PLAYA GRANDE ON HORSEBACK
This is a good tour for people who have done this before, but you don't need to be an expert to do it. We had a great time, and we've only ridden about three times. We were sore for a few days, though.
Ride the La Aguacatera trail to a hidden waterfall (seasonal) where you can swim in the calm pools below. Descend through dense vegetation, which parts to reveal spectacular views of the Sierra Madre mountains. Arrive to the village of Playa Grande, and have lunch at the Playa Grande Village Jungle Restaurant. Good food and nice people. Your first drink is included - even Margaritas!

OUR ADVICE: We did this tour ourselves - that's where all the photos on this page came from. Great trip - our guide, Francisco, was so nice. We had lunch together and laughed and laughed.
The waterfall may be dry during the dry season months of Feb-May but the spectacular views of the Sierra Madre and Banderas Bay beyond make it well worth it.
