“Must do adventure great for families”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

We did the zip lining, rappelling, superman, polaris atv's and water slide adventure today. They've been in business more than 15 years and focus on fun and safety. All our guides were very knowledgeable and made sure everyone was happy. My 8 and 11 year old boys excelled. What's great about this outing is that there are so many new things to try from ziplining upside down, climbing a60 meter ladder, floating/boarding in the trees,all builds up your confidence and keeps it new and exciting. Rappelling down 60 feet was pretty exciting and they stopped us midwaytocapture theexcitementin photos. Photos a littlepriceybutits an experience you'll remember for many years. They offer free light food such as fruit and guacamole at no charge or really good quesadillas for a fee. Definitely worth the trip if you are adventurous. We had ranges of ages 8 to about 55 inour group and everyone felt a sense of accomplishment.

“Sea safari”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

Booked the Sea Safari with Vallarta Adventures. Our guide was Victor, he was a great guy and answered all our questions willingly. The boat ride across the bay was a blast, after which we walked a short distance to get the horses. The horses are very docile, and can probably walk up to the waterfall with their eyes closed. I expected more, but the water was very refreshing after the trek through the forest. Spent about half an hour at the waterfall, drank a couple of adult beverages, and then back on our trusty steeds down to the boat for a short ride to the snorkeling spot. The snorkeling took place straight off the boat into water that was about 10-15 feet deep, plenty of fish. Another short boat ride to the lunch spot, where we spent about an hour, then back in the boat for the ride back to the marina.
Comments: This is a well run excursion and met our expectations, if there is one criticism I would suggest they spend more time at the waterfall and snorkeling and less at the lunch break, everyone in our group enjoyed the snorkeling, even the nervous ones.

“Nice Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

went on 3 excursions with these guys, Rhythms of the Night, OffRoad Adventure and the Dolphin Experience, all were handled very well despite some challenging weather. Good people here. One minor issue is they use 13 pesos/dollar when calculating a credit card payment so you get gigged a little as the exchange rate is more like 11.70 to 12.00 at most retailers but we are mincing words here. Overall we had a great time with all three tours, thank you!!!

“Off Road Adventure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

We signed up for the Off Road Adventure because we wanted to see the area surrounding Puerto Vallarta. Our tour guide was Miranda. She did an excellent job of bonding us as a group. She explained the local customs of this area to include the Huichol culture. We visited a tortilleria factory, drove about ten miles up a dry riverbed where we took a short hike through the mountains. She knew a lot about the insects, birds, trees, etc.
We visited an authentic Mexican home with an outside kitchen. We were offered a delicious hand made, homemade taco with all of the trimmings.
The trip was great, we really enjoyed it. On the return trip, Miranda kept everyone entertained and involved. She really made the trip.
This trip is an excellent value for the money.
