The Full Finca 18 Story

The history of Finca 18 is more than any typical story that tells the how, when, where or why something was started, this unique place called "the ranch" for those who love it involves a historical and intriguing legend of a buried treasure.


Legend has it that there under the palm tree (a certain palm tree) lies a buried treasure, and the fact is that in the past when there was not even a road connecting to Vallarta, all the way through the ranch was a royal road.


One day some criminals were coming down and fleeing in a hurry from up the mountains through the Cuale Mining company, with a cargo full of money, obviously they had stolen it and the soldiers were on their heels. It is said that on their way through what today is the farm the criminals left their loot buried.

Doña Trini can tell you the story, an elderly lady of little hearing and mother of the patron saint of the place.
