Itinerary

DAY 1 - PUERTO VALLARTA

Welcome to Puerta Vallarta - and what a place to kick off our adventure!  One of the most popular beach towns in Mexico, it's easy to see why this place is known as the 'Mexican Riviera'. Spa, pool, relax, repeat are all high on the agenda today. You’ll be thinking "this is the life" - and that's before we top it all off with a  beachfront dinner, with the water and twinkling lights setting an unforgettable scene. We're best friends already, and it's only day one. What will tomorrow have in store?

INCLUDED: Beachfront Dinner in Puerto Vallarta

DAY 2 - PUERTO VALLARTA
Today you’re free as a bird and that means exploring as much or as little of Puerto Vallarta as you like. Punta Mita is known for perfect beginner waves if surfing along a secluded bay is your thing; if not, then there are plenty of other activities on offer, including a ride on a pirate ship cruise compete with an acrobatic performance and fireworks. What else? Where to begin? Today you could find yourself speeding through the jungle on a zipline or spending the day away at the quaint coastal town of Sayulita. And for those keen to kick it right in downtown Puerto Vallarta, head to some beachside watering holes for drinks, giant lobster feasting, swims and people watching. It's a hard life. And we're just getting started.
DAY 3 - PUERTO VALLARTA TO GUADALAJARA VIA TEQUILA
Tequila - Looking for even more cultural immersion? There's nothing more Mexican than tequila, so why not head to a genuine distillery where you can learn how this fiery spirit is made and taste some for yourself. And if that's put you in the fiesta mood, you're in the right place.  While you stroll around the streets you'll get a feel for the old and new world architecture that this place is known for - as well as some seriously electric nightlife.

Guadalajara - It's time to learn about the city known as the 'Pearl of the West', Guadalajara, with its four main squares and glorious cathedral. Then you could go and find a spot to watch one of the city's famous live Mariachi bands do its thing.

INCLUDED EXPERIENCES: Experience Ceboruco and the panoramic pictures | Visit a Tequila distillery with tasting in Guadalajara

DAY 4 - GUADALAJARA TO GUANAJUATO
Today Guadalajara reveals itself in a different way when you cruise up to see the city from another vantage point at, Ceboruco – a now inactive volcano. It last erupted from 1870-1875 and is a fabulous place to gain a panoramic perspective.

Guanajuato - Next up you'll hit the old colonial city of Guanajuato where you will learn about the history of the famous silver mining town and how the economy has shaped much of its culture. Heavy on the Spanish influence, this UNESCO World Heritage city will transport you to another time and get lost for hours in its quaint cobblestone alleyways. Uncover the tales of the town, its famous 'Mummies' and its most famous lovers at the 'Alley of Kisses'. Next up, the Hidalgo Market, designed by Gustave Eiffel himself.

INCLUDED EXPERIENCES Visit Hospicio Cabañas | Guided City Tour of Guadalajara
