From Guadalajara: Tapalpa and Attaco Private Tour

2. From Guadalajara: Tapalpa and Attaco Private Tour

A Pueblo Mágico (Magical Town) is a reflection of Mexico, a place that over time has been able to preserve, value, and defend its historical and cultural heritage. Tapalpa, an alpine town south of Guadalajara, proudly owns this title. On this private tour, discover the picturesque pine clad hills, creeks, and small lakes that surround this small colonial town before visiting the indigenous village of Attaco. Get picked up from your hotel in Guadalajara at 9:30 AM and drive 2 hours south to Tapalpa. Upon arrival, take a guided tour of the town, its Central Plaza, ancient churches, and charming colonial architecture. See why Tapalpa's name speaks for itself, as it comes from the ancient nahuatl language and means "Land of Colors". In the town, sturdy wooden columns support whitewashed houses with red tile roofs and neat cobblestone streets weave around restored churches. Admire one of the most attractive towns in the state of Jalisco and its surrounding landscape. At 1 PM, enjoy some free time for lunch, with suggestions provided by your guide. At 2:30 PM, drive to the indigenous village of Attaco, just outside Tapalpa. This was the first village the Franciscans evangelized in the area, building a hospital for the natives that you'll visit. Walk around the living pharmacy of hundreds of medicinal plants used by the natives in a village that has preserved its ancient uses and customs. At 3:30 PM, begin your return journey to Guadalajara and arrive back at your hotel at approximately 5:30 PM.

This was a great experience!! We went to the opal mine with the owner Eduardo and our guide Luis. They gave I’m using a hammer and you can go anywhere you want to crack open rocks to find opals. It was a lot of fun Afterwards we went to a huge field filled with obsidian. I have never seen anything like it. We had lunch with Luis at a local restaurant next to Eduarfo’s shop and the food was fantastic. I highly recommend this experience to anyone!!

Everybody was very nice. They even showed us where the "good" opals could be found. All 5 of us were happy and felt it was a great outing.
