Swim with Dolphins · Piers & Boardwalks · Zipline
Western Mexico's state of Jalisco features a long Pacific coastline dotted with modern resorts, so it doesn't surprise that much of the region's income comes from the tourism sector. Arguably the most popular place to visit in Jalisco is Puerto Vallarta, drawing both international and domestic visitors with its beaches and proximity to pristine wilderness areas. The country's cultural center, Jalisco is also the birthplace of tequila, the wide-brimmed sombrero, and mariachis, arguably three of Mexico's biggest symbols. Venture farther away from the big cities during your Jalisco holiday to discover the true heart and soul of this region by attending folk festivals and discovering the secrets of local cuisine.
