Parrots, macaws, and orchids are among the flora and fauna you're likely to see on this 2-hour hiking adventure in the Sierra Madre Occidental. Explore the natural wonders of this region with a guide, then cool off in the Cuale River and follow-up with a tequila-tasting session.
What to Expect

Depart in the morning or afternoon with pickup from central meeting points around Puerto Vallarta — Marina Vallarta (Collage Disco), Nuevo Vallarta, Plaza Las Glorias, or Centro (downtown) — depending on the option selected at time of booking.

You'll head deep into the mountains of the Sierra Madre Occidental and embark on a small-group, guided hike covering just over 1 mile (2 km). Search for species of parrots and macaws in their natural habitat, and learn from your guide about the extensive flora, which includes a variety of orchids unique to the region of the Sierra Madres. 

Then take a break in an oasis by the Cuale River where you have the opportunity to swim and cool off before hiking back. Top off the experience with a tequila-tasting session.

You're returned to your starting point at the conclusion of the tour.

This hike was beautiful! Our guide, Rafael, was very informative and friendly. We felt very safe on this hike and we even learned about the different fruits and trees we saw on our way.
