Hike in mountains, beach and virgin jungle
It will be a fantastic hike that will awaken all your senses.

Mindful yoga and hike to private beach
Hiking & yoga! What better way to experience the gorgeous landscapes that Sayulita has to offer. We will hike through the lush jungle taking in the sights. The hike is three miles(5k) round trip. We will pass views that are completely breathtaking. Along the way we will see a large variety of tropical exotic plants, birds, butterflies, and more palm trees than you can imagine. Once we arrive to a private secluded beach we will begin our yoga practice under the trees in the shade. There is nothing like hearing the serene sounds of the waves crashing and birds chirping as you mediate and practice yoga. The yoga class is all levels whether you are a beginner or experienced practitioner this is for you. By connecting mindful movements and the breath we give ourselves the opportunity to disconnect and quiet the mind, taking in all of the elements of nature. You do not need any experience in yoga or hiking to participate in this experience. I’m happy to take beach yoga photos for you after we finish our class. ☺️ if there’s a date or time you’d like that isn’t listed, send me a message and we will make it work :) I also offer private yoga brought to you

Concentraremos nuestra atención e intención frente al fuego antes de entrar al temazcal, en el cuál estaremos a oscuras en 4 intervalos de tiempo. Durante cada intervalo conectaremos con un rumbo y un elemento los cuales se relacionan con áreas de la Vida. Las Piedras Volcánicas o “Abuelitas” que calentamos hasta poner “contentas” o al rojo vivo, son introducidas al temazcal junto a nosotros y son “bañadas” con tés medicinales y el vapor resultante nos ayuda a limpiar nuestro cuerpo, mente y alma. First, we’re going to prepare ourselves mentally, emotional and physically to get into the temazcal, hydrating ourselves with different herb teas and cacao beverages. We’re going to focus on our intention and attention infront of the sacred Fire, in wich we’ll be heating the “grandmas” (Volcanic Rocks) until they’re “happy” wich means they are red hot. we’re getting into the temazcal, wich is a secure space in wich were going to spend 4 intervals of time in total darkness, we’re going to hear and sing sacred chantings, each of this 4 intervals are related with different aspects of live. The “grandmas” (Volcanic Rocks)are comming with us inside, we will shower them with herbal mixes wich will help to clean or body and mind.

You will be able to ride a wide variety of Jungle Singletrack trails.

Surrounded by lush, green jungle, crossing streams, and riding tight, super fun singletracks. We will stop along the way to take in the incredible flora and fauna around us, or try a short technical section. Most of our rides take about 2 hours.

Jungle hike with biologist in wildlife sanctuary
Please contact me to check for additional availability! Come and hike with a biologist through the jungle close to Sayulita. I will take you on a tour to discover the beauty of the diverse fauna and flora of this unique part of Mexico. The 6km long round trail leads you through different types of forest and along riverbeds. You will experience some great views and who knows what wildlife we will encounter? The area is home to more than 100 different bird species, jaguars, coatis, deer and reptiles to name just a few. Natikari is a privately owned wildlife sanctuary only accessible with guides. You will have an absolutely magical nature experience away from the crowds whilst supporting conservation. We will meet at the gas station at the entrance to Sayulita. From there we will start the hike. After about 20 minutes we will reach the wildlife sanctuary Natikari. You will walk a narrow and in places steep jungle trail, so you should be reasonably fit and able to navigate uneven terrain. I can provide some hiking poles. The whole tour lasts about 4 hours. You can also follow me @natikariranchoverde for more info. This hike is not suitable for small kids. Please contact me for shorter options.
The Food of My People: Brunch Tasting Walk
In this culinary tasting walk, we will meander down the cobblestoned streets on the hunt for the tastiest traditional Mexican food in Sayulita. We will visit a señor who only brings out his tradition drink cart out in the morning (if he’s open—no one really knows his hours…), see how carnitas are made, and taste some traditional breakfasts that I and my family grew up with. While walking and filling our stomaches with delicious Mexican treats, we will get the backstory to some of the items we sample to set the cultural perspective. Come hungry, and leave with some knowledge of Mexican food and a full belly. This tour is more than just food; it's a cultural experience! As your guide, my goal is to offer you a unique perspective both in the local cuisine and life in Sayulita in general. Why spend your time on forums online when you have an expert who can take you to experience the best Mexican food and drinks under the Sayulita sun? I love my life in Sayulita, I love my country and I want to share my passion with you!
Birding for beginners
Did you know that the Bahia de Banderas is a hotspot for birds? I will take you into the jungle to introduce you to our rich bird-life in a fun, relaxed and informative experience. This experience is aimed at beginner to advanced birders as I want to share my love for these little critters with you! If you have never done birding before I will give you an introduction on how to use binoculars- you don't need any prior experience. We will meet at the gas station at the entrance of Sayulita. From there we will walk to the private nature reserve Natikari. The dirt road is easy to walk and we can already spot quite a few birds along the way. At the sanctuary we have a great view from an open area to allow for easy birding, a palapa from which you can observe birds while sitting down and a short trail that leads through the denser part of the jungle. Please contact me for alternative dates, starting times or with any questions you might have. The majestic military macaws can only be seen in this area over the summer, over the winter we get a lot of migrant birds from up north and spring is the best time if you want to experience the best bird concerts! April/ May: Breeding season is in full swing and many trees are loosing their leaves which makes it even easier to watch birds. The first military macaws have arrived!
