What a great tour! We did the Sayulita Escape ATV Tour and this tour did not disappoint. We had Jesa and Janet as our guides and they were awesome...patient and friendly, what more could you ask for.

We met at their site in Nuevo Vallarta and then drove to their base camp closer to Sayulita. We had booked 2 cars with 2 drivers for each car so that everyone had a long time driving. This was the best decision as everyone had a long enough time to drive in the mountains as well as on the highway. There weren't anyone else on the tour so it was a private 2 car tour with Jesa and Janet in their own cars. Jesa lead whlle Janet was the last car to make sure we were all intact as a group. She was also the one to block traffic for us to merge, etc.

The UTVs were new Polaris Razr 1000s which were fairly new. We drove through the mountains on tight trails, switchbacks, mud, loose soil and rocks and the UTVs were rock solid.

We drove in the mountains/jungle and half way through, we switched drivers who drove the rest of the way through deep, steep drops, narrow passages, aggressive inclines, etc. After we finished the mountains portion, we drove to Sayulita and then had 90 mins for lunch which was great. We were able to relax, discuss the fun day that we had etc.

After lunch, it was a 30 min ride on the highway to base. I would definitely do this tour again as would the others in the group. What a great day! Thanks Jesa and Janet!!

Very fun experience. Don't where white- like we all did. The trip through the jungle is VERY dusty and you WILL get dirty. That being said, we'd do it all over again- just wearing different clothes. The trip is fun, Sayulita doesn't offer much in the hour and half that you are there, but shopping is good and so is the food. It is an affordable fun and different activity.

We highly recommend this fun dusty tour. You've seen other reviews saying don't wear white....good call. Our guides were Jesa, Armando and Manuel. They were all so helpful and informative, with Jesa giving us some good local history and fun facts while on the shuttle from PV. We left from Puerto Vallarta, rode a shuttle up past Bucerías to their basecamp. We took the Rzrs from there, through the jungle to Sayulita. We spent 1 1/2 hours there, walked around and had some lunch, then headed back VIA the paved roads to the basecamp. Sayulita is awesome, and next time we go to PV we plan to spend more time there. Give this a try, get dirty and have a great day!!

Hey John!! It fills us with joy to hear that you had a blast and an amazing experience with us! Different, but equally thrilling, is All Terrain Safari. Make sure you add it to your itinerary on your next visit. We'll be more than happy to see you soon !! Warmest Regards,

This was awesome!! My husband and I did it with teens in tow and we had the most amazing time!
Nelly (Janelli) and Armando were just the coolest tour guides. Nelly just knew everything about the area, the history, places, people, everything! she made the shuttle ride to the base camp so interesting and friendly. When we got to base camp, Armando led us through the jungle paths on the Polaris atvs. We were all screaming, Up and down steep dirt roads through the most unbelievable landscape! When people in our group popped a tire, a new Polaris was waiting for them within 5 minutes. The service was superb, the ride was epic, Suyalita was quintessential Mexican surf town, with amazing vibe and food, and overall it was an amazing experience. Nelly and Armando were people I definitely want to see again, friendly, knowledgeable, and just the coolest! Vallarta Adventures you sure picked two gems when you hired them!!

This tour was a lot of fun .
Here is the run down .
We left from the marina in PV around 8am got to the destination around 9:30am . The ride out wasn’t bad as the guides talked and educated us on PV and Bucerias.
We then got to the UTVs and left shortly after . The ride is a lot of fun but very dusty . Try and wear something you don’t mind getting dirty . They had said to wear runners and jeans but we wore sandals , flip flops and shorts and had absolutely no problems . We drove for about an hour then got to Salulita. You get about an hour and half to explore the town . Then it’s back on the main road for about half hour . We enjoyed it and would probably do it again if we came to PV again .

This is a MUST if visiting Puerto Vallarta. We had 11 people of all ages, and had the best day ever. Armando was the best tour guide ever and I would request him is possible. He made the experience even better.

We LOVED this excursion. We had 7 people and booked 3 separate razors. Some of us own razors (UTV's) and some don't and those that don't LOVED driving them. We all had a blast. You get to drive on the highways, side roads and out in the Beautiful, Lush jungle. they've made a track area that you can really have a fun time with the razor experience. Then after playing around through the Jungle track you head off into Saylulita. There you'll get about 1.5 hours to explore the quaint beach town. Some of our group stayed at the beach front bar/restaurant they take you to and some of us walked a few blocks into the heart of Salyulita to explore & find lunch. Out of all the excursions we did during our 7 days in PV, this was the agreed on BEST OF THEM ALL. Vallarta Adventures had great staff. Very friendly and accommodating as we had 2 people that have walking disabilities and they were so great with them. The only complaint I have and it's not with Vallarta Adventures, but with the booking agent we used which was VIATOR. I booked our excursion with them. Printed out my vouchers and on the voucher it says you must contact Vallarta Adventures 24 hours prior to your schedule time to confirm you will be attending. I asked multiple times to the VIATOR agent...so I need to call ahead to confirm and she repeatedly said NO, Viator will handle confirming your reservation with them. All you need to do is show up on your tour date at the meeting point. Again I asked her multiple times to make sure and she assured me MAAM, we handle that for you. Your done, just show up at the meeting location. Well guess what. I happened to call Vallarta Adventures 20 hours (not 24 hours) ahead to verify how far the meeting point was from our resort so we knew how much taxi time to allow.....and they told me I'm sorry you did not call 24 hours in advance to confirm you were coming, so your reservation was cancelled. DO NOT LISTEN TO VIATOR, better yet....DO NOT BOOK with VIATOR go book directly with VALLARTA ADVENTURES. Vallarta Adventures apologized that we were told that, they booked us for another day, which we were glad to not loose out on this excursion but we had to then rearrange other things to accommodate that mix up. That is the only thing we were NOT happy with about this excursion. SO YES highly recommend this excursion, but book directly with Vallarta Adventures not VIATOR. which i do believe my confirmation said Viator is a trip advisor company ???? That was the only thing everyone was really looking forward to and I had 7 people counting on me and it was almost screwed up THANK YOU VALLARTA ADVENTURES for making it happen after all.

This excursion was not what was described on the website of What to Expect. We did not ride our buggy from Punta Mita to Sayulito. We met at Punta Mita which was about 40 minutes from Puerto Vallarta. Then we got in the buggy and drove it through a course in the jungle. We did not drive by any villages or farms and did not pass through beaches and creeks. We just followed a man made course through the jungle which was exciting but much more adventurous then what we thought. My 83 year old mother was along for the ride and she did not expect this nor did I. Then after one hour of driving through jungle and lots of dust we hopped on a van that drove us to the beach for one hour. We barely had time to eat. The light snacks that were provided was one granola bar but no bottled water. They only had a big jug of water at the base camp.
The staff was great but again not what we expected. We expected to ride the buggies to the beach and see more of the landscape, not just trees. If you love off roading then you would like this excursion.
