What to Expect
Meet your guide at a convenient central location in Puerto Vallarta or Nuevo Vallarta and hop aboard a specially designed Unimog all-wheel-drive truck for your off-road adventure through the Sierra Madre mountains. Splash through rivers and bounce along rugged terrain, as you travel deep into the heart of the Sierra Madre mountains. Take in the scenes of rural life and visit a traditional village to see how families grow and prepare their own food. Then stop by a family home for freshly prepared corn tortillas, beans, and homemade salsas. Next, take a guided nature hike through the jungle to see native plants and wildlife. After your hike, travel back out to the coast for a beachside lunch. Enjoy a drink from the open bar, and then end your tour at the original meeting spot.

We had a great day touring the hinterlands around Puerto Vallarta. Our guide Maria-Inez was DELIGHTFUL and made sure that all of the guests became friends early in the tour. We really did go off-road (be prepared to jounce around in the truck), but that's part of the fun.
