We booked this tour through our cruise ship and all members of our party were delighted with the experience and care by Nathan and the crew of Vallarta Adventures boat 3. We were taken to Mahajuitas first for snorkeling, SUP, or kayaking, scuba instruction was...More

We started off our trip at Vallarta Adventures and went over to the marina to pick up more people. Tour guides were very inattentive unless you asked them questions. The way the online guide suggests the trip (romantic, time on your own etc) versus on...More

I am giving this tour a poor rating for several reasons. Two years ago I took this tour. There was no private beach at that time. The boat dropped anchor before arriving at Yelapa and we went snorkeling and kayaking. This was so nice and...More

The site was beautiful, however the main part of the Yelapa adventure was a long hike to a waterfall, my wife and I were not up to it, however we did enjoy a couple beers at a beach restaurant. Worthwhile for those with greater mobility.

Yelapa is a filthy hole. Rubbish all over the streets and run down everywhere. Vallarta Adventures takes you to a beach afterwards, you have to wade through a dirty estuary and then to a beach shack. Then surrounded by people trying to sell you everything....More
