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
