While we were in the Nuevo/Puerto Vallarta area in November, 2013, we went with their tour group three times: Las Caletas Beach day, Merietas Eco Discovery, and the Extreme Zip-Lining. Each tour was great with many options for activities from which to choose. Relaxation or stimulation could be your goal. On the beach adventures, you could sit quietly in a hammock while sipping a drink or do the SUP boards, snorkel, kayak, cooking lessons, animal-watching, or take a boat to another beach. While on the boats, food and drink was plentiful and great! No food on the zip-lining (duh) but the guides were well-trained, safety minded, and very patient!!!! Thanks to Naza, Nidia, Armando, David and Karen for being soooo patient with a 66-year old that balked at repelling down a tree. When I fianally leaned back and did it, I wanted to try it all over again!!!

We left the marina in a pontoon speed boat with 20 others, and Victor as our guide. All the adventures we went on were amazing, but this was by far my favorite. The Sea Safari took us on a fast ride across the Banderas bay to a small fishing village that can only be reached by boat. We walked through the village with Victor as our guide, learning about the people and how they live. It was fascinating! Then we jumped on our horses, and were guided by the young Hispanic wranglers on a beautiful trail to a magnificent water fall, where coronas and lime, homemade salsa and quac were waiting for us as we plunged into the falls following Victor. We then rode back and boarded our speed boat to a protected bay where we snorkeled. We ended our day, going to another fishing village, where a bbq was waiting which happended to be one of the best meals I had in Puerta Vallarta. We layed on this incredible beach till it was time to go back on our speed boat. The entire trip I would do again. It was amazing!! Thanks Victor for showing me how to snorkel! You were the best!!!

We had a family reunion in Puerto Vallarta Thanksgiving week 2013. We made arrangements with Vallarta Adventures for two separate activities.

The first was going to Las Caletas Beach Hideaway. There were 30 people in our group, so our boat ride was just us. On the way, we had an unexpected surprise. WHALES! It was spectacular! Once we arrived, our personal tour guide, Oscar, made sure we had everything we needed. He also kept us aware of any activities that were happening. There is so much to do at this beach you might not know about everything they offer. Oscar and the rest of the staff took such great care of us. There are also staff members on hand to capture every photographic moment. Of course there is a cost for those pictures.

Our second adventure was the Outdoor Adventure. You will get wet on this adventure so wear shoes that you don't mind getting wet and bring along some dry clothes for later. It starts off with a boat ride, followed by a bumpy Jeep ride. Our driver was Manuel and he was hysterical. Then you get geared up and given directions for this experience. You will leave all you belongings locked up with staff. You really can't take anything with you but the clothes you are wearing.

You are then matched with a mule and off you go. Once you reach the top of the mountain, the zip line experience begins. The youngest, in our group of 24, was 10 years old and the oldest was 81 years old. Because of the size of our group, we were not all together. It was a bummer. Fifteen of us were together and the other nine were put with a few other people.

I am very afraid of heights, so I was a bit nervous about this whole experience. Our guides, Alex, Arturo, Tomy, Fernando,Erik, Dany, Tomy and Maria really made sure we all felt safe. They take safety very seriously!

At certain points during the course, I was nervous about my father doing that particular portion. The guides offered to get him down to the next level on an alternative route. My father never took them up on it and did the entire course!

Throughout the whole experience, they have people taking your pictures on the zip-lines, rappelling down waterfalls, splashing through streams and natural river pools on their outdoor adventure circuit.

When you come to the end you return all their equipment and change into your dry clothes. You have an opportunity to eat and drink. They also have several computer monitors for you to view your pictures. For our group of fifteen, we bought the DVD which contained all the pictures they took of us. It was worth it!

I would definitely recommend Vallarta Adventures to anyone. They offer many more adventures.
