Enjoy Bahia de Banderas and its splendor starting in Vallarta around 9am, depending on your pick up place. Our first stop is Las Juntas, where we will have a walking tour for you to visit the main plaza, the church and locally owned shops like a tortilla factory, a butchery and more. Many of the workers of the hotels live in this area, so you can really see how people live! Then we will take the old passage from Bucerias to Valle de Banderas where you will see the main activity of the area: Agriculture. Crop after crop you’ll learn what is needed and how people work in the field. Depending on the season we might see crops of watermelon, papaya, chilly, rice, corn, mango and pineapple among others. Even though this is relatively close to the tourist towns, when driving here it seems so far away! We will stop at Valle de Banderas town on the way, the main village of the area. If possible, we will visit a local school in this town.
From July to December, we have the opportunity to see these animals and marvel at their beauty, during their reproduction and nesting cycle. In general, the release program starts in July, and ends by January (of course this all depends on Nature). During this period professional biologists and certified volunteers patrol the beaches 24 hours, to collect the eggs and transfer them to a secure area. On this tour, you will be able to learn about the sea turtles, the turtle camp projects and you will be part of these too, since you will help us release turtle hatching into the wild.
We can’t breathe under water (some of us wish we could), but we can discover part of the underwater world thanks to snorkeling and scuba diving gear. What better way to explore a bit of that majestic environment and learn about the wonders of the deep blue, than with a marine biologist. Thalia, our marine expert will guide you in this adventure. She’ll be there to explain about the environment, let you know about the species that we will be seeing and make sure that everybody enjoys the activity while doing it safely (she’s also a certified lifeguard).

They enter Banderas Bay to mate, breed and nurse. You will be guided into the wonders of whales, by our biologist with a Masters Degree in Marine Ecology.
