History, rural life, nature and beach
During this 8 hours tours, we will be visiting 3 towns located to the south of Puerto Vallarta.
El Tuito, an hour south of Puerto Vallarta, is a nice and easy going town. Its economy relies on agriculture and farming. History is on every corner! Mayto is a semi-pristine long beach, where a famous and very important turtle sanctuary is found. Tehuamixtle a small bay, and town. lighthouse, shipwreck and great food.
Stop at local bakery
Tuito: will be visiting the main plaza, Townhall, and church. If open, we might take a peek at a local cheese factory. and sample the delicious panela cheese if they have available
Then we are off to Mayto, it will take about 40 more minutes to reach this beautiful natural setting. A "never-ending" white sand beach, cliffs and blue water. Here we will visit a very important turtle sanctuary: Campamento Tortuguero Mayto, where you'll learn about the importance of sea turtles and their protection.
Our last stop: Tehuamixtle! A short 10 minutes drive will get us to this beautiful smaller bay. Here we will have lunch at a great restaurant (oysters is the town specialty) and have enough time to snorkel (shipwreck) and enjoy the calm waters.
