  1. Hola Paco,
    TALPA, TALPA, TALPA!
    By the way, there is a day tour to Talpa, offered by Vallarta Adventures and other tour companies in P.V. It’s a bit pricey, but includes a lunch and a tour guide. I think it also includes San Sebastian and Mascota en route. It takes about 8 hours to go and return.
