The Sierra Madre Occidental in Mexico is a sensational mountainous area. And on this half-day, approximately 2 hour long hiking trip, we would like to guide you to the area’s best spots.

Located in the Mexican state of Jalisco, near the famous resort city of Puerto Vallarta, the Sierra Madre is full of fantastic sights, views, wild life, flora and fauna.

Our trip will begin at a designated meeting place in Puerto Vallarta. From there, we will make our way into the Sierra Madre. Once there, you will be thrust into the beauty of nature. You will get to see everything from parrots and macaws to wild orchids and vibrant green forest. There are also a number of great peaks that offer tremendous viewpoints that will make you feel as if you can see the entire world.

Other great aspects of this hiking trip include a visit to the Cuale River, where you can relax and swim, and even a tequila tasting session!

This is a very easy trip. We will only be hiking for approximately 2 kilometers. As a result, it is open to people of all levels.

Hiking through the Sierra Madre is a fantastic opportunity to see nature at its finest. And when you combine that with a visit to the thrilling city of Puerto Vallarta, you are surely in for an adventure you will never forget. To join us on this trip, just send us a request.

What People are Saying about Mexico Adventure Guides-


Daniel and his partner Alex did a great job guiding us, and helping with all the logistics, especially transportation to and from the climb. Alex was a real pleasure to talk with, learn from, and show us the mountain. Thank you, for a great experience!

Daniel was kind enough to pick me up promptly at the airport when I arrived. we drove straight to amecameca and bought a few supplies, we then drove to Popo park and set up camp. Daniel gave a class on crampons, walking sticks and the ice pick and then it was time to sleep and prepare for the early morning hike start. we set off around 0330 and reached the recluso at about 15,500 feet. it was an amazing experience with wonderful views. Thank you Daniel, Alejandro and Yasmin!
