“Bay view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

Whale watching and great boat rides to visit other beaches. Bay offers beach activities from swimming to deep sea diving, and the snorkeling is out standing.

“Best vacation location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

I didn't like all the street vendors pushing their trinkets every second of every day but the area is so beautiful and the area has so much to offer.

“Fishing on the Bay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

Great trip, they pick us up on the beach and we motored all over the bay, Caught a few yellow tail and many barracudas. The boat captain was a wealth of information regarding Puerto Vallarta as he has been on the Bay for 30 years

“Whale watching”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Sailed across the bay on a 50ft sloop to catch the humpback whales. Saw at least 6 whales pretty close up - lifetime photo op. Docked at a waterfront village for lunch and enjoyed fantastic local food! Returned tomthe marina a few hours later in time for dinner. Perfect day!
