Discovering the beauty of San Sebastian
The old pueblo of San Sebastian has a very special charm. Yes, it's the beauty of the Sierra Madre mountains surrounding the village, it's the hospitality and friendliness of the people. It's the simplicity of old times.
You will discover the charm of San Sebastian as you walk the quaint cobblestone and observe the old adobe houses roofed with terracota tiles, and you smell the aroma of fresh roasted coffee mixed with the cool breeze from the pine forest. When you combine all these experiences you understand the magic of San Sebastian.
I can customize your tour to meet your needs and interests.

Cervando was charming, knowledgeable, engaging and fun. He gave us space to explore and was responsive to our needs. There was no pressure to buy at any of the stops (coffee plantation, tequila distillery, small shops) which was appreciated and very different from large bus tours we have previously taken. He is a very safe driver and planned a great day full of history, natural beauty and local colour. He introduced us to local residents including children and local police. We highly recommend Cervando.
