What people are saying about Puerto Vallarta

The ATVing through the beautiful scenery was a definite, unexpected highlight of our time in Puerto Vallarta. We loved zooming through puddles and over muddy hills. The team at Canopy River were patient and made sure everyone was comfortable and knew what they were doing. Expect to get a little dirty especially if it’s just rained. The zip lining was great but keep in mind there’s a weight limit. My husband was told he couldn’t do the zip line because of a weight issue, they didn’t tell us what that limit was but looked at him and said he was over it - he’s 6ft6in so is definitely a big guy so we can understand it but it was a bit disappointing to do the zipping alone. There is a restaurant onsite at Canopy River which is 250 pesos / $12.50 for the buffet if you get hungry and there’s also an opportunity to do tequila tasting and swim in a beautiful pool if you want to stay in the mountains longer.

What a fun day! We chose to do all three activities. I think the ziplining was my favorite. The views were stunning! The staff was incredibly friendly and made the day extra fun. Good food and good times. Highly recommend.

We had a wonderful time horseback riding, zip lining and ATV riding through the back parts of Puerto Vallarta. The excursion ended with an authentic and delicious Mexican meal. Our young teenagers LOVED it all!

This was so much fun. Horse back riding was a little king - my booty hurt. Zip lines and ATVs were awesome! Must do.

Great day with a great crew. Would definitely recommend
