We will pick you up at your hotel or at the Cruise Ship Pier and start our adventure exploring the highlights of Puerto Vallarta. We begin in our beautiful downtown area, with a stroll along the Malecon, a visit to our main Church; Our Lady of Guadalupe and the plaza. Next we will visit the “romantic zone” of Vallarta and the famous Los Muertos beach, to Conchas Chinas, our “Beverly Hills”, then on the way to Los Arcos where we will stop for photos and amazing views of the Bay. Next stop is in Mismaloya where the famous movie, “Night of the Iguana” was filmed and put Puerto Vallarta on the map. We will stop at a nice restaurant for lunch (lunch and drinks not included in price) and visit a Tequila learning facility to learn how tequila is made and taste the nectar of the gods!
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. After that we head to "Boca de Tomates" a beach not yet discovered by the tourist, but very popular by the locals, where you can have a real local lunch. Our suggestion is "Pescado Zarandeado", Red Snapper so freshly prepared, that you first have to get into the kitchen to see it. (lunch not included but very reasonable priced)
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.
The market in La Peñita is really a must! One of the biggest Tianguis (market) in the area. At San Pancho, the Entre Amigos Project is great to realiz how much we can do with some creativity and love. And the just relax and have lunch at Sayulita!
On the way to San Blas we'll explore the beautiful scenery, stop at a fruit and candy stand and make our way to La Tovara for a scenic tour of the sanctuary.

Next we'll go to a crocodile farm, have a drink at a jungle restaurant and then visit a Spanish Fort with a magnificent view of San Blas and the Pacific Ocean, then lunch on a great beach.
Join our naturlist guide on this amazing tour! From December 07 - March 23 From late November to late March, hundreds of Humpback whales migrate down from the cold waters of the North Pacific Ocean to our less cold waters. 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. Our boats are small because this is the best way to get close to the animals, to move faster and to avoid disturbing them too much. Join us!
