Puerto Vallarta has a few hidden treasures and sometimes they are not so easy to find, this is the case of “El Eden”. Located in the crystal clear waters of the Mimaloya river you can find this beautiful spot in the middle of the jungle.
It was placed on the international map by the movie “Predator”, one of the first movies that featured the popular action hero Arnold Schwarzenegger in 1987. The drive to this amazing place is lush and full of nature, going up hill for a few kilometers driving around the mountains on cobble stone roads and dirt roads, just by itself is actually a very fun trip around the jungle.
The river has worn down the huge rocks and formed a natural mini lagoon with huge rocks around it, the same rocks can be used as a slide to jump in to the water for a nice splash in the fresh water.
This is a hikers paradise as well, going up and down the river jumping from rock to rock seems to be one of the favorite things to do for all visitors.
El Eden is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the jungle that goes down all the way and meets the ocean. Delicious seafood dishes are served in the restaurant prepared the traditional Puerto Vallarta style for your enjoyment. This restaurant was the set for the movie that was previously mentioned and still has “memorabilia” that will bring back your memories of this film.
