Top 5 Things to do

  1. Dive at Arrecife Palancar – This underwater paradise lies less then a mile off Cozumel and offers 230-foot visibility – perfect for underwater photography. The deepest area of Arrecife Palancar is 80-feet deep – which is ideal for deep-diving among the colorful marine life, but a plunge in the north end of the reef, 'Palancar Gardens', will grant access to its shallow caverns.


  2. Shop Tlaquepaque – This Guadalajara suburb offers a shopoholic dreamland of more than 300 specialty stores that are entirely closed off to traffic. Tlaquepaque looks like more of a town and offers numerous bed & breakfast inns to accommodate the weekend shoppers. Here, you'll find homemade textiles, fine crystal and sidewalk cafes with live Mariachi music. Numerous guided tours are offered through hotels and travel agents.


  3. All Aboard the Tequila Express – Each Saturday the Tequila Express departs from Guadalajara and chugs forth to the Hacienda de San Jose del Refugio – where Tequila Herradurra is made. While on board the train serves up mariachi, tequila and beer. Once the train reaches the station, guests will enjoy a tour of Hacienda de San José del Refugio and Museum and a traditional Mexican lunch.


  4. Party at the Cabo Wabo Cantina – The famous Cabo Wabo Cantina, in Cabo San Lucas, is owned by Van Halen frontman Sammy Hagar and is frequented by Sammy's musician buddies as well as a sizzling hot crowd. Live rock bands typically provide the night's entertainment until the wee hours of the morning.


  5. Swinging Canopy Tours – This isn't a tour for those afraid of heights. Guests glide from treetop to treetop on a complex platform and cable pulley system while a guide explains the ecosystem below. This tour is offered by the Vallarta Adventures and costs $65 for adults and $33 for children.
