We had a great two hours of snorkeling. The water was clear and saw a lot of different fish and sea creatures. The snorkeling guide was excellent and knowledgeable and bought several fish and creatures to the surface for us to see. The staff of Vallarta Adventures were all great, friendly, accommodating and hard working. Enjoyed the Sea Lion show in Nuevo Vallarta before boarding the boat to the island and the parrots and squirrel monkeys on the island. The buffet breakfast and lunch on the island were excellent with plenty of food to eat. Entertainment on the boat was great. On the boat ride had beautiful views of PV and Los Arcos islands. Enjoyed this outing very much and will plan to do again.

This was one of the few tours that we could do with two young kids (3 and 9 months). It was perfectly appropriate for them. The Vallarta Adventures staff were all great: very enthusiastic, polite, and hard working. They did a "show" on the boat ride back home, which was a lot of fun. The buffet lunch on Las Caletas is....above average. There were a few good dishes, and a few so-so ones.
If I could suggest one improvement, I wish the staff would have told us a little bit about the place we were going, in terms of how to navigate it, and if there was any history of the area. Basically, we got off the boat and were shepherded into lunch. It didn't seem like we had a choice whether we wanted to go to the beach first or eat first, we just got dumped into the restaurant. Then, we sort of just made our own way around. Unfortunately, we didn't realize that there was a second beach, further from the restaurant, behind which were all the activities for kids (the monkeys and birds, nature walk, adventure park etc). SO, we did not get to this part of Las Caletas until 20 minutes before departure time. So we did see everything, but we didn't get to spend time and take advantage of the activities. It would have been really helpful if someone guided us. Basically, once we got to Las Caletas, we were very much left to fend for ourselves.
The beach area is fun and nice. Basically, if you have ever been to a tropical beach destination and been on one of these boat tours, it is very similar to that type of experience. It was appropriate for our situation, but if you're looking for something more active, I would try one of the other trips.

Hello Nazneen80, thank you for your feedback. It's unfortunate you didn't get to enjoy all the great thing in Las Caletas. We have personnel around the place all the time in case anyone needs anything; also, we give out maps of the place so people can know where they are going and what activities they can do. We will take this review into consideration for our general improvement and reinforce our current activities and schedules. Thanks again for you valuable feedback and we hope to see you again soon.

We've gone here twice. The food is excellent, thelocation is well kempt and beautiful, the water is warm - the activities are abundant - and the staff is awesome.
I went with a 14 year old and a 4 year old. The zip line adventure was amazing -- shout out to Vallartas Adventure kid club helper Krista for holding my little guy on the first zip line and guiding him through his amazing time. He was so proud of himself.
My teen loves this place as well - she snorkeled with Victor from the staff - who took her out after the group had gone since she missed them having gone to the sea lion (extra $$) swim. The added sea lion adventure was also great and would do that again!
Highly recommend!

incredible nature island paradise with so much culture, wild life, ancient styled aztec facility. The place does not even have electricity, all lighting is done with candles when night falls. Soooo much sea life to see and experience while snorkeling, delicious food and open bar, tour was worth every penny, includes kayaking, boat ride, snorkeling, tubing, stand up board paddling on the beach, was ter is clear, 3 beaches, super friendly staff that is not satisfied unless you're happy with whatever it is you'r doing, never make you feel rushed, they basically make you fee like family when you're there, anything you want, anything you need they will bend their backs to try to do for you. will definitely recommend to all my friends and will go back to visit next time I'm there
