The wonders of the Sierra Madre Mountains beckon during a guided trek and tequila tasting experience.
Embark on a leisurely hike through the lush tropical forest outside of Puerto Vallarta, cool off in the rushing waters of the Cuale River, and taste delicious tequila produced steps from where you sit.
Meet your guide in Puerto Vallarta and head east toward the Sierra Madre Mountains. This volcanic range is lauded for its forested slopes, which contain a breathtaking array of biodiversity.
After arriving in the foothills, launch your hike, keeping your eyes peeled for wildlife like maroon-fronted parrots and coatis—little diurnal creatures that resemble raccoons.
Admire the hearty scrub oaks and tall Western sycamore trees during the 1.2-mi (2.4-km) hike.
In the distance, hear the Cuale River thundering around picturesque bends in the forest. With so many incredible sights to take in, your mood stays light and your mind never tires of the fascinating landscape.
Reach the Cuale River and take a dip in the sunlight-dappled water. Then, towel off and hike down the mountain through a region where colorful orchids blanket the forest floor.
After returning to Puerto Vallarta, indulge in a tequila tasting and toast to your magical adventures.
