This exciting half-day excursion begins with a short 5-minute walk to where you will find your Jeep® waiting. After receiving an orientation on your four-person, manual transmission, open-air Jeep, you will depart caravan-style to explore the scenic countryside of Puerto Vallarta.
Leaving the city behind, your experienced guide will lead you up into the Sierra Madre Mountains, passing through typical Mexican villages along the way. Your route takes you to the area's only tequila factory, Hacienda Doña Engracia, where you will make a stop and receive a short briefing on the process of making tequila. Your adventure continues by crossing a river and passing fruit and tobacco plantations, all the while taking in the spectacular natural beauty of the area.
After your adventurous ride discovering the less-traveled areas that surround Puerto Vallarta, you will stop to enjoy a complimentary snack and drink at a beautiful beach setting. Here, you'll have time to swim, bask in the sun, play volleyball or simply relax before it's time to climb back aboard your Jeep and make the drive back to the pier.
