Make a self catering villa or holiday rental at Jalisco on the Mexican Riviera your home away from home

Jalisco is a region of the Mexican Riviera to the southwest of the city of Guadalajara in central Mexico. The area covers 80,137 square km and has a population of over 6 million. It includes some extensive mountain ranges such as the Sierra Madre Occidental with its high plateaux and the Tequila volcano. Jalisco is best known as the birthplace of the tequila spirit and the Mexican hat dance. The main tourist destination in Jalisco is Puerta Vallarta with its gorgeous beaches.

Things to Do at Jalisco, Mexico Outdoor Sports

There is no shortage of things to do from your villa in Jalisco. Sports fishing, boat trips, rock climbing and mountain biking are popular activities, and there is excellent hiking in the mountains.

Beaches

Puerta Vallarta is known for its extensive golden sands and gentle waves. The main beaches are Shrimp Beach, High Waves Beach (although they are not!) and the Beach of the Dead. They are perfect for walking and sunbathing, eating at one of the bars along the beach or enjoying some of the local watersports such as windsurfing. The Mouth of Tomatoes Beach is more rocky and does have crocodiles, so it is not so well frequented.

See a Rodeo

Rodeos, or charros as they are known, include a host of challenges and entertainment such as calf-roping, riding unbroken steers and other riding events by local cowboys. It is an exciting family attraction and the prize-money is keenly contended.

Places to Visit Near Jalisco, Mexico Guadalajara

Guadalajara is known as the Pearl of the West with beautiful historic architecture in the Downtown area. The Plaza de Armas is the main square with gardens and an ironwork structure brought from Paris in the 19th century. The Cathedral and the Rotunda are the main landmarks. Guadalajara is also known for its Mariachi bands which play at local festivals.

Puerto Vallarta

Apart from the beach, Puerta Vallarta is known for Los Arcos, where birds and marine life can be spotted. The Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe is a parish church in the city which is worth exploring. The two landmark rocks along the beach are known as the Pulpit and the Font. A stroll along the paved Malecon takes visitors past a collection of contemporary sculptures.
