Puerto Vallarta: Sun Buggy Sightseeing Tour with Lunch

1. Puerto Vallarta: Sun Buggy Sightseeing Tour with Lunch

Enjoy a day of fun in the sun while learning about Puerto Vallarta's most famous points of interest. See how tequila is made, visit the filming location of a famous movie, shop for local souvenirs, and enjoy lunch at a secluded beach. Start with a scenic drive down the coastline to Puerto Vallarta's lush Botanical Gardens. Wander through the many terraces and admire tropical flowers, jungle trees, and colorful birds. Pick up a souvenir or try a local snack at the onsite restaurant. Next, cruise down the southern coast to the historic El Baston Del Rey tequila factory. Learn a thing or two about how the finest tequilas are made and pick up a few bottles to take home. After, discover one of the best kept secrets of Puerto Vallarta, the secluded Mismaloya beach. After lunch at Mismaloya, take a short hike out to a lookout point to snap a picture with the 15-foot iguana statue, erected as a tribute to the 1961 movie Night of the Iguana that was filmed in this village. Afterwards, cool off with some body boarding or snorkeling at Los Arcos or just kick back with a cocktail at the beach.

Puerto Vallarta: Half-Day Speedboat Tour with Snorkeling

2. Puerto Vallarta: Half-Day Speedboat Tour with Snorkeling

In a speedboat we will go to the south of the bay until we reach the arches of Mismaloya, where we will have a couple of minutes to take pictures, then we will continue south where we will snorkel in one of two possible spots (these can vary depending on weather conditions, to ensure good snorkeling), where we can find a great diversity of marine fauna: lobsters, turtles, starfish, octopuses and a great variety of colorful fish. We offer small groups and the best equipment for snorkeling. The spotting points for marine species are not very crowded, which makes the diversity and quantity of fish greater.

Puerto Vallarta & Nuevo Vallarta: Half Day Snorkeling Tour

3. Puerto Vallarta & Nuevo Vallarta: Half Day Snorkeling Tour

The experience begins from either Puerto Vallarta or Nuevo Vallarta, depending on the option chosen. Embark on a sightseeing cruise along the shoreline heading towards the snorkel spot at Los Arcos de Mismaloya. As you sail, marvel at magnificent views of the coast then enjoy a refreshing dip in the water and go snorkeling in search of colorful marine life. During the cruise, treat yourself to a drink or two at the international bar. After about 30 minutes, head towards the vibrant front of Paredon Beach, enjoy a selection of freshly prepared dishes including chopped fruit, fish ceviche, guacamole, ham and cheese paninis, and green salad. Once you’re full up from lunch, spend some free time relaxing and soak up the glorious Mexican sunshine. If you’d rather something a little more adventurous, make use of the kayaks or paddle boards. At the end of an unforgettable day of fun, sit back and relax on the return journey to Puerto Vallarta or Nuevo Vallarta, admiring the last of the coastal views along the way.

it was a great way to spend the day. Love the cars and the guides are amazing. Friendly, fun and they take care of you. The tequila amazing bought lots, the boat ride really made the trip even better. The lunch wasn't my favorite but everything else was so awesome it didn't matter. The botanical garden was also amazing.
