The only thing better than hiking through the Sierra Madre Occidental in Mexico is horseback riding through it. And on this half-day trip, that is exactly what you will be able to do.

Beginning in Puerto Vallarta, we will make our way to the Sierra Madre. Once there, you will get on horseback and make your way through the area’s collection of peaks and forest. A fantastic mix of relaxing sightseeing with adventurous horseback riding, this trip, which will last for approximately 3 hours, will immerse you in a gorgeous, natural world. Furthermore, because this is not a difficult trip, it is open to people of all levels, even first timers.

During this trip, you will encounter everything from jungle and peaks to wildlife, a river and a majestic waterfall. And you will get to see it all from horseback. And, because this trip begins and ends at Puerto Vallarta, you will also get to enjoy one of the most exciting and vibrant cities in all of Mexico.

Horseback riding in any environment is an experience everybody should try. But on this half-day trip, you will get to enjoy that experience amidst the stunning beauty of the Sierra Madre Occidental of Mexico. To join us on this trip, all you have to do is send a request. We look forward to guiding you.

If you would like to hike through the Sierra Madre, we also offer this half-day trek in El Nogalito.

If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).

What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
