Great experience in a small, friendly group with our dedicated and warm-hearted guide, Miguel, and our experienced driver, Carlos. I more than liked San Pancho, with its small main street with colorful pennants and typical restaurants. Sayulita is much more popular and crowded, but it's a great opportunity for local shopping at rock bottom prices. I recommend the tour!

It was an entertaining day, very interesting. David was very knowledgeable in many areas. I will do this tour again next time I come. I would prefer more time in San Pancho and less in Sayulita.
