Great show, great crew, great buffet, great atmosphere……expensive, but worth it.
This is the one touristy thing that we will do over and over.
Have nothing but praise for Vallarta Adventures.

For someone who is solo traveller, I would suggest that this experience is not for you, especially given the price point.

As someone who has travelled all around the world on my own, my previous experience is that you meet other solo travellers for a shared experience on various tours. However, for the ROTN activity, the organization precludes that opportunity from ever happening!

The process is that you show up at the prescribed time and when you board the ship, you indicate the numbers in your party. If you are solo, then you must dine alone at ROTN - full stop. I would suggest that this dining restriction made the activity awkward and disappointing.

That being said, the show itself was exceptional, the ambience was magical and the food quality was very good. It was the perspective of this solo traveller that it was the dining restrictions alone that resulted in me giving this activity a 'poor' rating.

Lastly, if you are not staying at a hotel, you need to make yourself to and from with no discount in fees.

Rhythms of the Night was a memorable experience. The boat trips there and back were incredible fun - the crew were fabulous entertainers and the performance of acrobats and dancers was amazing. Free-flowing booze helps the mood but that's not what makes the night by any means. The crowd gets into it and everyone really enjoys themselves. Highly recommended to be included in a visit to Puerto Vallarta.

OK, so it's touristy. We're tourists! And sure, it can be a bit spendy (hunt around for various pricing options), but it's 5+ hours of fun and adventure. The large catamaran has white resin chairs and a choice of included (pretty weak) drinks or beer. The boat ride is pleasant, if a bit on the lengthy side. The approach to the destination, which is Las Caletas Beach, is immediately impressive. It is not an island but has an island feel due to its relative isolation. The beach and jungle are lit with countless torches and candles. Easy to navigate trails lead through dense tropical foliage to the several buffet areas and scattered seating areas in multiple hillside areas. The effect, with the torches and candles, is magical. Others have said to set the bar low regarding the buffet, but I have to say that every single item was delicious, of good quality, and cooked perfectly. The Cirque du Soleil-type show is energetic and entertaining, with a large cast of incredible gymnasts, contortionists, fire jugglers, and many others. The special effects and lighting are impressive and the overall show is very well executed. Another impressive component is how the crowds are handled. Two or three catamarans at a time arrive at the beach. I asked our server how many guests were being served that evening and he told me 735; they can take up to 1,000. You don't really realize how many guests are there until you arrive at the outdoor amphitheater where everyone has gathered at once. This is a large operation, but it all comes off efficiently and is well orchestrated. If you have a spare eveninig on your Puerto Vallarta vacation, do consider booking Rhythms of the Night.

A couple tips. Bring a light jacket or a wrap as it can be breezy and chilly, especially on the return boat ride. And note that this leaves Puerto Vallarta from Puerto Magico, which is different than asking your driver to take you to the Marina.

Rhythms of the Night show was an entertaining and excellent performance. We saw no value to the VIP experience purchase. We did board the boat 1st but was no VIP seating, food or drinks. VIP were called to leave the boat 1st - but this was not enforced. There was a VIP seating area for the show - but same - people in our row had not paid for VIP upgrade. We boarded the boat about 6 but our dinner seating was after 9PM. Buffet style meal was quite good - but we were rushed to eat as the bell to board the boat back to town rang before we could finish - leaving us no time to explore the property. Again - no VIP benefit. Although basic purchase price was high - seeing the show was definitely worthwhile - but payment for VIP experience was a waste.

Thank you for your comment, we are sorry for the displeasure you had. The vip service promises to provide priority boarding and disembarking, as well as preferential seating at the show and at dinner. There are no vip seats on the boat, but being the first to board, you can choose where to sit and enjoy the view and the boat riding. Thank you for visiting us and we will take your comment on the rushed time for dinner into account.

Our second time for this magical night of entertainment... an enjoyable creation of characters and music and acrobatics coupled with ambience from luminaries and torchlights.... The dinner was very tasty and the boat ride there and back was entertaining as well.... We've been in July (bring a little bottle of bug spray) and in February (most recent)(...I'd suggest to bring a wrap or light sweater for the boat ride home...it gets a little chilly on the water...) Wear shoes you can easily walk in, as you are going from a boat that sways a little and may be wet, to a dock, to a dirt pathway w/some slopes and inclines.... you're sitting on bleacher like seats for the show and there is NOT a bad seat in the house... so don't feel disappointed about where you end up...it's all good! Those boats pull out pretty quickly once the show is over, so if you want to take pictures with the island as a backdrop, you're probably better to do that when you first arrive. Note also: It may be a bit of a challenge for someone with mobility issues... I do think they try to accommodate but it seems that it would still be a concern, in my opinion.

Thank you for providing your recommendations for other guests. We appreciate your interest. Deifinitively it can be a bit complicated for people with little mobility and when offering the tour before booking we tell them. We are very happy to have you back and we hope to receive you many more times! Thank you for visiting us.

This is an event you don't want to miss. The catamaran ride, the jungle setting, the food, the show were all top notch. During the winter months you will see whales on the way to the show, no need for a separate whale watching tour! The buffet dinner was excellent with wonderful views of the ocean. The show itself was exciting and well done. If you have trouble walking or are in a wheelchair, this event is much harder. The jungle setting has many trails uphill/down that you have to navigate.
