Meet your guide in the morning at a central location in Puerto Vallarta. After a safety tutorial, mount your horse and head south. On arrival to a small remote fishing village rarely seen by tourists, listen to your guide give historical and cultural background about the community.

Continue on a ride through the Sierra Madre mountain range, stopping at a hidden waterfall impossible to find if exploring on your own. Follow your guide to the small village of Pizota to enjoy free time on a private beach far from the crowds of Puerto Vallarta. Relax on the sand, or take advantage of sea kayaks and beach hammocks.

Cap the tour with a buffet lunch of traditional Mexican food, including grilled meat and vegetables, beans, quesadillas, salsas, and desserts. The tour ends back in Puerto Vallarta.
