What You Can Expect

San Sebastian Tour from Puerto Vallarta

San Sebastian by Land Tour from Puerto Vallarta

Over the years, the town's population fluctuated wildly as gold and silver were mined intermittently between the 1600s and the 1930s. Today, although the "gold fever" has subsided and the people afflicted by it have long since departed, this beautiful mountain village of 600 residents retains its colonial heritage as an outstanding example of the traditional ways of living and working in a remote Mexican village. In addition to the traditional corn and cattle raising procedures, local folks still cultivate coffee and agave on the mountainside.

It is a joy to wander around in this very peaceful town, which has changed so little in hundreds of years. With an 18th century church dedicated to San Sebastián, a classic Porifian bandstand and a quaint cobblestone plaza lined by dignified white buildings, San Sebastián remains a living museum untouched by time.

Full with culture, history and amazing natural beauty, this truly is an experience difficult to surpass.
