Our newest day tour: Vist the La Peñita Market ("Tianguis") , Sayulita, and Riviera Narayit
Shop till you drop and visit a fantastic community project!!
We leave in the morning from our office in Old Town Puerto Vallarta, with a second
pick up at Walmart and for our friends in Nayarit a third pick up in Bucerias. From
there on we will head to one of the most famous markets in the area: the Market in La
The market in La Peñita is really a must for those visiting our area. Many local artists
offer handmade jewelry, Huichol Art, Oaxacan rugs, and many other items, as well as
fruit, bread, honey and several regional specialities.
At the market you have time on your own to buy and see the things that you would like
to take home. After the market, we will take you to San Pancho, where we will visit the
"Entre Amigos" Project**, a community Center which is probably one of the most
organized Charity Projects in Mexico.
Then we continue to Sayulita, the village where people come especially to surf, is one
of the most charming villages in the area. Do some more shopping here, have lunch,
go to the beach, have a Chocobanana (the best you will ever try!), see the iguanas or
simply have something to drink. We will head back to Vallarta after your free time.
Depending on traffic, you will be back around 5pm.

** About Entre Amigos:
Entreamigos is a very successful community project that has attracted participants
and followers from all over the world, including the World Economic Forum, the team
from Cirque du Soleil, and many others.
Founder Nicole Swedlow, or one of the Volunteers will take us on a guided tour of this
impressive, sustainably designed, and award winning education center. Starting this
winter, Superior Tours Vallarta will visit entreamigos every week as part of our tour to

You will be amazed at what people at the entreamigos community center can make...
fun and crazy items that can't be found anywhere else in this region... and all made
from re-used or recycled materials. There is a store where they sell some of this
amazing stuff, so don't forget to bring some extra money for shopping!
Entreamigos also has second store, called the 'Recicla Shop,' that sells second-hand
items to fund their educational projects. So gather up your gently used clothes and
household goods and bring them with you. Your donated items will be used for an

We went with you to the
Tonala market just last
year and enjoyed it so
much. Unfortunately, this
year we were here only
one week, and therefor
we were so happy that
you offer the tour to La
Penita.. The market there
was amazing as well.
Hector was a very nice
guide to spend the day
with, muchas gracias!
