The airport transfer was super easy and our driver gave us a couple of excellent food recommendations. He was extremely courteous and even put up with our terrible Spanish. We also took a boat charter on a catamaran which was an amazing experience. Although we did not realize we were visiting in the rainy season, and we got quite a bit of rain, the captain and crew were friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and made the trip outstanding despite our last hour of minor terror in a huge downpour. Honestly we had a great time and enjoyed the beautiful bay and coastline of PV. Many thanks to PV Tours for helping make it all possible. I highly recommend using PV Tours!

We reserved a catamaran for our group of about 20 people. We were provided clear instructions where to show up and board the boat. Reminder that there is a separate fee to pay to the marina of $3 per person.

Our ride was awesome. Our hosts Victor and Marianna said we could do whatever or go wherever. We decided to do some whale watching by Los Arcos and then we headed to a quiet area to play on the floating lily pad and kayak they provided.

The drinks were awesome, free flowing, the menu we picked out was tasty as we were on board for about 6 hours so snacks were needed! We brought aboard some of our own drinks which they kept cool for us.

Victor answered all of our questions and was a great guide. Our captain also was good in chasing down any dolphins or whales for us to see. I think Marianna was a bit new but she did great and warmed up quickly.

Be sure to bring some money to tip these hard working crew members - they made our day so enjoyable and we were really lucky to have amazing weather. I honestly wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you so much for a memorable day.

We booked this same boat in 2000 with another great experience and hope to be back again one day!

The dune buggy experience was amazing and Danny our tour guide made the trip incredible. We’ve done at least half a dozen tours in 3 countries this past month, and Danny made this one the best. Hopefully you can drive a manual transmission, request the dune buggy tour, and take this with Danny.

3 of us took the private yelapa paradise tour March 9, 2022. Disappointed for the cost. Our guide Jacqueline was more interested in her phone and did not really interact with us at all unless we initiated conversation. There was no history or explanation of the places we saw. Boat driver Cesar was very friendly and we appreciated, when my husband saw dolphins, Cesar immediately stopped and our 9 yr old grandson was able to see them up close. When we arrived at yelapa our guide left us alone and we relied on the restaurant staff to help us find the horses to rent to go to waterfalls. They also helped us locate our guide upon return. There was no tour of the village offered at all and no history or cultural information given. The snorkeling was great, but again we were on our own in the water. Previous snorkeling tours we have taken the guide helps us look for interesting marine life etc. We were not offered water or soft drinks on the boat even though the tour states it’s included. We finally asked and received a bottle of water on the return trip. Basically we could have just hired a water taxi and got the same experience at a much lower cost.
The restaurant food in yelapa was amazing tho and the service was fantastic.

Had a zip line tour for nine scheduled for ten twenty and didn’t end up leaving their office until nearly eleven. When we finally left we spent the next thirty minutes or more driving around downtown Puerto Vallarta while they tried to scrounge up more customers. You rode around town the entire time in an open military style vehicle, I didn’t mind the open air vehicle as I enjoyed looking at the sites and the breeze felt nice but as you left pavement and went offroad the ride got extremely rough. The ride on the dirt road was described as a Mexican massage, which was a pretty accurate description if you’re talking about massages that beat the crap out of you. You aren’t allowed to take a GoProon the zipline with you “for safety reasons” but are allowed to take one for a fee and a picture package purchase. Turns out they sent us with someone else's ninety dollar disk, no videos were included as promised and the majority of the pictures were blurry and over exposed. When we contacted them about it, they basically told us too bad. They weren't going to do anything about it.
The crew working the zip line was the best part of the tour. They were friendly and fun. However the majority of the zip lines are very short and less than thrilling. The site advertises twelve zip lines at that particular location but there were only nine. After the zip line We were told we would have an hour to hang out before the bus left. Turns out they just want to hold you hostage at the location trying to sell you overpriced food. My family changed into swimsuits to play in the river there but since the people in our group weren't spending as much as they liked on food they rushed us off.
Next stop the tequila tasting. You weren’t allowed to go anywhere except the room in which you hear their seemingly never ending schpill on the miracle of tequila and have them try to coerce you into buying an overpriced bottle of tequila. I would not have attended with my kids but it was part of the tour and since we were part of a larger group, had no say in the matter. My kids and the majority of adults held hostage were bored to tears.
I would never, EVER use this company again! We were gone for five hours and probably only spent 45 minutes at the zip line portion of the tour. The entire place is a rip off, they want as much money as possible for a very poor quality tour. Spend a little more money and go elsewhere. Horrible ripoff from the get go.

