What people are saying about Jalisco

A great day spent with our guide Jorge, who lives in the area of the tour. He knows everything about the pueblos just south of PV and is doing his part to help the wild macaws in the area. Would have liked to have spent more that 15 minutes in the main part of El Tuito - needed at least, but we had to keep to a schedule to fit in all the stops.

Eduardo was very knowledgeable about the plants and birds that we saw. His knowledge of the history and ecosystems of the area was very interesting. Super easy to get along with and a great companion.
