The Only Tours – ATV Tours  Here is the information about our ATV Tours.

Meet at my place 15 minutes prior to start of tour for instructions on ATV operating features and safety procedures.
Receive a brief description of the tour.
The tours are approximately 3.5 hours in length but can be customized for duration and terrain at your group’s (minimum 4) request.
Some of the ATVs are equipped to ride two people comfortably.
Helmets, bandanas and goggles are available.

These are fully guided tours designed and tailored to your experience and abilities riding an ATV. I’ve been operating tours in the area since 1997 and I’m familiar with all the area’s terrain.  You’ll explore ranch country, rivers, dunes and less- populated beaches with time allowed for photos, swimming or further exploring and hiking if requested.  The ATV fleet is modern and routinely maintained for safety and reliability along the trails.

We can also custom design a tour at your request. I have extensive knowledge of the Jalisco terrain surrounding the Melaque/Barra area and beyond.

These ATV excursions have become very popular with visitors over the last few years with many people booking more than once. Their feedback has been very favorable.  We respect our neighbors when riding through the few populated areas and along the beach. Our priority is for our clients to have fun and enjoy the many scenic areas that are off the usual tourist paths.

This season in addition to our regular tours, we are offering overnight ATV trips into the mountains.  One includes trailering to La Villa Purificación, then ATVing 1.5hrs up into the mountains to Villas Cacoma.  Solar powered (No Cell or WiFi) accommodations vary from hotel style to 3-bedroom fully equipped cabins with fire pits and grills for BBQing.  We bring the food & supplies.  Everything is clean and well maintained.  There are plenty of fun activities for anyone in reasonability good health to participate in.  These include 9 impressive Zip Lines, one being amongst the longest in Latin America.  Further up the mountain, there is a Canopy Tour consisting of more Zip Lines, Cable Bridges and Repelling.  Another series of cable walking bridges leads to a waterfall with bathing pool, as well as opportunities for more ATVing, hiking & sight-seeing among the pines.  It's a guaranteed different adventure.  Email or drop by for more information.

The Only Tours – Beach Tour  Here are the details for the snorkeling and boogie boarding tour.

This is a great tour for all ages. From snorkeling to boogie boarding and exploring the coral reefs of Tenacatita. Years ago a few caiman (fresh water crocodiles) were introduced to the area and today there are many of them in the 14 foot range in the brackish water around La Manzanilla.  This 8 hour day trip will introduce you to all of this.  All of your water gear is supplied for this one, or bring your own if you have it.  The reefs around Tenacatita abound with fish and coral delights.
