Overview

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.
