Sierra Madre ATV Adventure from Puerto Vallarta

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Travel by ATV through quaint Mexican villages and along the Cuale River into the lush Sierra Madre Mountains. Leave the tourist areas of Puerto Vallarta behind and explore the real Jalisco! This unique ATV adventure is one of the most popular tours and will be a day you won't  forget!
  • Drive your own ATV or ride as a passenger from Puerto Vallarta 
  • Visit outlying towns in Jalisco that are difficult to find on your own 
  • Views of the Puerto Vallarta area from the Sierra Madre mountain range 
  • High-quality photos and video from the tour provided at no additional cost
What to Expect
Meet your group at a central location in Puerto Vallarta. Your guide gives a short safety briefing, hand out helmets and gear, and ensure that everyone is comfortable operating their ATV. You’ll even get a chance to test drive the ATV before starting the tour. The adventure begins with a ride along the malecon (waterfront promenade) and through the old town of Puerto Vallarta. Next you’ll take back roads out of the city and travel through outlying villages. Midway through the ride there will be a stop for snacks (own expense). Continue through the countryside to arrive at the foothills of the Sierra Madre mountain range. Splash through rivers and follow rugged jungle trails up the side of the mountain. You’ll have just enough time to take in the view before starting the return trip to Puerto Vallarta.

Yes, but it’s much more fun alone! They’re really easy to drive and the guides walk you through every aspect but if you still want to double up you can

Yes, absolutely. I rode with our young adult son (who doesn't drive) on the back. They have quite a number of 2-seater atv's. Enjoy, we had a blast!
