What to Expect

Continue on a ride through the Sierra Madre mountain range, stopping at a hidden waterfall impossible to find if exploring on your own. Follow your guide to the small village of Pizota to enjoy free time on a private beach far from the crowds of Puerto Vallarta. Relax on the sand, or take advantage of sea kayaks and beach hammocks. Cap the tour with a buffet lunch of traditional Mexican food, including grilled meat and vegetables, beans, quesadillas, salsas, and desserts. The tour ends back in Puerto Vallarta.

The horses knew their way and we ended up at this beautiful waterfall area that had a restaurant and dining area. The water was a bit cold but refreshing. Then we headed off to snorkel.
