My friends and I are from Oklahoma, We did the canopy tour and had sooo much fun with the guys they were great! So much fun and they took really good care of us. We lost our fear heights. We also did the tour to Marietas Island. The crew was sooo great! My friend and I got sick on the boat the capt, the tour guide, the bartender were so helpful and concerned and took really good care of us. Special thanks to Charlie who swam over to the island to give us some medicine. He was sooo sweet! We love Charlie! We would highly recommend to everyone!

I just recently came home from Puerta Vallarta and I honestly had the time of my life. I can honestly say that our adventure with Vallarta Adventures had a bid impact on it. A group of girls and I all went on a snorkeling adventure to the island and I was wondering if the crew guys had a personal email because they were all amazing and I would love to keep in touch with them! Thanks for your time! :)

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.
Hello, On Thursday March 8th I went on a tour to Marieta Islands. There I went snorkeling and kayaking. After leaving Marieta island I went to a secluded beach and I had the best time of my life. The guys that worked on the catamaran that I went on were hilarious and entertained us the whole way there and back from the tour. At the beach they included everyone in a game of volleyball and then soccer. Thank you so much for making my visit to Puerto Vallarta extra special.
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.

The snorkel trip to Marietas Islands was a great time. The crew was outstanding, the lunch was perfect and the beer was cold. Thank you for the great trip.

We recently took our first trip to Puerto Vallarta and participated in 'Las Caletas by Day.' We snorkeled, kayaked, hiked, and just relaxed. The food was luscious and all the personnel were friendly and knowledgeable. My husband and I rated your trip as the ultimate of our vacation ... 5 star!
We just got back from Las Marietas! What a beautiful and wonderful experience! I love Puerto Vallarta, but the trip to Las Marietas was my highlight!
We couldn't believe the day at Las Caletas and we are thrilled to convince others to take a similar tour with Vallarta Adventures.