The good: Booking was easy, and we felt good with the "no port, no pay" policy. The pricing was also very competitive in comparison to other booking options online. We originally booked a morning tour, but after reading more on debarking procedures, we were worried about making it on time. I reached out the the company and they helped us move to the afternoon, with no worries.

The Not So Good: The excursion itself was okay, but not as good as we expected. The dune buggies were pretty run down, seatbelts didn't retract, and just hung loose in front of us. They also had to use a screwdriver to hotwire ours to start it. Driving was mostly just on streets from point A to point B, at a slower speed, single file. Never got to really enjoy them.
As soon as we got there, they hurried us to the ziplines. During the ziplines, they rushed us through each line (even cause a three person collision on a line). As soon as we finished, they hurried us back to the buggies. We didn't have time to take pictures ( but were offered pictures for $40). Didn't have time to get in the water at all, or even get a drink. Advertisement said we would get to enjoy those amenities as well, but we didn't. It was obvious that they wanted to hurry up and get the tour over with. Made the experience less enjoyable.

After that, we drove to a tequila tasting (which was more of a sales pitch), and they tried to sell us bottles of tequila that started at nearly $50USD. Then we stopped at a restaurant that was good, but overpriced for where we were. Still, it was the only thing to eat nearby, so if you were hungry you had no other choice.
These were the only places we weren't rushed through, ostensibly because they were making additional money off of us for those. So we weren't allowed 5 minutes to dip our feet in the beautiful waters up in the jungle area, but had well over an hour to sit down and order full meals? Obviously a strategic allocation of time.

My advice. Pick only one of these activities, and make sure that they GUARANTEE you'll have time to experience the things you paid for.

Booked a tour weeks in advance to learn a week before that they no longer offered the specific tour package I booked. I requested a refund and they only gave me 95% back of my $550 trip, keeping $25 or so of my money. I understand the issues cancelling days before and not being able to offer full refunds, but they bailed on me and still refused to pay the full refund.

I had decided to book an airport shuttle for my trip so that I didn't need to hassle with the taxi option and getting ripped off by the meter or due to my little Spanish speaking. It was $26 for 2 of us and from research a taxi would've cost a third of that but we still felt safer with this option, thinking it was a shuttle with other travelers just like they do with Las Vegas or Supershuttle company. I couldn't find the purple shirt representative once we were in arrivals, and we kept asking the employee working at taxi booth. She kept directing us to just go outside, since I said we already had a reservation. It took over 30 minutes for us to get help after standing by the TPV sign, which was hard to find since the lettering was so small. We had to get the attention of the employee working the taxi booth saying there wasn't any worker that's been out to meet us. She finally was able to get the attention of the worker inside with the purple shirt to meet us outside and confirm my name on her sheet of paper. And then she just randomly chose a taxi driver that was in the curb nearest the sign that was waiting for a passenger. So we were confused as it ended up being a taxi anyways. The driver unfortunately did not know where our hotel was located, and he had stopped to ask 3 different taxi drivers to guide him. All I knew was it was located on Hidalgo street, in Romantic Zone, #16, but I'm not sure why he had trouble finding it. It was a pretty popular and big hotel. There was a language barrier as well as he didn't speak English but at least I knew a little Spanish. It was weird that he didn't have GPS on his phone.

Puerto Vallarta Tours Canopy Tour through Los Veranos was the perfect excursion for our family of 6 cruising with Royal Caribbean! The meeting spot was well explained and marked for us to find when we got off the ship. The boat ride was awesome. We got to see the whole coastline and it was beautiful. Los Veranos was both professional and so fun! They made sure those who were coming from cruise ships went first in the group of zipliners and personally found my family to make sure we got on the first shuttle back to the port. We got to hold a toucan and play with monkeys before leaving which was a highlight of our whole trip. Thank you for a fabulous excursion!

During the week of Dec. 6th we chartered a 4-hour fishing trip with Puerto Vallarta Tours. The boat we were on was clean and nice. The captain and mate were experienced, professional and very helpful. The fishing was not great although we caught a lot of small spanish mackerel; just nothing big or more exciting. The best parts of the day were when we saw four humpback whales and when the captain made excellent, fresh ceviche using the fish we caught. It was served with crackers and was delicious.
