Join us on a magical day of hiking and snorkeling in the stunning Bahía de Banderas in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. On this trip, you'll get to enjoy both the tropical coastline as well as the lush forest of the area.

The day will begin at Boca de Tomatlán, a small fishing village. From here, we'll follow an old path through the mountains. Along the way, you'll get beautiful sneak peeks of the bay and see interesting flora and fauna, such as fig trees and iguanas.

We'll keep walking until we reach the sandy shores of Colomitos Beach, our spot for snorkeling. It's a small secluded beach but home to a lot of interesting undersea life. This includes sea urchins and pufferfish among others. You may even be lucky to see stingrays or turtles.

After we snorkel we'll take a little bit of time to enjoy the beach and have a snack.  Then, it'll be time to start the hike back to our start point.

This hike covers 3 km in total. The walk is not overly strenuous. However, there are uneven patches and some loose rock and debris, so you'll need to be surefooted.

This trip is a beautiful way to combine two excellent activities in a stunning setting. Make the most of your beach vacation, get in touch today to book!

I am very pleased with Explore-Share! This was my first international climb, and the communication and response time were great. Herbie is a very skilled guide and very efficient. The entire booking process & payment was smooth. I will definitely use Explore-Share again. Thank you.

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

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
