Canopy, Tequila and More via Speed Boat
Must do for zip line fans!
February 01, 2023
This was far more than expected! There were 17 zip lines on this course, and it took us an hour and 20 minutes to complete the course with a group of about 28. The team at Los Veranos was friendly and enthusiastic, and they really made the experience great with their help, encouragement and photography. While I don't usual find zip lining strenuous, there was a lot of uphill walking to get from zip line to zip line. Fortunately, we were both in good shape. After completing the course, we enjoyed a high quality lunch, but the cost of lunch was not included in the tour price. Overall, the experience was excellent!
Best excursion on Mexican River vacation

My family chose a zip lining as our excursion in Puerto Vallarta, The speedboat ride was fun and we even saw dolphins on the way over. I highly recommend this vs taking the bus. The tour guides were very friendly and informative and did a great job. Once arriving to the area, we were briefed on the safety precautions. The crew was comical and had us all laughing and enjoying the experience. We enjoyed zip lining, the amazing views and the food afterwards was the best we had on our entire trip!! We loved seeing the monkeys and birds too! The water slides were amazing and we enjoyed these while waiting for our food. Tequila tasting was a hit as well! This was my family’s favorite excursion on our whole trip!

This was a fantastic excursion!! The staff were very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful throughout the entire day. The speed boat ride is a must or you’ll end up riding a bus for an hour to reach the zip line site. We saw 2 pods of grey whales with their calves and our boat driver stopped both times for us to watch them, so that was an added bonus for the excursion. The zip line was great but be prepared to do a lot of stair climbing. The zip line facility was very nice and clean. The restaurant has amazing food and there was a nice area to swim and cool off if you wanted to. By far one of the best excursions I’ve ever been on and will go back when we visit the area again.

Time of My Life

My first ziplining experience! I'm not really in shape, so the uphill hiking at the start of this was truly challenging, and I wasn't alone in that sentiment -- and this was in December, it was in the high 60's...can't even imagine how tough it is in the middle of the summer. The best part is that the guys at Los Veranos were sincerely concerned for me, and took the time and care to make sure I was hydrated and had an amazing time. These are very professional, very safe, very kind/friendly, and very funny guys, especially Mosquito and Carlos. Though I did feel I was going to die after the first 5 minutes of this, I'm so glad that this crew was there to give me the care and the push to experience it. The scenery is absolutely gorgeous. The photos and videos they take are super high quality and from unique vantages. Their restaurant was very good, great tequillas for sale, and the small animal sanctuary was cool. Can't recommend Los Veranos enough! I'll definitely be back.

This was a great tour. Great views of the shore and city from the water on the boat and much better than a bus trip would be. Got to see dolphins on the way back. Loved the zipline with jungle views and the river. Good food and a river to play in at the end

los veranos canopy tour
May 28, 2022
This was the best tour of our 17 day cruise. The group conducting our tour, led by Alex, kept things light and entertaining while we managed the 15 zip lines through the canopy. The boat ride connecting to the short bus ride, was not only quicker than a pure bus ride, but also a lot more fun with great photo ops. After the zip line tour, there was an opportunity to taste tequila, and a small zoo next to a nice flagstone patio with a full menu and bar. It was relaxing after the zip lines to relax under the umbrellas on the patio and enjoy food and beverages before our return trip to Puerto Vallarta via boat. At age 65 we were the oldest couple on the tour, and although there is some climbing involved, I didn't believe it to be excessive or too strenuous, even though I don't consider myself in top physical condition. Great tour. Highly recommend.

Canopy, Tequila and More via Speed Boat
March 18, 2022
I liked that the group was smaller and included children and elderly. Safety was priority, but allowed people to go upside down and together on certain lines if they wanted to. The staff take video and pictures for purchase at the end, but they also allow you to take your own camera/phone. After that there is plenty of time to play in the river, feed and hold some of the animals they have as well as eat and/or drink (not included in price).

Exhilarating and Fun

We loved this excursion. The speed boat ride to the zi line sight is the only way to go. Our ship was late getting into port and we missed our meeting time so no one was at the dock to greet us, but after asking several other operators, we got a hold of the company and they added us to the next tour an hour later. Crew was outstanding. Would definitely do it again!

My partner and I absolutely loved this excursion! Pepe and his team made the ziplining a blast! And if you're debating getting the speed boat, DO IT! It was seriously one of my favorite parts of the trip and almost an excursion in and of itself!

Los Veranos exceeded all my expectations. Well organized and efficient but more importantly, the experience was superb. From the start with the speed boat ride, we were shown views of the coast that were beautiful. The boat crew were wonderful. After the boat we took an open air shuttle up to the canopy. The beauty of the area and the canopy itself is lovely. The facility clean and comfortable. The restaurant food delicious. The zip lines were obviously well maintained, I never felt a moment of fear for my safety. Zipping along over the river gorge and forest was indescribable. But the one aspect that made the tour so enjoyable was the crew. Aldo and his crew are efficient, well trained, and the fun and jokes they bring to the experience made it memorable. I would recommend this excursion to anyone. Definitely well worth the money spent.

Enjoyed every minute of this excursion; the boat ride was great, but the zip line was amazing. Employees were helpful, funny, and very entertaining. Scenery on the zip line was beautiful; tequila tasting was interesting and the restaurant by the river was wonderful, a great place to relax after the zip line. I would do it again!

Awesome Excursion !!!
January 30, 2020
Our 10th cruise and this was top 2 or 3 excursions we have ever been on. Super fun, clean, professional staff and facilities. Zip lines of 800' plus over gorgeous rapids below. After ziplining eat at nice restaurant on site, swim or waterslide into river or pet the beautiful animals they have there. On way back stopped to see island Arcs, sea turtle and huge pod of dolphins. MUST DO

Very clean, nice and safe Zip Line Excursion
January 08, 2020
Pros: *Clean facility, nice restaurant and stuff to do when you're done zip-lining, like the zoo, swimming, etc. *The American owners run their zip line according to US safety standards. There was another zipline company close to theirs, and it looked pretty bad, frankly, in comparison to this one. *The zip line tour guides reminded me of Disneyland's Jungle Cruise guides: lots of comedians with a well-rehearsed patter that kept everybody laughing (albeit nervously because... ZIP LINING) *The speed boat saves you a TON OF TIME. Totally worth it. GET THE TOUR WITH THE SPEED BOAT. *The staff answering the telephone was kind and patient when we couldn't find the speed boat. They stayed on the phone with us until we found it. Con: If you are doing this not through your cruise ship company, beware of differences between ship time vs land time & take the company's number with you in case you can't find the speed boat.

Great excursion experience.

From the moment we got on the speed boat to reaching the zip line location - this excursion was a fast paced experience. It's a great set-up, with a restaurant and tequila tasting at the end of the zip line run, and also a river with slides to cool off in.
Best tour ever
