    A must visit when you are in the PV area
    One of our favourite places to visit anytime we are in the PV area. A couple of our family went zip lining and really enjoyed it! Good view from the restaurant and the waterfall is Crystal clear! You have to climb up around the side to get to the natural rock water slide.

    A great place to escape the tourist mayhem of zona romántica
    Came for day one for a little hike with my brother- came back for the whole next day on my own. Touristy but nice entrance- but the amazing hikes and immersions in nature couldn’t be beat. I sat by a freshwater waterfall under the trees for hours without seeing another soul. So refreshing for the spirit.

    Jungle Trip
    We took the eden trip as part of a package purchased for about 50 dollars per person.. The first stops where at the seaside boardwalk and at the church in the downtown area. The church is beautiful and definetly worth a look. We then stropped briefly at a jewelry shop which was a relief as it has ac. They also provide drinks The trip to Eden takes about an hour with one stop at a tequilla shop. After that the trip on the bus becomes harrowing on a dirt road with twist and turns up a mountain side. There were times when the bus began to lean and I thought for sure that we were going to slide down the side of the mountain. After that ride everything was kind of anti climatic. Its a jungle resort with good food, the platter is a great deal and will feed a family of four for about 86 dollars with drinks. The tour trip dos not allow a lot of time for much other than the meal and few pictures and a brief trip down to the river. Bring bug spray and find some shade while you are there because it is hot and humid. Also If you want to spend more time and take in all that this resort has to offer you should take a taxi.

    Long time in the truck
    The Zipline experience was fun and safe but was more of a walk and less time than others we have done in Puerto Vallarta and Hawaii. This took one hour and then we had one hour to swim in a waterfall which was very nice. The drive to the ziplines took almost two hours each way from Nuevo Vallarta (would be like 1 hour if you stay in Puerto Vallarta). This long, bumpy drive and the unadvertised stop at a tequilera for an hour were big cons for our party. We would do another company next time because we lived in Nuevo Vallarta and our party does not drink. Good price...

Unless you are going to zipline it is a long journey over a very poor trail to get there. Upon arrival we were charged a $50mx per person fee to enter and they said if we ate in the restaurant it would be refunded. We stayed for a couple of hours, and when we left upon asking tor the entrance refund we were told sorry. So unless you are going to participate in the ziplines it is an awful ride to get there to see a very small pool of water next to the restaurant.

Terrible Very rude staff. We went with a group of 10 people. Right off the start the rude lady was asking if we have guns ,drugs, cocane , we were offended. Then they tried to argue and tell us we never paid the full admission and need to pay more if we all wanted to sit at a table. They allowed 4 of our group a table then telling us they were full and no tables were available meanwhile all the tables were mostly empty.a
As we left we tried to tell the management that is stupid on your part as if you allowed us a table we would have all purchased food and beers but because they never allowed us a place to sit and they were rude to us we never even bought a beer. Because of the rude staff we also never bought any Tequila, food, beers or a souvenir. Shame on you guys and i hope the owner of this business FIRES all of you for treating thier customers with disrespect....

I had done this zip line back in 2012, coupled with ATV trekking, and back then it was decent, a rating of 3/5 stars, but not now. The zip line had 10 lines with the eighth line the longest and fastest line of the group. They pressure you into tipping as well, and some of the staff don’t wear masks, which is a concern as you are within two feet of them as they explain the line. I had a beer with four Americans who were on the tour with me, one of which worked for the US DoD, good people. There are superior zip lines in the PV area, so research what you want to do, as El Eden is dated and very basic.

Me and my girlfriend had went on a morning boat tour and didn't want to spend the afternoon in the room. So we took a taxi to El Eden(where Predator was filmed). It was one of the many jewels on the trip. We was able to relax next to a river with a waterfall you can swim in. Also was able to enjoy one of the best seafood platters in my life for only $800pesos. We went during a slow time so it was very relaxing and just what we was looking for.

Very rushed. We paid for 13 lines of zipline and atvs. I was told we would be able to swim under the waterfall and have lunch. I'm diabetic so I had to get lunch. When we arrived they told us we only had 40 minutes there and so I could do 5 lines and have lunch which is what we did. Still did not have time to swim. Atvs were fine. Highway was dangerous and they keep you in a single line so not much freedom In speed. Beautiful views which is why I gave it 2 stars, I just wish we had time to enjoy them. Waste of time and money. 10-31-2020

The experience was frustrating to say the least… I tried to contact them for almost 10 days, as I wanted to take a larger group. The website does not work, and all the contact methods they have listed don’t work either. I tried to call, send messages via FB and Whatsapp, all without success. Don’t waste your time…

Wow! This place has changed since my husband and I were there in May 1987 on our honeymoon! We had rented a jeep for exploring and literally came across this place as we traveled through the jungle. We came to a sign and a very battered helicopter saying Arnold had finished filming a movie there, so exciting! Later, back home, a movie came out called Predator. Awesome! We went to the restaurant (guess it was El Eden) and I remember thinking it was a once in a lifetime experience. When would I ever eat in a jungle again with monkeys jumping around!! Everything looks so commercialized now, but I definitely would recommend a visit☺.

PS. Just read this place has closed. Such great memories.

If you fancy a good day out then give this a try , I was a bit nervous myself but it was my partner’s birthday & that’s what he wanted to do , we had a little issue with them forgetting to pick us up from the pick up point ( not sure if this was the company we booked with or El Eden , everyone else had been picked up from their pick up location) but we managed to get sorted & it didn’t spoil the day , our driver was fantastic such a lovely funny friendly guy , the journey on the road that leads to El Eden is very bumpy so if your travel sick then take something before, the place itself is beautiful with mountains & waterfalls. The guys that took us round the zip lines were very professional & explained what was going to happen & what to expect, after doing the first line my nerves completely went & I really enjoyed it , my partner had a little accident due to spinning round & landing the wrong way round but he was fine after , little tip if u start spinning round then cross your ankles ( it worked for me ) , we did only do 9 lines which we were told 11/12 but it was still worth it , you get an hour to yourself after to go for a walk /swim or have food/drink . You will definitely need bug spray & try & get the wristband ( wrist & ankles) it so humid that you sweat so much we think we actually sweated the spray off . So after that you are taken for tequila tasting, now I’m not a big fan but it was so different to what we had tasted before & they tell you all about the history & making of tequila. We had a long journey back to our hotel but our driver did check if we needed to stop for anything, our driver had taken a few photos of us & when I looked at them later they made me chuckle, he had taken a few pics of himself, cheeky but I loved it , a lovely end to a fantastic day

We had an amazing time! Ritchie, Maner and Jose were our guides and they were so nice and patient with us. The hike is not for the weak as we got tired very quickly as such an altitude. But sooo worth the experience and the beauty.

...I also recommend the mango margarita!
