What people are saying about Nuevo Vallarta

What a fun day! We chose to do all three activities. I think the ziplining was my favorite. The views were stunning! The staff was incredibly friendly and made the day extra fun. Good food and good times. Highly recommend.

We had a wonderful time horseback riding, zip lining and ATV riding through the back parts of Puerto Vallarta. The excursion ended with an authentic and delicious Mexican meal. Our young teenagers LOVED it all!

This was so much fun. Horse back riding was a little king - my booty hurt. Zip lines and ATVs were awesome! Must do.

The staff is incredible. The food they make for us is delicious. All the activities were so fun and relaxing.

Excellent customer service… so much fun. Highly recommended.
