ARMT is a mountain biking event that promotes sport and family life. That is why we offer our brokers an offer for couples. Wives. Girlfriends or companions For only 700 USD (dollars) your companion can be present in each area of the ARM enjoying meals and lodging. As well as waiting for your rider in each town up to Puerto Vallarta and obtaining a preferential rate at the host hotel. ARMT is not responsible for providing a vehicle or guides to the companions, however, if a group of companions gathers, we can see the option of renting a special van for them at an additional cost. Each companion must have their own vehicle and travel the highways of the state of Jalisco from town to town to Puerto Vallarta. Or you can get the special rate at the PV host hotel. And wait there for your rider.
