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☺️.

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!

It was a great day tho I would have enjoyed going in earlier when many dolphins were around us and seemed delighted we were there. Overall, it was great fun!

Absolutely wonderful day and the staff on Board were phenomenal
