san sebastian del oeste, Jal.

Formerly the town was known as Real de San Sebastián and later San Sebastián and since 1983, San Sebastián del Oeste is a village made up of ancient haciendas and century-old homes that have aged gracefully along with the surrounding mines and fields, filled with a valuable legacy of tradition and history.


In its glorious past, it was a prosperous and self-sustaining silver mining town with over four times the population it has now.


You can reach San Sebastian by air and you'll arrive at the small airstrip located just outside the town, which allows daily service from Puerto Vallarta. On the way, you'll enjoy impressive views of the hills and forests in the Sierra Madre.
