Join us for an expedition
North of Puerto Vallarta, deep into the state
of Nayarit, the mystical place that bore the
missionaries that settled San Francisco and
San Diego in the state of California.
We'll pass several villages, and miles of thick,
green tropical jungle, as we reach the town
of Rincon de Guayabitos, where we'll
enjoy breakfast at a local restaurant.
Continuing on our quest,
we'll head Northeast, into the majestic Sierra
Madre mountain range, climbing to 3,000 feet
above sea level, where we'll find the historic
and majestic city of Compostela.
Passing by the Puga (sugar factory),
we'll venture all the way to the small Huichol
Indian village of Nueva Valey, populated
by 130 natives. Here, the locals will
introduce us to their native culture with a
welcome ceremony, done by the high-ranking member
of the community, Marakame.
We'll visit their Cali-Huey
(Temple), while they will present us with their
splendid music and dance, and you'll have the
opportunity to take photographs of their rituals
and traditional costumes, and buy highly sought-after
authentic Huichol handcrafts.
After this fascinating encounter, we'll head
back to the capital city of Tepic, where we'll
eat a delicious 3-course Mexican Lunch at a
stylish local hotel restaurant. Then it's
back to Puerto Vallarta, the end of a truly
introspective look at the native cultures of
the Huicholes of Nayarit.
This tour makes a great shore excursion if
your ship's schedule allows. It might be too
long for some cruise ship schedules.
