Map of Mexico, places to visit between Mazatlan & Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta
Pueblos Mágicos on the slow bus to Guadalajara from Puerto Vallarta (or visa versa)

These little ‘Magic Towns’ are worth visiting. There are only three buses per day on this route so if you’re taking the bus you would probably want to stay in one of them. You can also do them as day trips from Puerto Vallarta but it’s expensive (~$100 pp) and you end up spending way too much time on the road. Another alternative would be to rent a car and tour around. Al’s choice of a place to stay would be San Sebastian at Los Arcos de Sol. I am undecided – they were all marvellous!
