From the mining tradition of San Sebastián del Oeste, on the banks of the Sierra Madre Occidental and the Bay of Banderas lies this "Magical Town" which keeps memories of grandeur and bonanza of not very distant times and retains its beauty of youth with elegance and simplicity.


TAKE A RIDE AMONG RIVERS AND STREAMS


Enjoy the small town of few inhabitants that lies in the middle of a glen among green mountains and a river that slides through the streets. Feel its humid climate and be dazzled by its constant rain that, because of its proximity to the sea, maintains natural gardens in constant flowering.


KNOW THE ESTATES OPEN TO THE SUN


On reaching the main square, you can admire its traditional architecture and its open estates with fresh porches of white walls and high windows, round columns portals, and wooden roof, and old houses which have stories of their mining past in wet streets with a smell of coffee. 


LIVE THE AROMAS AND GREENERY LABYRINTH


Walk its walkways and its stone fences upholstered with ferns and moss flanking orchards with a sweet aroma of guava, peach, orange, and lemon, among estates embedded in woody vegetation. Let yourself be led along its narrow roads crossing streams and rivers across stone bridges in an eternal garden of fragrances that its villagers and nature carefully protect.
To celebrate the visit, taste a raicilla, distilled from maguey that is elaborated in an artisan way in small taverns of the locality.
