Full description

Embark on a hike through the tropical forests of Puerto Vallarta with a local guide. Admire the beautiful and unique flora and fauna and different animal life, and cross the Jorullo Bridge.

Start your day hiking through 8km to the depths of the mountains of the Sierra Madre Occidental, a wonderful way to explore the extensive flora and fauna of Vallarta. Admire the species of parrots and macaws in their natural habitat, a colorful dragonfly may perch on a nearby leaf; a lizard may scuttle rapidly along a rock or remain motionless in an attempt at camouflage; a wide variety of butterflies may flutter along your path and beautiful birds may pick at small fruit from an overhead tree. Take a break into the crystal waters of “El Salto” waterfalls to cool off for a moment and hike back to the best of the tour.

Ready to feel the adrenaline? Cross the longest traffic suspension bridge in the Pacific, the Jorullo Bridge, with 470 meters of length and 170 meters’ height above the Cuale River. Do not hesitate and prepare for the adventure in the tropical forest of Vallarta!

We goofed up the departure time for the tour due to a time change, but the office worked with us to help us have a tour within the new time contraints, which was super nice! If they wanted, I assume they could have just told us we missed the departure and we were out of luck, so even though we got an abbreviated tour - it was better than nothing! Our tour guide Esteban (sp?) was super! Very friendly (and patient - I'm not exactly an athlete in my middle years!) and it ended up being a very enjoyable way to spend an afternoon in Puerto Vallarto!

The hike was 90% on a dusty road for ATV one hill & dale, not mush river valley. The final destination was beautiful waterfall & pond, but not worth 1.5-2 hours of drudgery, The gui=de was almost wordless.
