I have done the usual tourist trips (Canopy tour, ATV, Yelapa,snorkeling...)on past visits. Can you suggest off the beaten path activities?


City: Puerto Vallarta

State: Jalisco

Country: Mexico


There is an older, white haired German man who has lived in PV for years. He walks on the beach and talks to tourists about taking a boat trip with him. He goes to all the beaches the big tour boats go, but with him, there will be 8 people max. He rents a panga from Mismaloya and will take you to Las Animas, Quimixto etc.

I booked with him a few years ago, and it was amazing. We walked barefoot through a jungle, up to a gorgeous waterfall, he climbed a coconut tree barefoot to bring down some for us. He was great, the day was awesome, and if you ever see him around, I highly encourage you to go with him!
