It’s best to organize the tour a day in advance. Bring swimsuits, goggles and bug spray.
Be prepared for bugs. Long sleeves and breathable pants are advisable but can be too warm, depending on the time of year.
There’s an early trip and a noon departure.
Pack Lunch. Request group rate instead of paying per person.
Looking for an easy Mexico kids adventure? This Nayarit itinerary is perfect for kids and it won’t consume your whole day. Take a river cruise in the mangroves of Tovara Springs. Start early for a noon departure and pick up some Pan de Banana on your way. Then zip along the river in a panga (fishing boat) with a guide. Spend a little time at a crocodile farm before you head to the swimming hole and restaurant. Make sure to know what time your guide will be picking you up for your return roller-coaster-like boat ride back.
