San Sebastian del Oeste is a gem of a Mexican mining town that transports you to the past and tells a thousand and one stories. This magical village has fantastic colonial architecture, elegant cabins, orchards, organic coffee plantations, ruins of haciendas and mines, and excellent restaurants. Formerly called Real de San Sebastián and then San Sebastián, mining became the town’s principal activity during the colonial era; bringing the population to 20,000 inhabitants. After the Mexican Revolution, it was slowly abandoned due to the closure of its mines. Today, San Sebastian del Oeste has 600 inhabitants and has been known by its current name since 1983. The only way to reach this magical town is by car on the Highway 70 from Puerto Vallarta-Guadalajara- it is just one hour from the beautiful destination of Puerto Vallarta.

Located about 15 miles southwest of Puerto Vallarta and secluded in a remote cove between the Pacific Ocean and the Sierra Madre mountains, Yelapa is an ideal getaway for any intrepid adventurer exploring the state of Jalisco. Its remote location makes it extremely popular among travelers looking to escape the hustle and bustle of Puerto Vallarta, and its picturesque jungle landscapes and cascading waterfalls make it a hit among hikers. If you happen to be anywhere in the region, this stunning locale is not to be missed. A Quick History of Yelapa The name “Yelapa” is believed to derive from an old Native American word meaning “where two rivers meet the sea.” This seaside town is a quiet fishing village that makes up one of the lushest bioregions in the world. The community was founded by four families about 150 years ago. Today, it remains one of the few communities on Earth that’s still owned, inhabited, and maintained by the original residents and their descendants. Only about 1,500 people call Yelapa home, and it remains unsullied. There are no roads, no cars, and no ATMs, and infrastructure is minimal. It’s like a beach community frozen in time, and that’s exactly what makes it so appealing. Contact Vallarta adventures to book an excursion. Vallarta Adventures' Office at Marina Vallarta.
