Hey DT's,
I was away on vacation in Puerto Vallarta, Mex., with the family but I had to get some riding time in. :D
I found a guide Rogelio, owner of http://www.ecoridemex.com and excellent rider and off we went to San Pedro trail.
Image

This was a climbing trail, weather in the mid 90's at 9:00 am and humidity at 100%. :shock: We went thru 6 different river crossings and started the climb on fireroads, we climbed for 5 mi. and got to 1700'.
Image
Image

We saw some beautiful views of the jungle and mountains.
Image

Then we started to descend and crossed more rivers and got to a very nice
and cool waterfall, we took a very well needed dip. :lol:
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

In one part of the waterfall the water was very deeeeeep :lol:
Image

This ride was very different from what we're used to, very difficult to climb with
the high humidity, and the scenery so different, it's very green and wet not dry and dusty.
Excellent experience. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Looks like a nice change of pace from the usual TRs. The scenery is gorgeous. So cool that you got to ride outside of the usual spots.
