Victor and I decided to book an excursion for a day and add some adventure to our trip. Since Victor is a huge Jeep fan he thought a 4×4 adventure would be pretty neat. I did some searching and found that Puerto Vallarta Tours, a good reputable booking agency here in town, had a Jeep Safari listed on their website.
Booking the excusion was easy, just requiring me to use my visa and within 24 hours a representative would email me a confirmation ticket with instructions on where to meet. I did call them with a question as well and they were extremely helpful. I would use them again for sure. Plus it appeared we had a very good rate already negotiated compared to other websites.
The Jeep and driver met us a few blocks away from our condo. The reason we went with this excursion was that it allowed the guests to drive the Jeep themselves, rather than be driven. We all got in, buckled up and heading out to the country side.
Now this wasn’t a 4×4’ing trip like we had thought, but rather a drive in the country to a few villages, a tequila farm and a crocodile and alligator reservation area. Still, it was nice to do something different and Victor did get to do a little off roading with our driver’s consent.
Our driver, by the way, was excellent. His name was Pepe and was a funny, laid back and very knowledgeable tour guide. He even let us stop off at Home Depot to look for a plant for our planter!
The entire trip took about 4 hours. We are seasoned excursion people and had already did most of the sights on other trips, so we did not spend a lot of time in the villages or Tequila Farm. But, if you have never been out of Puerto Vallarta and looking for an excursion, I would recommend booking a Jeep Safari.
