    What to Expect
    Your tour begins with hotel pickup at 9:30am, when you’ll board an air-conditioned vehicle destined for Malpica, a small artisan community famed for its oven-baked bread and colorful tiles.

    After a brief stop here, you’ll proceed to the town of Concordia, founded in the 16th century by Spanish conquistador, Francisco de Ibarra. Learn about local industry, which includes silver and gold mining, and visit architectural highlights such as the pink San Sebastian Temple and City Hall.

    Your next stop is Copala, a village cradled by the scenic Sierra Madre mountains. Wander the cobbled streets and admire red-roofed houses adorned with flowers.

    Following a Mexican lunch (own expense), you’ll visit the town’s main plaza and then be transferred back to your Mazatlan hotel.

    I highly recommend this tour. This is an excellent way to get out of the highly tourist areas and visit the smaller communities in the mountains. If you are on a Cruise ship, this is THE tour to do. Over the past 20 years I...More

    Views were wonderful. Guide told us about the trees/flowers and myths. Churches were special. Each village has a specialty to enjoy. You pick what you want to do at your own pace. Van was clean and roomy with a safe driver. A must do.
