West to the coast: to Tepic via Tequila

Northwest of Guadalajara lie the fabled agave and tequila towns, pleasant reminders of the fact that in spite of the enormity of its capital, Jalisco remains largely an agricultural state. They also mark the entrance to the state's tourism-driven towns, none more so than the northern outpost of Puerto Vallarta and its expanding environs. But there are also several lovely villages nestled in the hills, as yet untouched by mass tourism and still redolent of their colonial past. And for those with an interest in wildlife, this relatively undisturbed region is one of the best in Mexico for birdwatching.
