If getting off the beaten path while looking for a little adventure is appealing to you, take this opportunity to travel back in time, when life was less hectic and the simple events of each day had greater significance. Venturing away from the suburbs of Vallarta in your specially designed Mercedes Benz all-terrain vehicles, your off-road voyage of discovery begins as you are taken to the Vallarta Botanical Gardens. Admire Mexico's rich flora including cacti, delicate orchids and even strangler figs and discover fascinating examples of unique plants.
You will continue the tour to the 16th-century village of El Tuito. Take in the sights of El Tuito on a short guided walking tour. Admire the colorful facades of the buildings and learn about the history and culture of this small mountain village. Then, stop by an organic farm to relax and enjoy a delicious BBQ lunch and an open bar.
Afterwards, visit a local distillery specializing in raicilla - a well known spirit among Puerto Vallarata and the villages surrounding the Sierra Madre. Enjoy a guided tour and sample some raicilla - similar to tequila, while admiring the beautiful mountain scenery, before heading back to Puerto Vallarta.
Don't miss this eye-opening day that will invigorate your senses and offer you a window of discovery within a safe, fun-filled environment.

This tour described was not the tour that we got. The tour we signed up for was a tour of the botanical gargen and then a raicilla factory. The garden was beautiful but not the large Puerta Viallarta botanical gardens we thought it would be and there was no Raicilla factory. Instead we toured petroglyphs and an old Mexico town. Definitely not what we would have signed up for. Our guide was very nice and knowledgeable but i woild have liked to do the tour advertised here instead of the one we went on.
The trip took us to many interesting little spots we would have never stopped at on our own. Be prepared to ride in a bumpy, hot, noisy truck, but it was all part of the adventure. The entire day was very enjoyable. The food was great and we got to meet a lot of interesting people along the way. A very nice way to spend a day while in Puerta Vallarta if you want to get away from the crowds on the beach for a day.
Our driver Enrique and guide Adriana were great. The tour was a full day but had many different activities to keep us entertained.
We loved the Sierra Madre Jeep Adventure tour! We had our two boys, ages 14 and 11 along with us and we all learned so much about Mexico, it's culture, people and history. Our guide Gabriel and driver Fluffy were awesome, very knowledgeable and made the adventure even more fun. Definitely recommend this tour and our special guide and driver!
The guide, ride, food were good, but I wanted to see more of life in small towns.
We had a great time --- seeing the Mexican people as they live was fantastic. The ride was great but the star was our guide Samantha --- she answered our questions and told us about the history of the villages that we visited. The Mexican people we met and their way of life, although simple, was beautiful.
