The perfect combination of nature and culture, this tour is a must for anyone visiting Puerto Vallarta or the Riviera Nayarit!
We start out with a visit to one of Mexico’s most impressive botanical gardens, where you can enjoy a tour through the grounds, or simply take it all in at your own pace. As well as an impressive collection of plants native to the region, witness Mexico’s most complete orchid collection and exoctic plants from around the world. There is also time to take a dip in the river or enjoy a hike along one of the forest trails. If you are interested in bird-life, don’t forget your binoculars!
After a delicious lunch at the botanical gardens we continue to the quaint town of El Tuito. Founded in the 16th Century, this relaxed town boasts a pretty plaza and plenty of history, and is surrounded by spectacular mountainous scenery. You will get a feel for traditional Mexico as you wander the streets of this beautiful place.
An extra highlight of this trip is a visit to an art and handicrafts gallery in El Tuito, where you can view and purchase beautiful pieces created by local artists and artisans.
