Select Date and Travelers

Appreciating Mexico’s varied landscape can be difficult on an excursion that sticks to the main roads. Gain insight into the natural environment around Puerto Vallarta with an off-road trip to Sayulita by UTV. Enjoy a thrilling ride while traversing a riverbed, mountain trails, and creeks, and admire the rural and coastal landscapes along the way.
  • Keep replenished with complimentary light snacks and water available throughout
  • Discover the village of Sayulita, famous for its culture and beaches
  • Gain insight into Mexico’s rugged natural terrain
  • Stay safe under the guidance of a professional guide
What to Expect
Begin your trip at a location in Puerto Vallarta or Nuevo Vallarta. Meet your group and board your transfer vehicle to Punta Mita. On arrival, receive a safety briefing from your professional guide, before strapping on your helmet and heading out on your utility task vehicle. Be lead away from the main road to drive through mountain trails, beaches, and creeks on your way to Sayulita. The caged vehicle adds security as you cruise across rugged terrain, passing rural villages, fields, and farms. Pause as you approach Sayulita and rest on a beach, before continuing into the village itself. Take in views of the coastal landscape, then park up to explore by foot. Stroll the streets and break for lunch at a local eatery (own expense). Afterward, buggy back to Punta Mita, enjoying the thrill of the ride, before concluding your journey with a transfer back to the original point of departure.

We had a blast from start to finish. Drove the UTVs thru terrain and made a stop to take in the beautiful view on top of a peak. Then drove to Sayulita and had time to explore this cute little beach town and even had time for a quick bite n drink. You have plenty of driving time
