Had the most fun!
Loreen_C, Apr 2023
An amazing experience! Lunch was delicious, the boat crew was amazing, the entertainment was hilarious. The island has everything you may want from snorkeling, scuba diving, ziplining, cooking classes, a spa etc. My only complaint (only because we had a ton of fun) was it felt too short! The boat ride each way is an hour, so if you do any activities like scuba diving - time goes by really fast.

Enjoyable but overpriced pictures/videos

I loved going here. Place was beautiful food was good. I ended up doing the sea lion encounter for an additional price. I had so much fun up u til the end when it was time to leave and they approached me with the photo package. It was ridiculous with the prices. I felt like its overpriced. I already paid o er a $100 for the excursion then a extra $69 for the encounter then they tried to charge me $140 usd for the couple of photos and one video they put together. I was a solo traveler and had did they’re adventure tour the fay before and had did so many things and only paid $70 for my photos and videos. I felt like they just try to get over on you with this excursion. I ended up paying $100 when it was all said and done. Everything was good enjoyable up until that part. So come prepared to pay a pretty price for your photos and videos if you decide to let them take your shots.
Stunning, peaceful, calming

The crew was incredible and welcoming. Such a beautiful destination for our relaxing vacation. Would definitely do again.
lots of fun activities
Stephen_L, Jun 2022
The whole tour from the boat ride there and back was so much fun! I loved that they offered so many different activities for you to participate in and at your own time. The only two things that sucked were when the jelly fish would sting you while you’re in the water and that I wish I had more time to do more activities there. Overall, I would do this tour again!
Loved It!
Mario_C, Jun 2022

Recommend 100000%!! Def worth every dime! The atmosphere, the views, everything. My family loved it!
Stunning beach and great drinks
Beatriz_C, Apr 2022
The private beach was beautiful and absolutely worth it. Highly recommend going to the Terrance Bar with Roberto because those drinks were not only delicious but a testament to his craft! Roberto tiene talento! There were plenty of activities to do but honestly not enough time!
Don't miss adventure in Puerto Vallarta!!!
Chad_B, Apr 2022
This was hands-down the highlight of our trip!!! My 5 and 8 year old loved riding the donkeys and zip lining while my wife and I enjoyed snorkeling and generous margaritas on the beach. The food was great and there were so many things we still wanted to do I only wish I could have stayed longer!!! Definitely going to rebook this in the near future.
Fun, Fun, and Fun

The sea lion excursion was wonderful and our photographer Diego did an amazing job, but get ready for a hike. The beach has many things to do and you will be entertained on the boat ride there and back. This is good for couples and families.
Great trip!
Tara_J, Jan 2022
Loved seeing all the animals, the beach was nice and all the staff were incredible! Everyone was having fun including the crew :)
Fun, fun, fun!
Alison_G, Oct 2021
We spent a lot of time swimming and playing with the various animals. The water was perfect! The boat ride was fun, and all of the food and drinks were included, except tips. Great time!
A very enjoyable and pleasurable day!
Nairda_M, Sep 2021
I had a great and varied day together with my family. You have the opportunity to choose the beach activity you want to experience.
Beautiful and fun
Graham_Y, Aug 2021
All of the staff were incredibly friendly; we snorkeled, paddle board, zip lined and rode on the banana boat.. all of it was fun and the area was beautiful! The sea lions should have a larger enclosure.
Amazing Experience - Best tour in Puerto Vallarta!
Shawn_and_Jodi_Jones, Jul 2021
Sergio and Chai made our entire trip. Chai and his crew were excellent for the transportation and Sergio not only provided us with a great cooking experience, but after we were done, he went above and beyond by giving us an extended private tour. Top Notch Service!
Lilliana_C, Jul 2021
Las Caletas is beautiful. Lots of activities. We got a massage. It was the best. I just wish we had more time there. The departure is way too early. Atleast for us it was. We wanted more time.
The marine encounter with the stingrays and Rex the sea lion. Our marine specialist, Angel was fantastic!
Jennifer_B, Feb 2020
I would have given 5 stars if we had 45 minutes longer after we had lunch to spend time on the beach to relax and go to the interactive bird center before heading back. Other than that, the activities were fun and all crew members were super fun and personable.
Excellent tour, so much to do
Jennifer_D, Dec 2019
Our 3 adult kids, husband and I loved this tour. There's so much to do, we did run out of time since the boat ride each way is about 45 minutes. Loved the meal at the end. Especially loved the adult beach with hammocks and bar:) We snorkeled (not many pretty fish though), paddle-boarded, loved the zip-line into the ocean, the water slide and the very animated employees. Be sure to keep some cash with you to tip them!
Highly recommend this tour

This was a nice way to spend the day if you want to get away from your hotel. The tour company have really got this down, staff is pleasant and helpful, food is plentiful and good, and although there can be a lot of people it didn't seem like it. They have a lot of activities to appeal to everyone. I went to the cooking show, it was entertaining.
The day of the tour it was literally...
Catherine A, Oct 2017
The day of the tour it was literally pouring outside and they didn't cancel, which would have been preferable since it rained most of the day and we were limited to what activities we could do. They even delayed leaving the dock since it was raining so hard, which was a good time to cancel. It didn't clear up till we were leaving of course and the show they put on for the ride back was, in my opinion, unnecessary. They could have just played music and that would have been fine. Also, we could not understand a word that the guide was saying, the sound system could use some work as it was all muffled. Would definitely not do this tour. There are other activities that are much better.
