You might wonder . . . why does the price go up?  It is an enticement to get you to commit to the project.  We are making preparations in Nayarit that must be done in anticipation according to the numbers of persons that will participate.  Your commitment to the project at an earlier date will ensure that we are aptly prepared to receive you in Mexico.  To the same end, registrations will be capped in each track when we have reached capacity.

What is the best way to get there?

Tepic, Nayarit has its’ own airport and there are direct flights in from major Mexican national airports. If you are not flying direct to Tepic, we recommend that you fly to Puerto Vallarta or Guadalajara. Puerto Vallarta’s Diaz Ordaz International Airport is 96 miles/155 kilometers in driving distance from Tepic, Nayarit. Guadalajara’s Hidalgo y Costilla International Airport is 139 mi/224km driving distance from Tepic, Nayarit. Puerto Vallarta is closer, but you will find more direct international flights into Guadalajara. Bus service into Tepic is frequent and cost-effective from either city. If you will fly into Guadalajara or Puerto Vallarta, and are interested in carpooling to Tepic with fellow FSF’ers, we will help you to coordinate with each other.
