Select Date and Travellers
(Price varies by group size)
2 travellers
Take an off-road romp through the back roads of Punta Mita from Puerto Vallarta or Nuevo Vallarta. Drive or ride in a personal UTV (utility terrain vehicle), a 4WD vehicle that handles like a car and is perfect for couples or families. Following a guide, bounce and bump your way through mountain trails and creeks to Sayulita, a fishing village with a vibrant surfing and arts scene. Walk about the largely undiscovered seaside getaway with a guide or on your own. Round-trip transport from Puerto Vallarta/Nuevo Vallarta to Punta Mita is included.
  • 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.
