Guadalajara and Puerto Vallarta are our destinations for this Christmas themed, six-night, seven-day vacation and cultural experience. Both destinations are in the state of Jalisco and are cultural bookends for our travels with the rich historic traditions of Guadalajara on one end and the relaxed sea-side experience of Puerto Vallarta on the other with much to see and enjoy in between!

Guadalajara is the Pearl of the West and founded in 1542 as part of New Spain. It’s Mexico’s second largest city and a bustling metropolis that is alive with activity throughout its streets, parks, and plazas. Historical and preserved 16th century buildings, churches and monuments provide visitors a view of Mexico’s colonial past and rich traditions. Guadalajara offers visitors interested in culture experiences architectural gems, significant works of art, mesmerizing displays of dance and music as well as shopping opportunities from the traditional to the most avant-garde that are sure to make this year’s holiday gift exchange one of the most memorable among family and friends.


Puerto Vallarta is a sea-side city that contrasts Guadalajara with its more relaxed ambiance and opportunity for travelers to unwind. A destination in its own right, Puerto Vallarta exudes a small city feel and showcases beautiful Mexican beaches, architecture and gardens. Among the most notable people in the city’s past were Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton who both owned homes there.
