Off-Road Adventure: Traditional Mexican Village and Sierra Madre Hike with Lunch

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Offroad Adventure is the ideal way to get off the beaten path and explore the real Mexico! Never shy to celebrate the wealth of natural resources and raw, breathtaking scenery of this area - we'll escort you by Unimog into the remote, traditional villages of the Mexican Outback and uncover the ecosystem and wildlife of the mountains and jungles of the Sierra Madre.
  • Explore the Sierra Madre mountains without getting lost with a guide
  • Visit outlying towns in Jalisco that are difficult to find on your own
  • Choose from two departure locations to fit your schedule
  • Round-trip transport by Unimog truck included with this Puerto Vallarta tour
What to Expect
Meet your guide at a convenient central location in Puerto Vallarta or Nuevo Vallarta and hop aboard a specially designed Unimog all-wheel-drive truck for your off-road adventure through the Sierra Madre mountains. Splash through rivers and bounce along rugged terrain, as you travel deep into the heart of the Sierra Madre mountains. Take in the scenes of rural life and visit a traditional village to see how families grow and prepare their own food. Then stop by a family home for freshly prepared corn tortillas, beans, and homemade salsas. Next, take a guided nature hike through the jungle to see native plants and wildlife. After your hike, travel back out to the coast for a beachside lunch. Enjoy a drink from the open bar, and then end your tour at the original meeting spot.

On this tour, the food selection was limited and definitely with a cultural flare. If I had a special needs child who was picky, I would pack a few of his/her favorite snacks.

We got a taxi to Vallarta adventures near the marina and you get on the truck there. There is a small light breakfast and drinks if you arrive in plenty of time before the trip sets off
