San Sebastian Tour from Puerto Vallarta
Discover the historic mining town of San Sebastian in just one day on a sightseeing excursion from Puerto Vallarta, ideal for first-time visitors. Travel into the heart of the Sierra Madre Mountains to explore this remote mountain village. See remnants of its mining past and learn about traditional methods of growing corn, raising cattle, and cultivating coffee. Plus, lunch and round-trip transport from Puerto Vallarta are included.
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.
