We departed from a small beach town just south of La Penita, Kayaked for about an hour along the shoreline...saw lots of birds, fish, even a whale off in the distance... After arriving at Paradise beach (a small isolated beach), we... More

We hiked up Monkey Mountain with Steve in late January 2017 - great trip. Steve does an excellent job of providing insights and information about the area and local flora and fauna. Great view from the top both with vistas of Bahia de Banderas, Punta Mita and Sayulita.

Awesome 4 hr hike up Monkey Mountain with our guide & owner, Stephen. Definitely plan a day trip to Sayulita and check out the different hikes offered by Mexitreks. Monkey Mt. was a challenging but a well-worth the effort experience! You can easily spend several hours checking out the shops and then learn how to surf and relax on the... More

We went on the day trip to go snorkelling by Coral Island, north of Sayulita. Arturo was our guide. It was a great day! We first went out looking for whales, and found a pod of humpbacks - fabulous. Then to Coral Island, where we went snorkelling. I saw quite a few different tropical fish - and a big spotted... More

This kayaking trip was really fun and well worth it. MexiTreks was very accommodating and professional. Arturo, our guide, was wonderful--helpful, knowledgeable, always ready to answer questions and help out whenever needed. The scenery along this part of the coast is amazing, and Paradise Beach was very peaceful. We saw some wildlife, even a stingray on the surface feeding. A... More

The trip was accompanied by very knowledgeable and professional guide. The area is spiritual and very interesting. But trip is way too short and not really a hiking. out of 6 hours the "hiking" portion was about 40 mins one way

Hi Maria, Thank you for your review. My apologies that you were not completely satisfied with the hike. The Alta Vista hike is listed on our website as an "easy" hike - if you would have informed us that you wanted something more challenging prior to booking the tour, we would have suggested something a bit more challenging for you...

We found Mexitreks via our keenness for an environmentally friendly organisation, and several great reviews. We were not disappointed! Our hike up Monkey Mountain was fascinating and our guide, Arturo, was full of information and enthusiasm. The view at the top is unmissable. We then went on a wonderful kayaking tour along a short stretch of coast to a very... More

I've done the kayaking tour with Stephen and Mexitreks a couple times now. It's an easy paddle out along a volcanic bluff. You go past a point with an awesome look at a deserted beach beyond. Then back track to Paradise Beach. A small gem of a beach, tucked away. You can hike above the bluff for an awesome panoramic... More
