    What to Expect
    Start your full-day tour with hotel pickup by air-conditioned vehicle and be whisked away from Puerto Vallarta. After a traditional Mexican breakfast, you will have the opportunity to experience two Jalisco destinations in one day.

    First, head to Mascota for a guided walking tour. Stroll its cobbled streets and visit the main attractions of the Magical Town, which is surrounded by thick forests of pine and oak. You will see the main square, the unfinished Temple of the Precious Blood (Templo de la Preciosa Sangre), the Archaeological Museum within the Culture Center, and the Church of Our Lady of Sorrows.

    Afterward, you're accompanied to the Guachimontones archaeological zone. Its main ceremonial center includes several buildings with a distinctive architectural style, including several staggered conical structures surrounded by circular patios, two ball courts, an amphitheater, and some terraces and smaller buildings.

    Finish with return transport to Puerto Vallarta or Riviera Nayarit and drop-off at your accommodation.

    This is a long drive winding through the mountains. It took us 14 hours even though our guide rushed us through the sites. The guide did not have any preplanned stop for lunch and we eventually did find an open restaurant. There were no snacks...More
