ITINERARY:

Arrive into beautiful Puerto Vallarta and relax before we head for burritos and margaritas! We depart at 5PM for Punta Monterrey (approximately an hour) where we will have our first group dinner and talk about the week ahead.

We enjoy an early yoga session before breakfast then hop on our bikes for a ride to nearby San Pancho where we enjoy drinks and ice cream. Our van is waiting to take us back to the resort for lunch and a free afternoon for surfing, snorkeling or relaxing on the beach. Tonight we head to nearby Sayulita for Salsa and margaritas!

Today we enjoy yoga, then a bike ride to the nearby village of Las Lomas and the surrounding jungle and coastal mountain area. Following our ride we have the opportunity to participate in a local community project improving the infrastructure of the village (a % of our revenues will be used to purchase materials for this project). But breath easy, if you'd rather sit on the beach, you can do that as well.

Today we say goodbye to our bikes, and hello to a traditional fishing boat which will take us on a tour of the Marieta Islands. We'll stop at a secluded beach where we can swim, explore caves and relax on the beach. We head back to home base for lunch, and have a free afternoon.

Today we head towards the old mining town of San Sebastian with a stop on the way for a tequila tour. At 4,500 feet, San Sebastian provides crisp, cool air and a stunning view. After lunch in the main square we'll hop on our bikes for a great ride in the hills around the town. Tonight we have a traditional Mexican meal and enjoy the cool crisp air of this majestic place.

Today we enjoy one last (almost all downhill) thrilling ride from San Sebastian, Our van meets us at the bottom and transfers us to Puerto Vallarta where our adventure ends.
