Visiting Vallarta-Nayarit is more than just an interlude of sun, sand and water; it is also an

encounter with nature. In the Bay of Banderas and especially the surrounding Sierra Madre

Mountains you will find numerous options for having fun and connecting with the natural

environment like never before. There’s everything from tranquil cruises to ecotourism and

extreme activities. Today I’ll tell you how to make a trip to the jungle without leaving Vallarta-

1- Decide where to go

Vallarta-Nayarit has many places in the jungle. Just to name a few, you can go to El Eden, Palo

Maria, El Nogalito or El Rio Cuale. Ask your Concierge which area he or she recommends- it’s

always great to have a local’s opinion.

2- Plan your activities

Each of these places offers the opportunity for different activities including zip lining, Gotcha, quad

bikes, horse riding, rappelling and many others. If you like adventure, this is perfect way to get

your fix.

3-Find the best offer

Just as there are many activities, there are also many agencies that provide these services. To

make sure to get the best deal, try checking with the travel agency at your resort. As authorized

dealers they often have more affordable pricing. They may even be able to offer you a package

deal for your group.


Unless you have rented a car you may not have transportation to get around town. To avoid

missing out on any of the activities you have booked, take your time to get from one place to

another. Ask to the Concierge to help you arrange transportation to and from the hotel- it will be

safer and cheaper.

5-Have fun

Don’t forget to bring your camera to capture those moments of adventure and excitement! Have

fun and make the most of every side of Vallarta-Nayarit you’re lucky enough to see.

I hope these tips are useful for planning your vacation to Vallarta-Nayarit, where you can

experience the jungle without having to go far to find it! Don’t forget to share your experience

with us- we’d love to hear where you go and what you do.
