We rented a boat for 1/2 a day at Playa Mismaloya - Javier - just ask for him by name. His family also owns the restaurant immediately across the little walking bridge at the beach. Had a nice snorkel at Los Arcos then went to Quimixto where we walked to the water fall for a refreshing (very chilly) dip. We... More

We hired a boat, and they took us here to go horseback riding to a waterfall. It is a very small town, and you walk through it until you arrive at the river where the horseback riding is. For $20.00 a person you can take a horse on a 30 minute ride to a beautiful waterfall, with a guide, and... More

We hired a boat at Playa Mismaloya. Our captain was Chava (cell phone 044-322-104-30-87 email chavabravo4@gmail.com) who made our day there a huge success. I don't think we would have had so much fun without such a great guide. We started out with some whale watching in the Bay of Banderas. From there we went snorkeling at a coral reef... More

Ok, all the guide told as about the waterfall was good. But the reality is very different of what you see in the pictures. Waterfall is very little, water is very cold. The trail is very dirty and smell to horse poop.

We went with the Villarta Adventures Sea Safari which I would recommend:). I was interested to see a real village and of course the waterfall. We took a boat as part of our tour, had a chance to buy drinks and a snack before walking though Quimixto. I had read in another review that the horses were boney, but that... More
