“San Sebastian Del Oeste”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

My Wife and I recently travelled to Puerto Vallarta (Jan 30th 2012 to Feb 7th 2013) During our stay we booked another Vallarta Adventure Tour. We have previously done the Sierra Madre, Dolphin Swim, Off Road Adventure, Whale Watching, Marietas Discovery and Rhythms of the Night (all GREAT!!! Vallarta Adventure Tours). This year we did the San Sebastian Del Oeste tour. What a treat, since I love culture and history this was right up my alley. What made this trip so wonderful was the knowledge, humour and overall pleasantness of Carlos “Joel” our tour guide. A short 90 minute air comditioned tour bus ride, wonderful lunch and great stops along the way. If you are into History and Culture this is a don't miss trip.

P.S. Bring your own toilet paper...lol

“Los Arcos scuba dive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Wife and I just returned from a wonderful trip to Puerto Vallarta. While we were there we both did the "Outdoor Adventure" and I did the Los Arcos scuba dive. We wouild like to give 5 Star to both: the tours and the great staff. On both tours the staff were very professional and safety directed. Yet, they did it in a personal way. We also had a chance to talk with them about their country and their families which made the tours even more interesting.
My wife had posted more on our Outdoor Adventure tour so I'll just add here a little about my dive tour. The Los Arcos tour is a scuba 2 tank dive only. We were a small group of 7 divers. Sorry no whale watching here. Our Dive Master, Hugo, and boat captain were very professional and safety directed, but did it so you felt you were on a personal basis with them. We saw 3 manta rays up very close. One of the rays, about 8 ft wide, circled our group during the 1st dive at least 6 times, actually so playfully that we all had a chance to touch it. We also saw lots of fish, eels, starfish and couple of lobster.
We plan to come back in a couple of years and would do both tours with Vallarta Adventures again. They have a great staff and are well planned.

“"Extreme Adventure" Zip Lining Adventure - crew is a blast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

The 6 of us fun times people decided to do the zip lining tour - it looked so daring and fun. The adventure was a total blast - very exciting, scary, adrenalin rush! What really made the tour super fun was the staff. We had Marino, Alex G, Andrea, Erick and Julian. They made us laugh the entire time, and when we were scared to jump 2000 feet on a rope they kept our focus off the jumping so that we felt more relaxed. We couldn't have gotten through some of the jumps without thier ability to keep us focused on other things besides the scare of the jump! It was exciting and daring, but the laughter we had because of the staff was the best! Alex G cracked us up the WHOLE time. Definitely an experience everyone should try if you're out here!

“Rhythms of the Night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

This is an outstanding event. You get a 2 hr boat ride to a secluded spot were you are treated to an amazing oceanside buffet at sunset and then an awesome show of dance and music. Then you get a night boat ride back to the marina. We worth the money. Our ride was relatively smooth, the boat is large enough to take over 150 people on 2 levels but if sea sickness is a concern, take a bit of gravol with you. Drinks flow freely on the boat by a very attentive crew but everyone was well behaved and enjoyed the trip.
