The mountain towns of Talpa and Mascota, Mexico are some of the most beautiful and culturally significant locations near Puerto Vallarta. These Pueblos Magicos (“magical villages”) are must-sees for travelers looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of Vallarta and experience Mexico’s rich cultural history firsthand. On our Talpa & Mascota Tour here at Vallarta Adventures, we take you on a comprehensive tour of these beautiful mining towns, giving you the opportunity to get up close and personal with still-preserved pieces of Mexico’s colonial past.

Our tour begins with a scenic ride in luxury transportation from Puerto Vallarta through the Sierra Madre mountains.

We stop at each of the town’s most significant landmarks, giving you in-depth information and stories from Talpa and Mascota’s centuries-old histories.

Marvel at Mascota

Our first stop is Mascota, Mexico: a town of only 10,000 people, yet one that’s brimming with historic landmarks and rich regional culture.
