What people are saying about Nayarit

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☺️.

This was the most relaxing part of our trip. The drive to the ranch was entertaining. The horses were extremely well behaved and easy to ride. The ride was relaxing and beautiful. The swim was refreshing. The food was amazing! Would/will do again.

Everything was wonderful, tightly timed, but so you had enough time on every beach to enjoy everything, eat something or go swimming. I'm absolutely thrilled, it was a fantastic day tour and I can only recommend it!

Ramiro (Remmy)! Desde San Diego,CA. Fernando and Kat had the best experience ever! Horse back ride takes you into a beautiful waterfall, taking you back to zip line and then atv ride. Unlimited beer and tequila.

the staff was amazing. Very friendly and accommodating. Tequila tasting was great, food phenomenal, horses well mannered, and the ziplines fun. will definitely return
