Extreme ATV Experiences near Puerto Vallarta Mexico

Extreme ATV Experiences

If you’re taking a vacation in Puerto Vallarta, you’ll find several different ways to explore all that Banderas Bay has to offer. However, few options offer the exhilarating experience of trekking through the cascading mountains or cruising the sandy beaches like extreme ATV riding does.

So now the question is, how do you know which ATV experience to choose?

That would depend on the type of experience you’re looking for as well as the where you’re staying in the bay.

Listed below are two of my favorite ATV tour companies:

Rancho Mi Chaparrita - Sayulita


This is a killer ATV riding experience through the mountains, beaches, jungles and town of Sayulita.

This tour is approximately 2 hours long depending on the group size. Expect to climb steep mountain trails, cruise the wide, sandy beaches of Sayulita (Mi Chaparrita is the only eco-tourism approved ATV company in Sayulita), and ride through jungles of Monkey Mountain.
