San Blas is a historic seaport town (population
12,000) on Mexico's Pacific Ocean, 95 miles north
of Puerto Vallarta. Travelers have been visiting
San Blas beaches since the 60's for sun, surf,
and relaxation, yet San Blas has not been developed
into a tourist resort like Puerto Vallarta or Mazatlan;

Founded in 1768 by Spain as a home port
for ships setting sail for California, San Blas provided
Spanish galleons safe harbor and protection from Dutch
and English pirates.
