Imagine your most fun friend moving to another place, loving it so much that they learn every nook and cranny of the area. Now imagine going to visit your friend being treated to one of the best experiences you’ve ever had. Our Tour Guides Ulysis and Chino were like hanging out with our “Fun Friends”.
Since we arrived following a storm, there were only 2 of us on the cruise. Now, with only 2 people, I would understandably think it would have been just as easy for Ulysis to cancel the trip, instead he showed up and greeted us with a warm welcome and the biggest smile. He clearly is a man who loves his work and has just as much fun as his guests. We had the freedom to choose how long we wanted to stay at each site. We snorkeled at 2 different locations, and the second location had the most amazing and colorful fish. The water was so clear that you could see to the bottom (this was my first experience with snorkeling, and since I have a fear of the water, Ulysis made sure that I was comfortable. He dove down to the bottom and brought back up things like sea urchins, Sea Cucumber, and Spider Octopus for us to hold briefly. Our trip to Quimixto was wonderful, and the locals were friendly. We hiked through the jungle, crossing streams, tasted edible leaves, and learned about the location. We hiked to a large waterfall where a family lived and runs a restaurant; I ate the most flavorful Chicken Quesadilla from there.
I think I could go on and on about how great of a time we had. I know that the next time we come back to Puerto Vallarta, we will definitely repeat customers.
