What people are saying about Jalisco

I highly recommend this excursion! We had a great time. Our hotel was not close enough for us to be picked up, we met the guide at the assigned location and he was on time. It was only 9 of us on the tour. I felt welcomed when we arrived at the ranch. The horse back riding was fun, after I got over my fear! It was my first time, they did give us instructions prior to heading out to the trail. My horse was Matatah (he did his own thing ) we did became buddies after a few miles in☺️. We rode to a water fall and crossed some scary wood bridges. We did 7 zip lines, it was my first time, it was thrilling and scary at the same time. The ATV’s were fun, we rode through a town and along some dirt roads. The entire excursion was fun. We ended the day with beer, margaritas, tequila shots, & authentic delicious food. I highly recommend this tour! The guides were attentive and made sure we were having a good time. Lastly, we were dropped back to our pickup location. A great time☺️.

Enrique “Kike” was our guide and he was awesome! My group and I went zip lining for the first time and felt like we were in good hands the whole time. Kike was not only professional and knowledgeable but made the experience a blast! Definitely recommend to anybody looking for an adventure.

Best ziplines around with amazing views! Wish they picked up in Puerto Vallarta so it was less tricky getting there, but they dropped us off at our hotel when we were done so that made up for it. The guides were engaging and funny.

We had a blast. My first time doing it and loved it. Zip lining guides did such an amazing job taking care of our group. They were friendly, informative, and a lot of fun. Thanks again! Highly recommend!

the staff was amazing. Very friendly and accommodating. Tequila tasting was great, food phenomenal, horses well mannered, and the ziplines fun. will definitely return
