Horseback ride through one of the most gorgeous jungle areas of Puerto Vallarta every Monday on our GO GAY! Rio Cuale Adventure with a traditional Mexican cowboy and your My Own Concierge personal GO GAY! guide. Bring your friends and make new ones as we enjoy a great day of horseback riding, local Mexican food, tequila tasting, a beautiful waterfall and swimming hole, plus plenty of all-around GAYziness. Your day begins with shuttle service through Old Town along the Rio Cuale learning about the history of Vallarta, arriving at the banks of the Cuale River where you mount your horses and venture into the foothills of the Sierra Madre mountains. Our guide will point out native plants and animals, from Basilisk lizards on the water's edge to beautiful endangered Military Macaws, colorful butterflies above, and even the occasional Coati Mundi, as you horseback ride along the riverbank and up into the hills. Continuing up the mountain from the river, you arrive at a mountain lookout point with a magnificent view of Banderas Bay and Puerto Vallarta. You'll also visit a small waterfall cascade on the river, which happens to be a great place for a swim to cool off! A half-hour later, you head back down to the river surrounded by lush tropical vegetation including wild orchids, palms, and bromeliads as you continue back to town. Your next stop is a tranquil rustic Mexican restaurant Moro Paraiso on the banks of the Rio Cuale, with authentic Mexican BBQ cooking accompanied by homemade salsas and fresh tortillas (alcoholic beverages additional). After lunch you'll head through the riverside pueblo of Paso Ancho before returning into Puerto Vallarta and civilization, with time for a relaxing massage, to chill on the beach at sunset, or dine out on the town. Minimum age 7 years. Weight limit 250 lbs.

We had a group of 10 of us and the guide could not have been more fun. We started about 10 and got back around 3 and it included a stop for swimming and lunch with tequila tasting. We had a lot of laughs and it was a great day. HIGHLY recommended. This was the highlight of our trip.

We did this excursion three years ago, and decided to do it again when we were in Puerto Vallarta last week. The hilly landscape is stunning, with clear brooks and lush vegetation. The horses are easy to ride, and the guides (two this time) were skilled, friendly and accommodating. It's a very pleasant addition to a week otherwise mostly spent... More

Sr. Juan was confident and in control of the ride, leading us across the river more than once, then up the side of the hills through tight rocky switchbacks to a glorious view of the area from the top. We had time to swim in the river on the way back, and a delicious traditional Mexican meal before heading back... More

After enjoying the Go Gay! Jungle Adventure, we decided to take off on another trip offered by the Goy Gay! tour guides. We've been horseback riding before, and expected a short tour around some easy trails followed by some food and drink. Our expectations were exceeded by leaps and bounds. These beautiful animals and an awesome tour guide (authentic Mexican... More

My wife and I booked this tour prior to visiting Puerto Vallarta. We liked the look of the horses in the pictures, they seemed well cared for in addition to the tour photos showing people having an obviously good time.

Thank you so much for joining us on the GO GAY! Rio Cuale Adventure! It's great to hear how much fun you had, and how important the care of the horses is to you. While our guest's enjoyment is always a priority, the animals care and health is #1, and we couldn't ask for a better partner than our local... More

The guide was a friendly Mexican cowboy, the ride went through beautiful nature, and we got to spend several hours on horseback, split up by some refreshing bathing by a waterfall. The horses were responsive and easy to ride and looked well-cared-for (to my inexperienced eyes). It was great getting away from the crowds and out into nature for a... More

Andrew and Logan are great hosts, know tons about Puerto Vallarta, and are just lots of fun. Not to mention... you get to meet real Mexican cowboys, ride horses through beautiful countryside, eat at a scenic little restaurant and taste (legal) Mexican moonshine!

Much appreciate the review and the Brokeback comparison! There really isn't anything like the views and countryside of Puerto Vallarta, and so few guests leave the beach and bars to take the time to explore. Thank you both for joining us and we hope to see you again soon! More

Have not been a a horse in quite a long time however like it's said... "It like riding a bike" but in this case a horse. It lives up to every expectation and succeeds in exceeding them. A great way to see and feel what Mexico is about. Pure and fresh just like the river and mountains that surround you.... More
