We booked this trip by Travel by Boat company. Very disappointed. The island seems to be interesting but their program did not even give us enough time to enjoy the island. If you will go to this island, do a private tour, that way you are not in a rush and it will be in a small group, unlike riding... More

The Marieta islands are beautiful. I was expecting a little more because the images that they show look fantastic. Customer service is one of the best I've had. They are all making sure everyone has something to drink and making sure everyone is doing okay. The crew members put on a little show at the front of the boat at... More

The Marietas Eco Adventure was very beautiful there was so much you could do. The cave they take you to is just amazing and breathtaking, it makes for great pictures. You get to snorkel and they also have activities such as kayaking, paddle-boarding, or just lounging on the beach. On the way back they take you through a route where... More

We took this tour with Vallarta Adventures. They messed up our shuttle from the hotel, our check in, and our shuttle back. Would not recommend using them for this tour. The lunch they provide is just a cold cut sandwich. They basically drive you out to the island and bring you back. The islands are nice but our tour did... More

Overrated site seeing boat trip. Expected more than a small hole on the island with a little beach you have to swim through a tunnel to get to.

We loved visiting Marietas Islands. We went with Vallarta Adventures and they took great care of us! You have to swim under a natural arch to get to the island, but it is worth it. The snorkeling was great, we saw a lot of beautiful fish. We always saw dolphins jumping out of the water on our way back into... More

Well worth getting up early and taking the day trip with the Adventure Tours...good value..lunch included...great staff. The Islands are excellent visually, a protected bird sanctuary, snorkeling, paddle boarding and the secret cave...the only complaint...not enough equipment for everyone!
