This amazing jungle/ natural reserve its a most visit if you are close to San Francisco, Nayarit. Its only 1 hour away from Puerto Vallarta. The ecotour takes your breath away with 3 hours travel enjoying the northen most Jungle of the world. You will walk in a comfortable path watching the flora and most of the fauna of the garden: 120 different fruit threes, bromelias, orchids, ferns, cactus, 25 mammals, 120 birds, 300 butterflies and thousands of insects, watching the see as background. The information is very interesting because tells the history of the indigenous people, the Sierra de Vallejo and the State of Nayarit. The tour guides are locals and love their land. At the end, and after a few brakes to rest you will get to the Orchids Sanctuary, a collection of more than 700 plants that will fill your eyes and nose with beautiful images and fragrances. The tour ends with a feeling that you have to come back soon to witness how the garden changes each season.

We loved the tour! Incredible walking through the jungle with amazingly knowledgeable and passionate guide. The orchids were beautiful and it was great to learn about the flora and fauna of the region. A definite highlight on our trip in San Pancho. Definitely recommended!

We had a wonderful tour with Alejandro & friends. They were very hospitable, took plenty of time to describe the unique jungle location. They were especially excited when I proposed to my girlfriend in their greenhouse! We look forward to joining them again soon.
