Meet your group at a designated spot in Puerto Vallarta or Nuevo Vallarta, and take a scenic drive to Punta Mita. Located north of Banderas Bay, Punta Mita is home to pristine beaches and top-end resorts. Upon arrival, you’ll receive a safety briefing from an expert guide.
Don your helmet and climb aboard your Polaris RZR UTV. Designed for rugged, off-road adventures, this utility terrain vehicle drives like a car and has safety cages surrounding all passengers for added security, making it ideal for families.
Then, follow your guide and roar your way off the main road as you head north to the seaside town of Sayulita. Drive through mountain trails, creeks and a riverbed along a secluded beach, passing towns, farms and fields along the way.
Stop at the outskirts of Sayulita for a short break. Check out a quiet beach and nearby sights, while drinking coconut water from a freshly cracked gourd (own expense). Light snacks and bottled water are provided en route.
Back in your UTV, drop into the south side of Sayulita for beautiful views of a secluded beach. Drive through town and then park your off-road buggy.
Take some time to explore the small fishing village, known for surfing and unique arts and crafts. Join your guide for a tour of this gem of a town yet undiscovered by hordes of visitors, or wander off on your own and pick up souvenirs. Soak up the relaxed vibe and sit down at one of many appealing restaurants for lunch (own expense).
After lunch, you’re back in your buggy, splashing and bouncing your way back to Punta Mita. From there, enjoy transport back to your departure point.

poor review, we waited two hours in the parking lot in Nueva Vallarta, transportation never showed up for over 2 hours late, broken down truck. We were told to wait and we would get a private tour and extra time on ATV. We were only on the ATV for 1/2 hr on the trail in Sayulita and the other time we were promised we were left in Sayulita for only an extra 1/2 hr after they were extremely upset with us for having to wait extra time. Most of our time was spent on the shuttle to Sayulita and from Punta Mita.We got no offer for a discount or a refund after being inconvenienced for over 2 hr delay and our inconvenience.
Our family did the Punta Mita and Sayulita Adventure. It was four of us utilizing one UTV which was plenty of room. We were greeted in town by Armando and Checke which both took great care of us from start to finish. During the bus trip to the trial site Armando was very informative about Puerto Vallarta's culture and history. They furnished bottle water, fruit and all the equipment needed for the adventure. The trails and views were amazing utilizing the mountain side to the fullest. I would recommend this tour for people looking for UTV adventure.
Great trip. Trails were better than we expected. The rain forest was great to ride in, great view from the top. The staff was great.
More rough driving than we expected, but fun.
Disappointed in Sayulita no good place to stop, too much traffic and confusion in the town.
