n an age where being in contact with nature is increasingly difficult, more travelers are seeking enriching experiences that combine nature and ecology. Puerto Vallarta is one of the few tourist destinations that offers visitors different ecosystems: bay, mountains, rivers and tropical forest- therefore, it is considered one of the best places to practice ecotourism.
Surrounded by a thick jungle and a great diversity of flora and fauna, this city offers an adventurous paradise, whether on land or sea. In the mountains you will find different shades of green, which are home to a large collection of wildlife that includes more than 360 species of birds.
National and international tourists can choose from a variety of tours, from hiking, bird watching and whale watching, to zip lines and ATV tours. It is best to explore these ecosystems with tour companies that have an extensive experience in what they do, such as Canopy River. This 100% Eco tourist company offers several experiences to both, amateurs and professionals.
The most recommended is the zip line tour, where you will fly at maximum speed to 200 meters above the Río Cuales, enjoying the incredible scenery surrounding Canopy River. The tour lasts two hours and it is available every day; we recommend using light clothing and comfortable shoes, plus organic mosquito repellent.
If you enjoy nature and fauna in general, you will certainly find many options of things to do in Puerto Vallarta.
