    What to Expect
    The Puerto Vallarta diving experience is an introductory program that allows anyone 10 years or older to experience scuba diving in a safe and exciting environment.

Situated on the south side of Banderas Bay, Las Caletas is an exclusive tropical beach hideaway with underwater caves and natural reefs. Home to a diverse array of sea life, colorful tropical fish, turtles and manta rays, it is considered to be one of the finest scuba diving locations on the Pacific coast of Mexico.
