My wife and I took the horseback riding tour, and it was one of the best parts of our honeymoon trip. We were picked up in Sayulita, and taken to the Villa Paraíso ranch in Higuera Blanca. Our guide Micho took the tour to the next level. He told us all about the flora and fauna in the area and happily answered all of our questions. All of the staff were very friendly and accommodating. We were able to take pictures at the ranch but not during the ride for safety, which is understandable once you get on the horses. The photographer was great, and we were able to purchase a USB with the pictures for $800 pesos/about $40 usd. Pesos are easier, but they will take usd/cards with a fee. The food was great as well. You have to try the limonada! The ranch is truly a piece of paradise, and we really enjoyed are time there. Highly recommend Villa Paraíso!!

Our instructor, Cynthia, and our boat driver, Rafael were amazing to work with! They were extremely knowledgeable about the fishies, wild life, and towns around us! They made us feel extremely safe the entire time. They even took pictures of us on our phones, free of charge! Most other adventure companies would charge for that. I really appreciated the knowledge and the professionalism of both of them. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone looking to explore Yelapa and snorkel to see colorful fish! We even saw a huge sea turtle! 10/10!

our guide Carlos was amazing!! My family and I had so much fun and it made our vacation so much better. The atvs are beginner friendly and Carlos was very good at communication in regards to changing gears throughout the trip. Afterwards Omar led us through tequila tasting and it was delicious. We ended up buying two bottles! I would recommend this place to everyone and we would definitely book again if we were to return!

Great tour! Adan is very knowledgeable and funny. He delivers a great historical description to this beautiful old town and let's you interact with his tour by asking you questions about what he has taught you! Highly recommend it!

The crew make an already scenic adventure incredible.
