Up behind Puerto Vallarta in the Sierra Madres Mountains are
old mining towns that are completely different from Puerto Vallarta.
At 4,300 ft. with pine trees, the air is crisp and clear, while
at night it can be quite cold.
Founded in 1605, San Sebastian del Oeste was one of the silver mining
centers of Mexico. At one time a provincial capital of 40,000 people,
you will find it strangely deserted with only about 1,200 people living
There are a couple of Hotels and the old Hacienda. You can get there,
and to other even more remote towns and villages, by bus. Or you can
go by private air conditioned vehicle for $50.00US per person, if you
can get 10 people together (it's a $500.00US min.), including your
guide, lunch is not included, but there are some nice restaurants to
choose from. Click Here
for more info.
