Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - With summer temperatures in Puerto Vallarta rising, a weekend getaway to a cooler climate can be very appealing. And, for those that own a home here, great weekend escapes are just a quick journey away. One favorite is the charming town of San Sebastian del Oeste, and a scenic 1 hour and 45-minute drive will take you there.
And what a difference a less than two hour trip can make! Leaving our beautiful tropical coastline of palm trees and beaches behind, you'll travel up into the Sierra Madre mountains, to a totally different topography of pine trees and ranch land – and a distinctively cooler and less humid climate.
Designated a "Magic Town" by the Mexican government, San Sebastian is a lovely little village of less than 6000 inhabitants. Stroll the streets and admire the pretty colonial-style architecture, including the Church of Saint Sebastian which dates back to 1608, and stop for lunch in one of the town's many excellent restaurants, El Fortin de San Sebastian and Montebello Restaurant being two of particular note.
It is a wonderful, peaceful getaway that offers an entirely different vibe, so much so that many Puerto Vallarta homeowners purchase a weekend escape in this charming mountain village.
