Come and join us on an exclusive adventure in the jungle close to Sayulita. Our experienced guides will take you on a tour to enjoy the beauty of the diverse fauna and flora of this part of Mexico. Our tours are small with a maximum of 8 people, or if you wish we can arrange for private tours as well.

Meeting point is at Smoker’s Paradise (on Avenida Revolucion, opposite the police station) in Sayulita, from where our shuttle will take you to the start point of the trail (appr. 10 minute car ride). The hike lasts about 2 hours and by the end we will have some refreshments waiting for you at our jungle garden and you will have some more time to enjoy the tranquility of nature, observe the wildlife and just relax.

Shinrin yoku

MXN $1600 per person (USD $80)

Come and have a forest bath - because science says so!
Shinrin Yoku - the Japanese practice of experiencing nature with all your senses is becoming more and more popular due to its many benefits for our bodies and souls. Getting out into nature can reduce stress, anxiety, lower blood pressure, boost your immunity, make us less aggressive and more kind, more creative and improve our overall wellbeing. 
When you book our Shinrin Yoku tour, there are a few differences to our jungle expedition.

Firstly, we will leave our phones switched off during the experience, or even better: leave them at home! Our guides will ensure you get the most out of your time by encouraging you to take in nature with all of your five senses.

Secondly, we will suggest breathing exercises and practice mindfulness rounded up with some stretches and hammock time. You have heard right, science says you should spend more time in a hammock watching the world go by! Apart from a few words of guidance, we encourage our guests to walk in silence. There will be some time at the end to share experiences and answer questions.What could be a better start of your holiday than a nature reset, allowing your brain to relax and recharge. You recharge your phone every day, so why not learn a few techniques you can take home and use wherever there are trees?

Meeting point is at Smoker’s Paradise (on Avenida Revolucion, opposite the police station) in Sayulita, from where our shuttle will take you to the ranch (appr. 10 minute car ride). The guided walk lasts about 2 hours and of course we will have some refreshments waiting for you at our jungle garden. You will have some more time to enjoy the tranquility of nature, observe the wildlife and just relax in one of our chill-out areas. 

The whole experience lasts about 4 hours from pick up to drop off, but don't plan other appointments too tightly, you might just fall asleep in a hammock and we don't have the heart to disturb you!

Have you ever wondered who is making all that noise in the morning, but you don't really know that much about birds? We invite you to have breakfast at the ranch while introducing you to a few of our feathered friends. The breakfast is aimed at nature enthusiasts with non or little knowledge of the local birds. The setting is comfortable and if you have difficulties walking - don't worry- we will hear and see a great diversity of birds from the comfort of our palapa and the garden. No need to carry a lot of equipment through the jungle! We provide guides and we have a few binoculars. If you have your own, please bring them. You might also want to bring a camera.

There are two great apps we recommend: Merlin Bird ID and eBird. Merlin is a great reference tool that has an ID function and will give you a short description of the bird with photos and song samples. Depending on your location you can download a bird package. These are quite big, so if you want to use the app on the ranch, then it makes sense to download it with a good wifi connection before your tour.

With e-bird you can log the birds you have seen and heard and upload that list to a global database. This type of "citizen science" is valuable to monitor changes in distribution and abundance. We are happy to show you how to use the app. Again, please download the app beforehand and create a profile. 

If you need any help with this you are welcome to contact us and we will assist you!

This tour also includes transport from and to Sayulita, a breakfast containing fruits, yoghurt, granola, chilaquiles and of course coffee. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions in advance.
