We boarded the boat for Marietas Eco Discovery adventure. The crew was on top of everything. Poncho, Victor, Kimo, Juan, Carlos and Ricardo made our trip so awesome. They have energy and can dance their butts off. Once we arrived at the island the fun and adventure began. Our breakfast and lunch was good and very tasty. I recommend this... More

We went here with Vallarta Adventures and had a wonderful fun packed day.. All activities were off the pontoon. We swam aprox 80 meters to get to the secret beach and I can't even explain how beautiful it is. Krystal clear beach. I will go it again when in PV.

Back on boat if you want to paddle board! Boat is covered from the sun so we were freezing because wet from swimming! Then the booze... More

You can't go wrong with a trip to islands in any tropical place. Vallarta tours was an absolute delight. They went above and beyond to ensure the service was top notch. Our tour guide was Pablo and he was an excellent MC and guide when we went snorkelling. They stopped when ever we spotted a whale and gave us information... More

I rated this tour excellent because the islands are unique, and the tour operator was very safety minded. We took our friends on this tour that we did several years back. In my opinion, Vallarta Adventures is the way to go because I feel they value safety, the boat (with heads) is a good size, the food and open bar... More

Cyndy and I booked an adventure through Vallarta Adventures to Las Marietas Islands and the Hidden Beach and we had a great time. The Hidden Beach was amazing, very tough swim from the boat (so proud of Cyndy) but well worth it once you made it inside. Very beautiful but so crowded that kind of turned us off. The snorkeling...

We had a blast on the Chica Locca boat tour to the island. Fantastic crew, food, drinks, music, whale watching, water slide off the boat, and of course snorkeling. If you want to be bored, choose Vallarta Adventures. If you want a great trip, and tons of fun - choose the Chica Locca Tour. We are recommending Chica Locca to... More

The island is nothing like the photos since it is filled with other swimmers - so very, very crowded. (and smelly) The write up leads you to believe you will snorkel, kayak and board - but actually you will only do one of these activities. The snorkeling was beautiful though. Next time we will go on just a snorkel trip.... More

My boyfriend and I booked the "Marietas Eco-Discovery Experience" through Vallarta Adventures. We each paid about $75 and with that we had a great day on a boat with about 75 other guests (still enough room to walk around and have fun) where we went out to the islands and (1) swam through an underwater cave area (not completely submerged...
