by Vallarta Adventures Duration 7h+ Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees

Escape the tourist hot spots and venture to Yelapa, a tranquil village with an abundance of snorkeling, hiking, kayaking, and local Mexican culture. Complete with lively guides and an open bar, this full-day catamaran trip explores Banderas Bay's secret hideaways, isolated coves, and secluded beaches.

Set sail from Puerta Vallarta aboard a luxurious catamaran with the vast Pacific Ocean ahead and a refreshing sea breeze surrounding you. Spend your morning snorkeling and exploring the peaceful cove of Majahuitas. This coral reef and tropical fish-filled coastline is only accessible by boat, making it one of Puerto Vallarta's best-kept hidden treasures.

When you are ready, a picnic lunch, open bar, and knowledgeable crew await your return to the catamaran. Along the way hear fascinating Mexican trivia and admire the panoramic views of the deep-blue ocean and pristine coastline.

Nestled in a natural cove you find the traditional fishing town of Yelapa, where you can venture though the unique, road-free community. Hike through the lush jungle and uncover the Cola de Caballo waterfalls, go for a refreshing swim in crystal clear waters, or bask in the sun's warmth on the beach with your favorite cocktail in hand. If you're looking for a relaxing, multi-activity adventure away from the hustle of the big city, look no further.

Blew my expectations out of the water! Chai and his crew on boat 8 made for such a fun day! Will definitely recommend to friends and family- and book the tour again next time we’re back!

The snorkeling experience was not the best, they didn't explained very well where were the best to see the marine life, the group was kind of disoriented, everybody split in small groups and start exploring on their own. Breakfast was very "light" (no protein, just carbs), there was only a "make your own sandwich" kind of lunch, so do not expect much on the meals "included in the price" side. Photo packages are pretty expensive (US$80 just for photos on an USB thumb drive). Otherwise, an abundance of drinks at the open bar made everyone happy, good Rolling Stones "lip sink" and break dance performance, lots of fun with the crew.

It was very fun experience. The only thing I would highly recommend to change is the time spent at the first island and the start time. It was a bit too early and the water was cold to swim, but the first island was so beautiful and tranquil that we would of loved to spend there at least couple of hours. Maybe swap the stops, and do the city tour first stop while its still a little cool and people can walk around easier. The would be the only suggestions, otherwise the crew and the experience itself was amazing.
