What people are saying about Nayarit

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.

We had the most amazing time ziplining and horseback riding! Our guides were amazing. The zip line guys (Danny, Giovanni, Angel, and another whose name I can’t remember) were SO funny. It’s like an adventure and comedy tour all wrapped into one!

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!

This activity exceeded all my expectations. Very well organized and the boat crew were extremely fun. Great quality food, ambiance, and show.

Exceeded all expectations. You won’t regret going. It’s an experience you won’t forget and something you’ll tell all your friends about.
