San Sebastien: An Authentic Mountain Hideaway
If you haven’t heard about San Sebastián yet, it probably won’t be long — its remote location and historic appeal have made it the Mexican media’s new darling destination. Originally discovered in the late 1500s and settled in 1603, the town peaked as a center of mining operations, swelling to a population of over 30,000 by the mid-1800s. Today, with roughly 600 year-round residents, San Sebastián retains all the charm of a village locked in time, with an old church, a coffee plantation, an underground tunnel system — and wholly without a T-shirt shop.

Getting There — By car, it’s a 2 1/2-hour drive up the Sierra Madre from Puerto Vallarta on an improved road, but it can be difficult during the summer rainy season, when the road washes out frequently. Vallarta Adventures (tel. 888/303-2653 in the U.S., or 322/297-1212, ext. 3; runs a daily plane service for half-day tours and can occasionally accommodate overnight visitors. The small private airport can arrange flights.

Where to Stay — There are two places to stay in San Sebastián. The first is the very basic El Pabellón de San Sebastián, which faces the town square. Its nine simply furnished rooms surround a central patio. Don’t expect extras here; rates run $50 (£28) per double. The town’s central phone lines handle reservations — you call (tel. 322/297-0200) and leave a message or send a fax, and hopefully the hotel will receive it. Except on holidays, there is generally room at this inn. No credit cards.
A more enjoyable option is the stately Hacienda Jalisco (tel. 322/222-9638;, built in 1850 and once the center of mining operations in town. The beautifully landscaped, rambling old hacienda is near the airstrip, a 15-minute walk from town. Proprietor Bud Acord has welcomed John Huston, Liz Taylor, Richard Burton, Peter O’Toole, and a cast of local characters over the years.

The five extra-clean rooms have wood floors, rustic furnishings and antiques, and working fireplaces; some are decorated with pre-Columbian reproductions. The ample bathrooms are beautifully tiled and have skylights. Hammocks grace the upstairs terrace, while a sort-of museum on the lower level attests to the celebrity guests and importance the hacienda has enjoyed over the years. Because of its remote location, all meals are included., Group rates and discounts for longer stays are available. Guided horseback, walking, or mine tours can be arranged through the Hacienda.

Puerto Vallarta is an increasingly popular golf destination; five courses have opened in the past 4 years, bringing the total in the region to nine. The Joe Finger-designed private course at the Marina Vallarta Golf Club (tel. 322/221-0073) is an 18-hole, par-74 course that winds through the Marina Vallarta peninsula and affords ocean views. It’s for members only, but most luxury hotels in Puerto Vallarta have memberships for their guests.
