San Pancho is a small traditional beach town located on Mexico's West coast thirty miles North of Puerto Vallarta. It has a population of 1000 people. The surrounding jungle is home to iguanas, mongoose, armadillos, and the jaguar. In the sea, local fishermen bring in red snapper (huachinango), Mahi or Dorado, oysters, and lobsters daily. If you watch the sea long enough you’ll surely see whales, dolphins and sometimes manta rays. It is a mix of new and old with horseback as a mode of transportation. The natural beauty and slow pace of San Pancho truly makes it a great place to get away for peace and relaxation.
Activity seekers will find plenty to keep them busy, including: hiking, jungle walks or coastal walks, surfing, swimming, fishing, horseback riding, polo games, whale watching, kayaking adventures, birding, day trips to Isla Marietta, yoga classes, dance classes, and art classes for kids.
