Escape Mazatlan’s bustle in favor of the rustic charm of Concordia and Copalia, colonial towns cradled by the Sierra Madre Mountains, on a 5-hour tour from Mazatlan. Visit 16th-century stone temples, admire colonial architecture, and observe artisan crafts such as bread- and tile-making. Refreshments and hotel pickup and drop-off in Mazatlan are included on this small-group tour, limited to 15 people.
Your tour begins with hotel pickup at 9:30am, when you’ll board an air-conditioned vehicle destined for Malpica, a small artisan community famed for its oven-baked bread and colorful tiles.
After a brief stop here, you’ll proceed to the town of Concordia, founded in the 16th century by Spanish conquistador, Francisco de Ibarra. Learn about local industry, which includes silver and gold mining, and visit architectural highlights such as the pink San Sebastian Temple and City Hall.
Your next stop is Copala, a village cradled by the scenic Sierra Madre mountains. Wander the cobbled streets and admire red-roofed houses adorned with flowers.
Following a Mexican lunch (own expense), you’ll visit the town’s main plaza and then be transferred back to your Mazatlan hotel.
