I went on the Outdoor Adventure Tour and it was the best fun I have ever had. I was a little apprehensive at first because of my fear of heights, but all the guides make you feel so at ease and have a lot of fun with you that I lost my fear very quickly. I wanted to turn around and do it all over again. I highly recommend this tour to anyone, any age. If I had 5 thumbs, it was be a 5 thumbs up.
The canopy adventure was the highlight of our Mexican Riviera cruise. As an added treat Vallarta Adventure has some HOT guides, I am talking about Lorena Flores Barragan. I would love to take her home with me to Los Angeles LOL.
I'm a travel agent and will recommend this to all my clients traveling to Puerto Vallarta. I was on the D team and always felt safe. The guides were friendly and fun.

Highlight of the trip. Kirin, Oscar and Efrain made a great adventure even better. Remember the Mules respond to fart noises and buy the guys a beer afterwords. Also the tequila factory on the truck ride home has the best Tequila in PV. Buy some from Don ChendReuterso, then buy more because you can't get it anywhere but there.
This was the best Outdoor Adventure challenge my family and I had. Team "A" rocked! Safety, loads of laughs and fun all in one. Adventure by sea, 4 wheel drive, Mules , Zips lines and repelling all in one. Such wonderful caring people. I highly recommend it and will do this again when we come back to Puerto Vallarta the next time.

The Extreme Canopy was the most fun I have had in my life. The guides were so wonderful (headed up with Cristian) Every link of the experience was more than I can explan. We wanted to do this over and over and will do it again when we are back in Puerto Vallarta. There aren't enough words to tell you how beautiful and thrilling the Extreme Canopy Tour is...GO FOR IT! :)

I took the Canopy tour on Monday, May 19, 2008. I am 77 years old and thought "what did I get myself into?" Your team D was fantastic. They watched over everyone carefully and especially me. After the first slide, I wanted more. Team D sure made me feel good about the tour. Thank you.
David Primm

