We had a great time on the Sierra Madre' jungle expedition. The ride alone to the jungle was interesting with a stop in some small town so that we could get that experience (as well as quickly see hand-made tortillas being made).
The jungle tour was very interesting as our guide pointed-out all kinds of information on wildlife, insect, and trees/plants. The free lunch was basic sandwiches with drinks.
The tourguides did a superb job informing us as well as keeping us entertained.
The excursion was well-worth the money... I believe about $500 pesos each.

Well I have been to Puerto Vallarta a number of times and didn't want to spend what little time we had in PV on a tour, so we decided to head straight to the tequila factory. I had called ahead of time to get information on the location and how to quickly get from the pier to the factory.
So we got off the tender and headed straight to the taxi stand. 5 minutes (and $5 USD) later, we arrived at Aquí Jalisco. And wouldn't you know it, a tour was going on at the same time...so we tagged along.
Received information on the history ot tequila, how it's grown and the different versions made from the agave plant. After that, we went into the tasting room to sample different tequilas. 10 - 12 shots later, we staggered to the counter to purchase some for taking home.

We went on a day trip offered by Orbitz.com and found it to be a great time. For $25 a person we got a little taste of everything in PV. A nice description of the history of PV and the major landmarks. We had an opportunity to do a little shopping, treated to open bar, and visited a Tequila Distillery. It was a full day.

A day-long bus tour, which included walking around Puerta Vallerta with a charming guide talking about history and such is something I would really recommend.
We also drove out into the jungle a ways where you could go hiking, swimming or have lunch. It was just after the rainy season and pretty muddy to go hiking, and I had a great seafood plate (everything seemed so fresh) lunch under a thatched restaurant there. (I can't remember the name)

You will learn about the manufacturing process, You will go on to a traditional tequila factory where the old-fashioned methods of producing tequila will be demonstrated, and of course samples will be given. They will teach you how to properly drink tequilla: ..Breathe in with your nose, hold your breath... drink it and then exhale through your mouth
ONE TEQUILLA!, TWO TEQUILLA, THREE TEQUILLA, FLOOR!!!!!

This was a lot of fun. A group of us took an ATV tour that lasted a better part of the day. We started out from town and our to the desert . We traveled through lush river beds, dry river beds, through an old town and then to the old tequila factory where, yes, we tasted different tequilas.
Going through the small town was quite humbling. Not only is this old Mexico, but so many of these people still live without running water or electric. We stopped for a soda and to use the restroom. Outside the restroom sat a little boy taking tips for handing us paper. Tony gave the little boy $2 and the little boy was so excited. Makes you really think about how lucky you are.
At the tequila factory there is an authentic local Mexican restaruant where they cook everything in front of you on fire stoves. GET SOMETHING TO EAT. It was wonderful.

I was there in Sept. and I had the gumption to try an adventure tour and naturally I did some research and found that the number one tour operator in PV is Vallarta Adventures and so I set up to do a few tours with them and they were all fantastic. The hardest part is deciding which tours to do because they offer so many amazing things...from swimming with dolphins to jungle hiking to flight seeing to anything you could imagine...they do it...and professionally...I was blown away.....check out their website if you´re planning on coming here. THANK ME LATER!

We rented a car and decided to do our own sightseeing, which if you really want to see outside of town, you must rent a vehicle and explore. This is Los Arcos, we snorkeled around these rocks, and that particular day, the currents were shifting and the water was murkey and there were lots of jellyfish in the water.

South of Mismaloya, just past Le Kliff restaurant, there is a beach (Boca de Tomatlan) where you can grab a beer and then a water taxi to Las Animas.
The ride is short (5-10 minutes) and the beach is small and charming. Just hanging out for an hour is fun. Last trip I tried parasailing which was easy and an amazing view of the area.
For those who are not so adventerous or who do not want to get stuck on an all day adventure, I highly recommend.

As we drove by on our way south out of Puerto Vallarta after Mismaloya Beach, we trekked up the mtns, stopped at road side restaurant, walked around, saw some hill fires, and then I spotted a cross on the side of the road, blue glitter shrine, (there are many of these on the side of the road), and though we'd look over the edge on our way back, and discovered there was a beautiful water fall, which it took 2hrs to climb down to, it was nice to dip our feet in the pool to cool off.
