VALLE DE BANDERAS: The fastest route is to drive north to Bucerias and then head directly east towards the foothills of the Sierra Madres. The road is straight and good, passing palms, mango orchards and gleaming fields of corn. The ride takes approximately one hour from centro Vallarta. In the midst
of this beautiful, green rural area is the immaculate town named after its location - Valle de Banderas . "Valley of Flags."
