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.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
