Rogelio, owner of Eco Ride, is very helpful and an all around nice guy. Our guides Fernando and Fernanda were wonderful. This is a good challenge, yet a very enjoyable ride. We are beginner mountain trail riders, our guides were very accommodating and encouraging. The trail along the river was espectacular. I highly recommend this tour. On our next visit we will try their trail hike.

Did a trip with a guide named Fernando. Who was very good. This is a short trail but the ride to the trail head was long up a steep gravel road. with a short decent, the trail was not in great condition. I would recommend booking with this company but would choose a different trail.

We took a taxi to the shop. Were fitted with our bikes, met our guide and headed out. We rode through neighborhoods on cobblestone roads and headed up into the mountainside on dirt road. We peaked at a quant little restaurant with beautiful cascading pools on the river. After the ride we walked down to the boardwalk and walked along the ocean back to the Cruise Ship. It was a nice day. We would recommend.

I've been travelling to Puerto Vallarta for about 12 years now and have made Eco Ride a regular part of my visits for the past 7 years. I have done a couple of different rides but Yelapa is a favourite for my wife and I. The ride is not for the inexperienced rider and you need to be reasonable fit or you'll likely cough up a lung on one of the three big climbs, two of which you may end up doing in the hottest part of the day. The rewards are well worth it though. In the last few kilometres of this ride you'll be treated to a spectacular view overlooking Yelapa, followed by a thrilling downhill. Be prepared! The downhill can be technical...or not...it depends on how much rain they've had that year. Lot's of rain = lots of technical sections, little rain = a few technical sections. I have never had a bad experience in all the years I've been riding with Eco Ride. Rogelio is always pleasant and his guides are skilled, patient, and professional. Echo Ride has a good selection bikes and have been upgraded their bikes as technology has changed. Almost all their bikes are now 27.5. Each bike is well maintained with intermediate to high end components. I highly recommend doing a ride with these guys!!

I have been coming to PV annually for about 5 years and we make mountain biking a major part of our activities. We have become familiar with several routes through tours with Eco Ride, and we make a point of doing the El Tuito to Yelapa trip with them each year. No matter which guide we have gone with, they have been unfailingly patient and helpful. This year we went with their newest addition, Joel. Along the way we had the chance to meet some of his family who were just as warm and welcoming. As others have mentioned it is a good idea to be in fairly good shape to tackle this tour. It can get quite warm by the time you hit the hills so a few days to acclimatize don't hurt either. But it can be chilly at the start as you are up high, so a pair of "arms" are nice until it warms up. There are some great downhills while still on pavement before the big up. (And it is pretty big). Once you hit the dirt double track there are still some more ups and downs but not so sustained. Keep your eyes peeled for birds, lines of ants across the path, and maybe a snake in the underbrush. Then as you approach the top of the big (and its a doozie) downhill you will be rewarded with vistas galore of the ocean and coast below . There is lots of downhill ahead so take the time to stop at a few spots for photos. When you are ready to let loose, remember the most recent (and maybe even several earlier) rains cause constant remodeling of the road so be prepared ! Your brakes may be smoking hot by the time you reach Yelapa but you will be rewarded with a seaside table and a well deserved beverage. Rogelio, Brittany, and their staff will take good care of you from start to finish. Put yourself in their capable hands and enjoy!
