Highly recommend this experience, I had an amazing time exploring the jungle with the team from Jaguar Experience, everyone was super nice and very accommodating making sure that I feel safe at all times and that I’m having fun. The food was also super delicious and the menu was adapted to my pescatarian diet which I really appreciated! I am definitely looking forward to go back next time I visit Puerto Vallarta!!

Chema & Lorenzo were fantastic. They were timely, meeting up with them was easy, and so knowledgeable and personable. When the water conditions in one area weren't awesome for snorkeling that day, they took us to another location to try it there. Their recommendations for our time in Las Animas were also great. We enjoyed a tasty meal at a place that had shower access, which was a nice touch after snorkeling!

Bruno was our guide. We were interested in how the food in Mexico was tied to the history and culture. Bruno explained so much. Such a neat Beetle, such wonderful people, such a great experience. Highly reccomend!

Hector was an informative, helpful and personable tour guide. We had a great day!
