This was a charming quaint town. I was surprised that there was nothing to buy there. I was hoping to see some home made items.
The drive was long, the tour guides were very pleasant.

정확한 픽업시간에 도착한 안락한 버스를 타고, 친절하고 유쾌한 가이드 설명과 함께 여행을 출발했습니다. 전통 방식을 고수하는 떼낄라 농가와 농약을 전혀 사용하지 않는 커피농장을 둘러본 후 산 세바스티안 마을에서 점심식사를 했습니다. 점심식사 후에는 가이드의 역사 설명과 함께 마을을 천천히 걸으며 둘러보았습니다. 가이드의 재미있는 안내 덕분에 더욱 즐거운 여행이었습니다.

The tour was very good and interesting. Just one minor detail and that is I think we don't need to stop for watermelon. Tour guide Jorge was very knowledgeable.

Good guide. Nice lunch at authentic local restaurant. Interesting history. Thought the walk through town a bit long and hard until I saw a local lady walking the cobblestones in heels! Would have liked a bit more info on local agriculture. We're rural folk. Worth the price.

It took a while to find the van to pick us up when we disembarked from our cruise ship, but a little patience paid off. Then we were off on some paved and some dirt roads some distance from Puerto Vallarta. Along the way, our guide gave us an exhaustive but not exhausting history of the origins of the native Indians both in North and South Americas. Some of it appeared to be apocryphal, but it was interesting. Then we descended upon a small tequila distillery that provided us with a lesson on making tequila from the blue agave as well as tequila tastings. We were surprised that so many great-tasting tequilas are made from combinations of tequila with chocolate and other ingredients. My wife, Denise, was so taken with them that we bought our full duty-free liquor allotment right there. With clinking bottles in hand, we headed for San Sebastian del Oeste, a historically important mining town that reached its zenith long ago, when gold and silver were available from the mines. Today, it is a sleepy but pleasant small town that gives you the flavor of the non-touristy parts of Mexico. We had lunch at a nice restaurant that more than satisfied our hunger pangs. The tour of the city included some vaguely historical sites, but most prominently the San Sebastian church and the central square. The drive back was uneventful except for numerous delays because of road construction. Had we been staying at a hotel in Puerto Vallarta this would not have been important. Instead, however, we were on the Norwegian Jewel cruise ship. At 5:15 p.m. we were still entering Puerto Vallarta. The ship's gangways closed at 5:30 p.m. Adrenalin started flowing quickly. What do you do when you miss your ship? Wave goodbye? Well, fortunately, we did not have to find out as we made it to the ship only two minutes late. Perhaps the Captain saw us racing for the gangway. Perhaps not. But no sooner had we boarded than the ship started unmooring and heading off into the sunset. It made for some fine story telling aboard the ship, but this level of excitement was not what we had planned. All in all, however, it was a very pleasant day.
