What you'll do

Follow Us on Instagram @ PuertoVallartaExperiences

We´ll move from our meeting location to Boca de Tomatlán and in the meanwhile we will be practicing Mindfulness.

Mindfulness is a very powerful but also VERY SIMPLE practice, it consists on working and training one single muscle. This muscle is the most important, it is not the biceps neither the abdomen, this muscle is AWERENESS.

BENEFITS:
- Health
- Presence
- Inner peace
- Rest and plenitude

PLEASE NOTE: In case you want to have the experience WITHOUT mindfulness we can let the nature do the work for us :)

We will grab our backpacks in Boca de Tomatlán and start our journey to: COLOMITOS. We will continue practicing mindfulness during our walk through the nature.

We are going to travel through many paradisiacal beaches, like: LA TROZA, PLAYA EL CABALLO and LAS ANIMAS.

We will rest a bit in our final destination (LAS ANIMAS); we will have the opportunity to have lunch while we enjoy the wonderful beach.

At 2:30 we will return to Boca de Tomatlán by boat, and after that to Vallarta in Bus.

P.P.S. I`ll take PROFESSIONAL PHOTOS (like the ones shown in the gallery) that i will share with you in our Instagram Page the day after the experience.

P.P.S.2 As you can see in the pictures, kids and teens LOVE THIS EXPERIENCE! so, if you have kids or grandchildren make sure to bring them.
Other things to note
The experience is from 8:30am to 1:30pm but when we arrive to Las Animas we have 2 options:

1)That you come back with us or...
2)That you stay longer in the Restaurant in order to enjoy the beach chairs, swim, eat or rest at the wonderful hammmocks that are there :)

Where you'll be

Many people who travel to Puerto Vallarta still do not know this places and, IT IS AN EXTRAORDINARY TOUR because we visit beaches (Colomitos, La Troza, Playa el Caballo and Las Animas) that have beautiful sand and the clarity of the ocean is excellent to practice snorkeling.

Withouth mentioning that, when we reach to our final destination we´ll enjoy the famous "pays de yelapa" that are only available here!!!

Ernesto was a great host on this hike, very knowledgeable of the area. We did 2 mindfulness lessons towards the beginning of the hike. We were a private group and had some changes last minute and Ernesto was kindly able to accommodate our requests. I would recommend this activity or another one with him!

I've had amazing experiences all over the world with Airbnb, I feel that most hosts I've had try to give that something extra, but that didn't happen this time. There are several issues with this experience: I have no idea why this experience it's called "Mindfulness to Colomitos and Professional pics" I am very interested in the topic of mindfulness but this was not even mentioned during the experience. Also, I don't think the host understands what "professional pics" mean. In order to take good pics you would need good equipment, his son took one picture of the whole group with a cell phone and that's it..., I took my own equipment so the "professional pics" are not the reason why I went but I feel that many people are being misled. Also, not all costs are disclosed, according to the information provided on the page of the experience, lunch would be provided, which was not the case, only a sandwich and not even water. I was lucky there was a restaurant that accepted credit cards at the last beach we visited, otherwise I would have been really hungry by the time I got back to PV. Furthermore, it was mentioned that snorkels would be provided, but when I wanted to use one, I noticed they were broken/ poorly maintained and really low quality (toys). I also feel that there are small details that make a huge difference, such as showing up on time, not engaging on personal cell phone calls during the experience, showing some courtesy/ concern/ empathy about certain issues...At the end of the experience the host stayed at a restaurant having lunch, he couldn't even be bothered to help me find a boat back to the starting point, and the boat owners tend to overcharge foreigners, so I was there for a while because I didn't have any more cash. The whole time I felt I was more of a nuisance to the host, and not a paying guest.

Una experiencia muy especial. Pudimos observar bellos paisajes junto al mar y visitar las playas. Ernesto fue un guía muy atento y pudo personalizar mucho la experiencia, ajustándose a nuestras expectativas, pues el recorrido lo realizamos en familia con niños chicos.

This hike is a lovely experience and takes you to some of the most beautiful remote beaches. It was a challenging 8 km walk but Ernesto respected my pace and there were plenty of opportunities to stop and rest and smell the roses. We took many pictures of flowers and butterflies and the views were spectacular! Ernesto has a deep understanding of mindfulness and yoga practice which he incorporates into his walks. Thanks for this unique experience!
