This Hitching & Hiking website is dedicated to the people who live in the colonial towns not far from Puerto Vallarta. Many of whom have never encountered 2 gringos on their back roads. Hitching rides for Margaret & I is’t about saving money,it’s about getting in touch with the local population,who were curious or wanted to practice their English. Since the beginning of our hitching & hiking adventures ,which began over 10 years ago,we’ve gotten rides with doctors, lawyers,mothers with kids & ranch hands.Traveling in and outside of everything from cement trucks to almost every model pick up. The only danger we have ever encountered was climbing in & out of the vehicles. So pack you bags,put on some sun screen & hold onto your hats,cause here we go! We don’t make any arrangements. Only suggestions.