My husband and I went on the Outdoor Adventure last week and absolutely had the time of our lives. The experience was amazing and the staff were incredible. They were professional, but alot of fun at the same time. The staff there should be commended - they are fabulous!
Tracie Fleck
Just wanted to send a big shout out to our "C" team: Mariana, Gustavo, Javier, Oscar, Angel, & Efrain! All of you made our Canopy Adventure tremendously fun and was the highlight of our cruise to Mexico! Even though it was only a few hours of fun, I'm still smiling every time I talk of our adventure! I'll never forget it and hope to come back soon... Hey are you guys hiring? :) Keep up the great work!
i dont even know where to begin. my family and i went on the canopy tour and i was scared outta my mind. but the guides i had made me feel so safe, and everything. i couldntve asked for better guides on this adventure. they were all so friendly, and histerically funny it was one of the most amazing expriences in my life. you guys are great at what you do, i am definately going to plan a trip with some friends and go on the canopy tour again. i especially want to say thanks to pablo, what a guy! he was awesome at what he did and made me feel completely comfortable, as did all of you too! anyways, thanks a bunch guys! it was amazing!
Meghan McDonald
The Outdoor Adventure was the most fabulous time I have ever had in my life! The only part I would change is to clear the path for the mules a little better. It is a tough hot job and the path could have been made safer. I also went to Los Celetes and the Dolphin Centre. I am recommending the company to everyone I know!
Anne Kaplan
I just wanted to thank the "H" team for the fantastic time we had Saturday June 9, 2007 on the Outdoor Adventure! My husband and I both agree it was best thing we have done with $100 bucks in a very long time. Other than my husband and I our group was mostly fit 20 something’s. The guides were entertaining, professional, enthusiastic. Not at any time did we feel our safety was in jeopardy. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone that is up for a good time and a little adventure. Be prepared to get wet and have an incredible time!
Cindy – Fairbanks, Alaska
My husband and I just got back from our cruise. We did the extreme canopy tour while we were in Puerto Vallarta. It was well worth what we paid for it. We had an amazing time. We were guided by Team A. They were so funny and made the trip very enjoyable. They were very attentive and explained very well each step we were to take. Thanks so much for the great adventure!
Olea Gough
Just wanted to let you know that the Outdoor Adventure tour was fantastic! My fiance and I enjoyed it immensely and recommended it several people when we returned home. We can't wait to do it again on our next trip!
Lisa McDowell
As part of the NCL Pearl excursion choices, I went on a canopy adventure with your company (May 3, 2007). My guides were were absolutely wonderful!!! This was the highlight of my entire 2 week trip, thank you!
Barb Wilson
My family & I had the opportunity to participate in the outdoor adventure on April 26, 2007, and wanted to say we had a fantastic time. Please share my thanks with your guides, in particular with Jaime, he did an awesome job of keeping us safe and showing us a great time! I didn\'t have the opportunity to thank him personally, please extend to him my heartfelt thanks for a great day!
Deb Mathieu
My wife and I were recently on your Outdoor Adventure canopy and rappelling tour and had the best time ever with our clothes on. Please commend tour group F (Armand and crew) for making the short time we were with you a very memorable one. We'll be back!!!
I had an amazing time on both the snorkeling trip and canopy tour!!!! The staff on both tours were great! and I would like to thank them all.
We recently had our second trip to Grand Velas NVO. On our first trip we went on the canopy tour and had a great time. This second trip was for the canopy tour. We went on the canopy tour twice during our stay at the Grand Velas and probably would have gone again but ran out of time. Marco, Hierberto, and Allen were just a few of the great and knowledgeable guides. My wife and I look forward to returning and experiencing the outdoor adventure on our next trip. Everyone was great and we can't wait to get back. We have the videos from every trip to look back on our experiences. Thanks for a wonderful time.
Ken Holle
The outdoor adventure was fantastic. All of our guides were very knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and professional. Our group was led by Jaime. It was a fantastic experience. Thanks so much.
I just wanted to let you know that my family and I went on a couple trips with your company while we were in Puerto Vallarta last week and just had the most WONDERFUL time! Your staff is absolutely amazing and made the day a complete blast! More specifically the guys on the Jeep safari (Kevin, Jonatan, César.. can\'t remember any other names), and everyone who took us on the Canopy tour (Nadia, Soccertease etc.). Thanks again for a wonderful experience!
Sharni Bruce
I just have to thank all the people of Vallarta Adventures for the amazing times we had on your tours. We did the canopy tour, dolphin swim and snorkeling at las Mariatas. At all times I felt completely safe in the hands of the experienced guides hands. This allowed me to completeley let go and have a blast. On each tour I had a great time and walked away having learned something new and had an even greater reverence for the wildlife and environment around me. What was the best experience though was the staff. Every employee I met seemed to genuinely love their job but also treated the environment and wildlife with such respect and reverence. It was truly an heartwarming experience. Thanks again to everyone at Vallarta Adventures for making My Friends and My Fiancees and My Experience one we will Never Forget. We will definately share our comments with anyone headed for holiday to Peurto Vallarta, and rebook all of our next tours with you.
Jordan Lennon
First and foremost I wanted to say what a great time my husband and I had on your Outdoor Challenge! It was one of the best excursions we have ever taken on a cruise and we would do it again in a heartbeat! Our guides, especially Lorena, were amazingly patient, very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor.
Pamela Burnett
The Canopy Tour was an absolute blast! My sister and I really enjoyed it. I'd do it again!
Richard Pulvermacher
I had the pleasure of participating in the trainer for a day program on January 4, 2007. I just wanted to let whom ever is in charge of this wonderful facility, that I had a great day. Your trainers are extremely knowledable and the dolphins and the sea lions were just such a pleasure to meet. I wish we had more time w/ them. Virginie was our hostess and she did a great job along w/ Rose and Lalo who were also there to help with our day. I can't thank you enough for making this such a wonderful experience. I truely enjoyed my self! Thank you! Thank you! thank you!
Licia Mosher
I recently received the video from our 11/27 canopy adventure and it reminded me of what a great time we had on our excursion. Team E was PHENOMENAL and did a fantastic job helping my parents and me with the mental and physical aspects of the course. I have a fear of heights, and Marco and Aaron did a terrific job of coaching me from platform to platform. The guys worked hard to get us safely through the course, and kept the mood light and fun. Heriberto did a great job of making us laugh, especially my mom. We were very impressed with the level of service that the team provided and I can't say enough good things about the guys. I have told all my friends about this amazing experience, and hope to go back again someday. Thanks for a great time.
I wanted to give thanks to the guys that took our group out for the outdoor adventure. We went on December 28. Carlos, Ramone, Pepe, "Cassandra" are just a few of the guys. They were absolutely fabulous, they made the adventure! I think they work very hard and in very rough conditions. We were very happy with our tour and would recommend it to anyone and would do it again in a heart beat.
Nicole Decock, Canada
I would recommend this tour to anyone who goes to Puerto Vallarta. The gorgeous scenery was awesome, and the guides made it a blast. I don't like heights, but I felt at ease and didn't have a problem. I'm certainly glad I did it... it was an experience of a lifetime!
Jeff Filby
My wife and I wanted to thank you for a wonderful time on your Canopy Tour. The staff was top-notch and made the trip a highlight of our vacation. Thanks again.
Cal & Becca Atkinson
The Outdoor Adventure really was excellent and we all loved it ... a great combination of excitement, sightseeing, learning and even overcoming challenges - the guides were great!
Paul Heslop
I went on the Canopy Adventure with my family and it was the absolute most exciting part of my cruise and one of the best things I have ever done in my life!
Kim Haggerty
I was petrified on the way to the excursion - not knowing how safe (or wise) it was to swing from platform to platform 60 feet above the ground - but these guys know what they are doing. The guides put you at ease and make it fun!
I've been on some amazing tours during my time ... but nothing so AMAZING as the Outdoor Adventure ... fantastic and way beyond expectations!
Chris Martin-Smith
We took the Canopy Tour not once, but twice, because we enjoyed it so much!
Jody and Becky, Canada
The Canopy Tour was the coolest thing I've ever done! It started to downpour which made it better. What a fabulous adventure!
