What to Expect
Begin your trip at a location in Puerto Vallarta or Nuevo Vallarta. Meet your group and board your transfer vehicle to Punta Mita. On arrival, receive a safety briefing from your professional guide, before strapping on your helmet and heading out on your utility task vehicle. Be lead away from the main road to drive through mountain trails, beaches, and creeks on your way to Sayulita. The caged vehicle adds security as you cruise across rugged terrain, passing rural villages, fields, and farms. Pause as you approach Sayulita and rest on a beach, before continuing into the village itself. Take in views of the coastal landscape, then park up to explore on foot. Stroll the streets and break for lunch at a local eatery (own expense). Afterward, buggy back to Punta Mita, enjoying the thrill of the ride, before concluding your journey with a transfer back to the original point of departure.
