My hotel tour desk offered many excursions from day to night. I was really unsure as to which my husband and additional couple was going to select being that we didn't care to spend a lot of money on an excursion.
Well, through it all, I got on Trip Advisor to see what else was available ....there it was, the Puerto Vallarta City Tour (not the shopping tour) for a mere $39 per person, what did we have to lose.
So I went back to the tour desk and specifically asked for this tour. He made a call and booked it.
This Puerto Vallarta City Tour offered pick up and return to your hotel! Many of the others didn't.
This beautiful air-conditioned van arrived with two other couples who also booked and away we went.
David was the speaking tour guide who was FULL of great history of Puerto Vallarta and its development in the early 1900's.
We visited the graffiti wall that promoted artwork, the alligator farm that also enlightened us on many other animals nearby. A visit to a local bakery that was delightful! If you get by Lupita's Bakery during the tour by sure to buy a piece of Tres Leche Cake...outstanding!
Next visit in town to a few beautiful churches, a visit to Malacon shoreline. Then a trip up the high road to see many spectacular points of viewing.
Next stop was the Tequila Tasting which was educational, flavorful and enjoying to sample. I bought the Almond Tequila....yummy! Right up the walk path was the destination for lunch. It was a light treat of shrimp empanadas for us. If you don't want to spend the money, pack snacks and lunch for yourself.
We walked the same area down the waterway stream, watched birds, and other wildlife.
We returned to the bus where we e gaged further in conversation with the other couples on the bus, able to see their hotels as they were dropped off during the end of the visit.
David was great! Money well spent. Thank you, thank you! I do recommend.
