    San Sebastian del Oeste
    Stop: 3 hours
    Marvel at this beautiful remote village and the mountains carpeted in dense tropical vegetation. To arrive in San Sebastian del Oeste is to take a step back in time. This antiquated town dates back to 1605 and was made famous by its plentiful silver mines. Today, with only 600 inhabitants, there are scattered examples of its traditional colonial architecture merging with a colorful village square, quaint cobblestone roads, passing mules and a sleepy way of life far removed from the rest of the world. Your day includes a walking tour of the 18th century church, a silversmith workshop and an organic coffee farm. This expedition is not for the average tourist but for a traveler who seeks to find the real Mexico.

What to Expect
Meet your guide at a convenient central location in Puerto Vallarta to start your tour. Board a comfortable vehicle and journey into the heart of Mexico’s Sierra Madre mountains to arrive at the small village and former mining town of San Sebastian. Travel back in time as you wander the cobblestone streets of San Sebastian and see how little it has changed in hundreds of years. See remnants of its mining past and admire its well-preserved colonial architecture. Visit an 18th-century church, a classic Porifian bandstand, and a quaint plaza lined with whitewashed buildings. Learn about life in a rural Mexican village and see traditional methods of growing corn, raising cattle, and cultivating coffee and agave on the mountainside. Stop for lunch, and then travel back along scenic mountain roads to end your tour in Puerto Vallarta.

The tour guide was great! We learned a lot about the region and the history just in our drive up the mountain. It was great to be able to experience the "real Mexico" and get away from the tourist areas around PV. I had a 4-year-old and 6-year-old on the tour, and while it

Our tour guide Juan Carlos was excellent! The tequila distillery visit was the first stop, but I didn’t mind going tequila tasting at 11 AM! The distillery is located in the most picturesque place and the maker is very detailed in explaining his process into making the tequila.
