Parrots, macaws, and orchids are among the flora and fauna you're likely to see on this 2-hour hiking adventure in the Sierra Madre Occidental. Explore the natural wonders of this region with a guide, then cool off in the Cuale River and follow-up with a tequila-tasting session.
What to Expect

Depart in the morning or afternoon with pickup from central meeting points around Puerto Vallarta — Marina Vallarta (Collage Disco), Nuevo Vallarta, Plaza Las Glorias, or Centro (downtown) — depending on the option selected at time of booking.

You'll head deep into the mountains of the Sierra Madre Occidental and embark on a small-group, guided hike covering just over 1 mile (2 km). Search for species of parrots and macaws in their natural habitat, and learn from your guide about the extensive flora, which includes a variety of orchids unique to the region of the Sierra Madres. 

Then take a break in an oasis by the Cuale River where you have the opportunity to swim and cool off before hiking back. Top off the experience with a tequila-tasting session.

You're returned to your starting point at the conclusion of the tour.
