Overview
Get out on the water of Banderas Bay to watch the sunset on this evening cruise from Puerto Vallarta. Rather than wandering the city streets to pick a restaurant or bar, have your entire evening planned. Enjoy the spectacular views (and open bar) on the way to Las Caletas, then savor a 3-course dinner and watch a memorable cultural show featuring dance and music.

What to Expect
Make your way to the Puerto Vallarta Marina in the evening. Step aboard your boat to meet the crew and other passengers. Find a comfortable seat, and enjoy the scenery as you sail across Banderas Bay. Watch the sun sink toward the horizon as you arrive in the secluded cove of Las Caletas. After deboarding, walk across the sand and down a path lined with torches toward your beachside table. Choose from steak, fish, or chicken for your meal, which is accompanied by tortillas, vegetables, and salad. Finish up with a dessert buffet. After dinner, take a seat in the outdoor amphitheater for a music and dance show, which teaches you about the area’s ancient civilizations. Finally, reboard your boat for a nighttime ride across the bay and drop-off back at the marina.

From seeing whales on the boat ride on our way to the show, to the Cirque Du Soleil style acrobatics, to the delicious buffet what is not to love? Chai and his crew on our boat were hilarious entertainment for the sunset cruise, smiles all around.
