Welcome to San Sebastian del Oeste: A Journey to Mexican Authenticity

Hello adventurers! I'm thrilled to take you on a journey to discover the charms of San Sebastian del Oeste, a hidden gem in the majestic mountains of Jalisco, Mexico. This picturesque colonial town, with its cobblestone streets and rich history, is a haven of Mexican authenticity awaiting our exploration.

On this tour, we’ll delve into the historical roots of San Sebastian and its crucial role in the foundation of Puerto Vallarta. From the comfort of an air-conditioned car, we’ll embark on a approximately one and a half-hour journey from Puerto Vallarta to this historically rich corner.

From the moment we meet at 8 in the morning, our journey begins at the iconic La Estancia Bridge, providing us with a spectacular panoramic view. Here, we’ll indulge in delicious “empanadas” and coffee while soaking in the natural beauty around us. Let’s not forget to capture those moments!

As we continue our path, we’ll venture into fields of blue agave, the raw material for raicilla, a traditional regional beverage with intense flavors that will captivate you. Get ready; it’s stronger than tequila!

Upon arriving in San Sebastian around 9:30 am, we’ll immerse ourselves in an authentic Mexican breakfast with dishes like chilaquiles, accompanied by organic coffee or orange juice. But that’s not all, as fascinating places await us, such as the Conchita Encarnacion Museum, the mysterious Dungeon, and the imposing Church. Don’t forget to explore local jewelry and uncover the secrets behind coffee making.

This tour, designed exclusively for you, can accommodate from 1 to 4 people, ensuring a comfortable and safe journey. So, buckle up and get ready to immerse yourself in the authentic experience of San Sebastian del Oeste, where history, culture, and natural beauty come together to create an unforgettable memory.
