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.
