Guided visit through the city and tropical forest
Puerto Vallarta is one of the Pacific Gems in Mexico. Well known for its naturally beautiful settings, friendliness, Mexican feeling and safety, this beautiful town has welcomed many travelers. On this tour, you'll get to explore the tourism and the local faces of Vallarta. Marvel at the architecture, the cobblestone streets, the views of the bay. Sculptures, murals, folk art will fill in the art elements. This tour is set for you to learn about Mexico and enjoy wandering in a tropical city.
But there is more than just a city visit. We will go beyond the edges and visit the botanical gardens or add a bit of adrenaline ridding ziplines. So the visit is enhanced by marveling at beautiful flowers, plants, and animals, or thrilling rides through the forest. It's your choice, your adventure!
The tour departs from the lobby of your hotel / cruise ship terminal. Our first stop: a cemetery (to learn about Day of the Dead tradition) and a market to see a traditional Mexican market with fresh products and even taste. Then we will go to "The Malecon" (boardwalk) in downtown Puerto Vallarta. Walk with me and marvel at the different sculptures and architecture. We will stop at the heart of Vallarta, it's the main square, where we will sample the famous TUBA beverage, visit the beautiful Lady of Guadalupe church and the City hall! After that, we will go to the Cuale River, and its island; you'll have some time to do some souvenir shopping at the county souvenir market. Then a panoramic view of the romantic zone by van, before heading south to our forest destination: Botanical Gardens (hiking and flora) or Las Juntas y Los Veranos (zip line and river). Either choice is a great adventure and with enough time for lunch

We really enjoyed everything about our tour with Thalia. One of the reasons we booked with tours by locals is we wanted a personalized experience. Thalia, was great, took us places that bigger tours would not take you. We got to experience the destination instead of just looking and seeing. We got to sample food and drink. Thalia is very knowledgeable about the area and knows the good places to check out. I was wanting a certain souvenir for my mom and she found it for us! Highly Recommend her tours!
