What you can expect

Clamber up rough mountain passes and glimpse the peaks of the Sierra Madre Mountains in the distance during a guided mules or horse back ride. This captivating trail excursion leads you to El Salto Waterfall, where you can dismount for a refreshing swim before descending into Puerto Vallarta for a tequila tasting.

The forested slopes of the Sierra Madre Mountains are calling your name. Leave the cacophony of Puerto Vallarta behind as a knowledgeable guide ushers you to a trailhead where you meet your trusty steed. Known to be heartier and more patient than horses, mules have been used to carry cargo for centuries. Swing a leg over your mule and adjust to its gait. Then, launch your trek beneath the tropical canopy.

Make out the lilting song of the Mexican chickadee and keep your eyes peeled for the busy blue throated hummingbird. Your mule makes quick work of the riverbed. If you like, practice trotting across a flat section to enjoy the full trail experience. At El Salto Waterfall, take a dunk in the river before departing the mountains for Puerto Vallarta. Finally, end your adventures with a delicious tequila toast back in the bustling city center.
