    All the host were very nice. We dropped our phone off the shuttle and the driver was able to help us locate our phone and even deliver it to us. Above and beyond. The experience itself is top notch h and well worth it

    Gemma and captain Cesar were great. We saw some great whale behavior with mom and baby. Bonus we saw a very little, Gemma thought 3 day old or less, dolphin.

    A great trip out to Isla Marietas and I was so pleased to make it into the hidden beach. My first time snorkelling was also great. The crew were very passionate about the ocean, wildlife and conservation. This trip is for those who want to see the island and get onto the beach rather than a booze cruise so make sure you pick what is right for you. Would highly recommend this option. Thank you Rodrigo, Bere and Emilio - you went above and beyond!!

    We had so much fun on this private tour. It took us through the city and through the jungle, all the way up to a high point in the mountains with amazing views. It was really cool being able to see parts of the city and mountain towns that we wouldn’t have seen otherwise. Our guide Franco was very nice and gave us a lot of great recommendations for other things to do in the city. I decided to ride as a passenger the whole time and let my boyfriend drive, and I’m glad I did because it allowed me to just relax and enjoy the views and not worry about anything. I highly recommend this experience for other travelers.

    Carlos and his captain were amazing. I can see why they call him the whale whisperer. He knew right where to take us, and we saw an amazing amount of whales and even a mom and her calf. The boat was comfortable, with life vests provided during the trip, so you felt really safe. His knowledge of the whales was really interesting to hear. The captain maneuvered the boat like a pro.. Highly recommend, and would do it again.

    I stayed at the Villa del Palmar Flamingos in Nayarit and had the best vacation of my life. We had a 1 bedroom, 2 bath, with a full kitchen and a washer and dryer in the unit. It's close to two supermarkets and is an easy walk to
    VBucerias. The staff is wonderful.
    The only complaint I have is the room keys. They are on a ribbon around your wrist and are not removable. They have to be cut off. Very annoying.
    I will definitely be returning to this resort. Special thanks to the members concierge,
    Bertha, Lucy, Julio and Lucia

    This was an awesome experience!:))

    Me and my dad loved the zip lining and it was a fun, adrenaline trip. Definitely worth a try with family, friends, or just by yourself. You’ll definitely have a blast! And huge shout out to Ivan, Itza, Wes, Laura, Jona, and David:)))

    We did the Canopy Tour with Los Veranos and I couldn't be happier. 2 out of 4 people in our group get seasick so we opted for the land/jungle bus ride to the mountain. I booked it through my resort (Vidanta) and they picked us up right in Nuevo Vallarta at a nearby Starbucks. The jungle bus goes through old town Puerto Vallarta, which was a very nice perk. It's about 1 hr on the jungle bus and those in our group who get carsick had no problem, even though of course it was bumpy at times. I think it worked for them because it's an open air bus.

    At the top, they have lockers and get you moving to the ziplines right away. We had a 6 year old with us who was pretty nervous and I wasn't sure how he'd do but the staff is so fun and he ended up having no problems. There was also a family with a grandma with them and she did the ziplines too.

    This is the world's largest system of ziplines, which I didn't know when I booked it. You hike to the top (there are benches and water stations along the way) and then you do 19 back to back ziplines. They were incredible and I felt very safe, thanks to their explanation of the gear and the safety of the crew.

    You're zipping over a large canyon with a river at the bottom so it's very pretty.

    Once you're done with your tour, you can do a tequila tasting -- but my two kids wanted to see the animals. They have a small area with rescue animals and you can feed the monkeys/let them hop around on you. It was so cool.

    Then we ate at their restaurant (really good food!) while our kids swam in the nearby crystal clear river. It has 3 slides, which was great for my older child. And a shallow beach area, which my younger one liked.

    We were all sad when it was time to go! On the way home the two of us who don't get seasick asked if we could do the speedboat transfer and they were so kind to accommodate us. The speedboat is a very new, very smooth Zodiac type boat and we had a ball.

    At the end, we accidentally got separated from the other two on the jungle bus and the amazing Los Veranos (Pepe!) employees never stopped until we found each other again and made it safely back to our resort. Thank you, thank you!

    Perfect day, highly recommend for all ages.

    We’ve used this company in Cabo and PV. They do a amazing job! We went on the Luxury Yacht and snorkeling tour. The trip was fantastic from the pick up to the end. Staff is fun, polite, and professional. The boat is beautiful and comfortable, the ride over is very very relaxing. The snacks and cocktails don’t disappoint. They take you to the same beach they use for rhythm of the night and it is beautiful. The water is very clear on that side of the bay. We saw coral many different types of fish. They pretty much let you do what you want within reason while snorkeling. Our guide Danny and the photographer snorkeled with us, and we all had a great time. They will take photographs and I forgot her name but they are very professional. Buy the package you won’t regret it. After snorkeling we enjoyed a relaxing afternoon on the beach with cocktails and watching the fun. They will take you tubing, paddle board, and let you explore the property. The beach was beautiful and we highly recommend the trip. Vallarta Adventure is always the best way to go. We’ve done other excursions with other companies who promise things and can’t deliver with hidden xtra costs. Vallarta Adventures delivers with everything included, this goes for all their other properties and excursions. We’ve used them many times over the past 10 years. Book it! Don’t forget to tip.

    I would give this a 4. It was amazing. Charlie was the best guide. I don’t drink a lot so the stop half way for tequila shots were not for me, to others was a hit! I did this few years back and came back again! Truly amazing!

    If you need a bit of relaxation, renewal and connection, this is a must excursion when you are in PV! Jose did a wonderful job from beginning to end. I loved the history he shared as we drove to the small town to stop and to grab fresh fruits, veggies and tortillas for our lunch that he and his partner cooked up for us. Once we arrived at the amazing hot springs we settled in and were fed like queens and kings with fresh fruit, veggies and guacamole. After the delicious grilled lunch, we ended our excursion with a relaxing massage on the beach. When we went back to the van we were greeted with tasty chocolates and beverages. My husband and I felt renewed, relaxed, connected and well taken care of by Jose. Thank you!
