Nuevo Vallarta Tours

Our Advice: The Marietas Islands are an excellent choice.  Lots of fish, coral, and things to see.  The only thing to consider is that this tour is in a small panga boat or zodiac with no bathrooms on board.

Restrictions:  For safety reasons, expecting mothers and people with back, hear or neck problems are not permitted.  People older than 65 years old can't do this activity.  For snorkeling, guests must know how to swim and should have a general level of comfort putting their face in the water.

Start out from Marina Vallarta with a zodiac ride to Marietas Islands protected marine preserve, where we´┐Żll snorkel in two spots, one in each island, and observe the diversity of the underwater ecosystem and rock formations.  To reach this secluded paradise, we will need to swim through a short tunnel. We'll have lunch on board the boat and learn about the special biology of the area before returning to Puerto Vallarta.
