SNORKELING CRUISE VALLARTA
A rock bottom price for a full day of cruising the waters of Puerto Vallarta on a double-decker tour boat, snorkeling at the Los Arcos marine preserve, swimming under a beautiful waterfall (seasonal), and relaxing and swimming at Las Animas Beach. Not only that, but after snorkeling, the drinks will free-flow, lunch will be served on the way back, and the MC will lead you in fun games and dancing as you drink your margarita or ice cold beer. This is a low-budget trip, so set your expectations accordingly, but it's the only one that visits Quimixto and a good value for the money.
The boat sets off from Puerto Vallarta and heads south, providing you with plenty of photographic opportunities. Stop at Los Arcos for snorkeling with many beautiful tropical fish. Next stop is Las Animas Beach, where you can either get off and relax on the beach or do optional beach activities such as parasailing, or continue a short ways further to the village of Quimixto. Here you can rent horses to take you to the beautiful seasonal waterfall where you can swim in the pool below, or take a guided hike there instead at no charge.
See the tiny village of Quimxto, then meet back up with the people who are splashing and playing at Las Animas Beach. Board the boat and lunch is served. Of course, the drinks are flowing as well! Dance to the music, participate in fun audience participation games, or just sun yourself on the top deck as you return to Puerto Vallarta after a full day of fun at an incredibly cheap price. This is not a luxurious cruise or boat, but lots of fun for the super low price point. Just realize how cheap this tour is for what you get, and if you want a higher class cruise make sure to book one. We have plenty of those too!

Not the most luxurious boat, but the super low price point reflects that. At about half the price of a normal booze cruise in Puerto Vallarta, this trip provides a good time for a very low price. Please set your expectations accordingly.
If you have kids that are sensitive, are willing to pay for more luxury, or are looking for a quiet relaxing cruise, we suggest choosing a different tour. If you just want to snorkel, swim, drink, and soak up the sun for a day for as little money as possible, this is a good choice. There may be loud music and people drinking on this trip.
This trip is very popular with Mexican tourists, so there may be more Mexicans than foreigners on board. Make sure that is ok with you before booking.
