Canopy tours in Puerto Vallarta

January 12 2012

Doing a canopy tour in Puerto Vallarta is one of the most popular ways to enjoy the area on vacation. The two main canopy tour companies in Puerto Vallarta are Los Veranos and Vallarta Adventures, both providing a different experience. Each tour company takes you into the heart of the Sierra Madre jungle above Puerto Vallarta for a day of communing with nature with transportation included, a bilingual staff, and an informative tour.

The Los Veranos canopy tour is a four and a half hour tour departs from several pick-up spots 2-6 times per day (depending on the location). The tour includes three short and slow “practice zip line cables” to start with a total of 14 zip lines altogether, with the longest one measuring in at a quarter of a mile (400 meters). Not only will you see the jungle canopy, but the Los Veranos canopy tour includes soaring over an amazing jungle waterfall. At the end of the tour, relax in a restaurant, have a shot at the bar, shop for souvenirs, or enjoy the natural water-slides in the river.

The Vallarta Adventures canopy tour lasts four and a half hours. This is the canopy tour for the Indiana Jones or Tarzan fans! Not only will you enjoy zip lining through the jungle canopy but you''ll cross high-elevation suspension bridges, scale what they call the “Crazy Ladder,” and descend via repels. The Vallarta Adventures zip lines are all double cables for added security and safety. Vallarta Adventures canopy tours depart every hour from different locations in both Puerto Vallarta and Nuevo Vallarta.
