Mexico, a country with a rich cultural heritage and diverse geography, offers idyllic landscapes for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of urban life. One of these is San Sebastián del Oeste, Jalisco, a charming little town tucked away in the Sierra Madre Occidental, an old mining town with cobbled streets, wooded vegetation and all the traditions of real old Mexico.

To get to San Sebastián del Oeste from Puerto Vallarta, take the highway 544 towards Guadalajara via Mascota. It is a 65-kilometre journey that will allow you to appreciate the transition from tropical vegetation to beautiful mountainous landscapes.

On the other hand, in addition to these excellent property investment opportunities, what are some of the attractions of living in the countryside? Here are some of the considerations to take into account:


One of the most significant charms of living in the countryside in Mexico is the tranquility and peace that comes with it. Away from the noise and pollution of the city, the countryside offers a serene environment with clean air and natural surroundings. The chirping of birds, the rustling leaves, and the sound of a nearby stream make for a soothing soundtrack to daily life.


Mexico’s countryside is known for its natural beauty, which includes rugged mountains, rolling hills, and vast plains—living in the countryside means being surrounded by breathtaking landscapes that change with the seasons, from colorful autumn leaves to blooming wildflowers in the spring.


Living in the countryside also means having access to fresh and organic produce. Farmers in the countryside grow various fruits and vegetables sold at local markets. Eating fresh and organic produce is a healthy and more sustainable way of living.


Living in the countryside offers a chance to be part of a closely-knit community. People in rural areas tend to be friendly and welcoming, and neighbors often help each other. Living in a community where everyone knows each other can provide a sense of security and belonging.
