San Sebastian by bus
Nestled in the heart of the Sierra Madre Mountains, it is a joy to wander around in this very peaceful town, which has changed so little in hundreds of years.
With a quaint cobblestone plaza lined by dignified white buildings, a classic Porfirian bandstand, an 18th century church dedicated to San Sebastian, and the 150 year old Hacienda Jalisco, San Sebastian is a living museum untouched by time, and an experience that is difficult to surpass.

Our San Sebastian Land Expedition begins with a drive in an air-conditioned bus from Puerto Vallarta to the 17th century mining town of San Sebastián. As the road weaves through the mountains, you'll enjoy fantastic scenery and typical scenes of rural Mexican life, making the journey both breathtaking and relaxing.
The road from Puerto Vallarta comes in on the west side of this historic mining town. Originally settled in 1605, San Sebastián reached its peak of prosperity in the 1700s, when over 30,000 people populated the area.
Over the years, the town's population fluctuated wildly as gold and silver were mined intermittently between the 1600's and the 1930's.
Roundtrip transportation aboard air conditioned bus, English speaking tour guide, lunch and entrance fees.
