When visiting Mexico, there is a place you cannot miss: the Monkey Mountain. Join us, on this unforgettable hike from Puerto Vallarta, in the Riviera Nayarit.

The Monkey Mountain is located north of Puerto Vallarta, very close to the Sayulita beach, on the gorgeous coast of the Banderas Bay. This natural paradise is the biggest hill, at the south of Punta Mita. And from its summit, we’ll get a hypnotizing 360º view of the coastline and beaches of the Riviera Nayarit.

Our adventure begins with a short ascent of about one hour across the wild trails of the Monkey Mountain. Even though the hike is uphill, it will be through a semi-shaded area, so it will be quite pleasant. Also, it is the perfect way to admire all the local flora and fauna. Here we’ll encounter many exotic birds, different type of butterflies and lizards, along with tropical trees. So your guide will explain you all about the ecosystem here and any questions you may have about the area.

Then, once we get to the summit of the Monkey Mountain, we will get a very well deserved rest, and enjoy a snack and beverages to regain our energies. What’s more, we’ll enjoy the most breathtaking sceneries. Plus, it is the most ideal spot for the perfect pictures.

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.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



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.
