    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!

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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!

    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

    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!

    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.

    , 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.

    We loved this excursion! The boat staff was amazing and the location was so beautiful and relaxing. They had something for everyone and we really enjoyed the extra's we did the sea lions were the highlight of our trip. If you know going in that you are going to buy the photos, have them take as many as you can so that you get your money's worth!

    Not as long as promised! Were told we could leave at 8 am, spend the day, but when we called to confirm, we were told we couldn't leave until 12pm! Return was 4:45, so trip was way shorter than we were told. Other than that, we made the best of it! Food at resort was excellent, services at resort excellent, boat ride, crew, all you can drink, all fabulous!

    This was so much fun! From boarding the boat to Las Caletas to the boat ride back, the staff was cheerful and seemed to think of everything before we could ask. Las Caletas is like a paradise. You can relax in a beach hammock or if you are more daring take a zip line into the ocean. I highly recommend paying extra for the sea lion and diamond ray excursion. Swimming with them was the highlight of my vacation. It was incredible to be so close to such amazing creatures! Also a big thanks to their awesome photographer Karla for capturing those special moments.

    It was pouring down cats and dogs and we were hoping we could reschedule the tour. No luck, they said it would continue through rain or shine. So we lost over 200 and didn't bother signing up for any other tours. I had to give this a star or I would not be able to submit my review.
