During this intimate guided tour from Puerto Vallarta, head to San Sebastian del Oeste to explore the scenic 17th-century mining town, founded by silver-seekers under Spanish rule. The group is capped at 15 people guaranteeing an intimate visit, as you wander through colonial churches, colorful public squares, and a local silversmith shop. Then, head to a local tequila factory to taste different regional varieties of the agave-based spirit. You’ll also have the chance to visit the region’s oldest organic coffee factory and sample homemade brews made from local beans. Your culturally enriching visit ends with a leisurely buffet meal at a popular local restaurant, with regional delicacies representing the flavors of the Mexican mountains.
