Enjoy Bahia de Banderas and its splendor starting in Vallarta around 9am, depending on your pick up place. Our first stop is Las Juntas, where we will have a walking tour for you to visit the main plaza, the church and locally owned shops like a tortilla factory, a butchery and more. Many of the workers of the hotels live in this area, so you can really see how people live!
Then we will take the old passage from Bucerias to Valle de Banderas where you will see the main activity of the area: Agriculture. Crop after crop you’ll learn what is needed and how people work in the field. Depending on the season we might see crops of watermelon, papaya, chilly, rice, corn, mango and pineapple among others. Even though this is relatively close to the tourist towns, when driving here it seems so far away! We will stop at Valle de Banderas town on the way, the main village of the area. After that we head to “Boca de Tomates” a beach not yet discovered by the tourist, but very popular by the locals, where you can have a real local lunch. Our suggestion is “Pescado Zarandeado”, Red Snapper so freshly prepared, that you first have to get into the kitchen to see it. (lunch not included but very reasonable priced)
Drive around Bahia de Banderas with different stops at various agricultural crops according to season. This area is well known for many mango plantations, bananas, melon, pineapple, corn, papaya and much more. During this tour we will focus on the country side of the area. We will visit some small villages on the way, the perfect tour to get to know the non touristic side of Mexico!
