This is 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.


You'll head Northeast, into the majestic Sierra Madre mountain range, climbing to 3,000 feet above sea level, where you'll find the historic and majestic city of Compostela.


After you will visit their Cali-Huey (temple), while they present you with their splendid music and dance. You will have the opportunity to take photographs of their rituals and traditional costumes, and buy highly sought-after authentic Huichol handcrafts.


After this fascinating encounter, you 'll head back to the capital city of Tepic, where you 'll eat a delicious 3-course Mexican Lunch at a 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.
