta area, this is a visit to a real distillery, the Tequila Cofradia distillery in the town of Tequila, Jalisco.
