Banderas Bay Hover Tours was amazing!!! The hovercraft ride up the Ameca
river, guided hike through the mangroves, and interaction with the local
fishermen was like stepping back in time and experiencing Puerto Vallarta from
30 years ago. The guides are very friendly and incredibly knowledgeable. I
loved the hike and eating termites!!! The mangroves are a beautiful ecosystem.
We had a chance to throw fishing nets with the fishermen which was fun and
embarrassing...harder than it looks. The ride up the Ameca river was
awesome...like flying in a dream over the beach, the mudflats, and the river.
There must have been 20 pelicans flying with us. We saw many different species
of birds, iguanas, turtles, and 3 crocodiles! The hovercraft holds 5 passengers
so, basically, it was a private tour for myself, my 70 year old mother, 15
year old daughter, and 12 year old son...everyone loved this tour. I can't say
enough about the guides...we learned, enjoyed, and never felt like a tourist.
I really liked the fact that these guys are all passionate about conservation
and protecting this beautiful place..they pride themselves on being a real
eco-tour...having a minimal impact and leaving virtually no footprint. This
was the highlight of our trip and we all highly recommend this experience.
