With pine trees at about 2,000 ft., the air is cooler than at the
beach and in winter can get quite cold at night. Not a large town, population
but clean and growing. They have done some major work on the church
. Last time I was there they were installing public bathrooms under the Plaza.
There are now far more restaurants
that are quite economical.
A new entrance road now from route 200 and a lot more restaurants, becoming quite a busy town, but still few tourists.
The bus from Vallarta, with upholstered seats - not like our city busses, takes about 55 min. and costs 28 pesos one
way. This is definitely one of the most economical side trips you can take.
leaves from V. Carranza, on the corner of Aguacate. Last bus back is at 6pm ! See
