Paddle Zone is a family owned and locally-operated company created to share the intrinsic treasures of the Banderas Bay with the public by way of ecologically-friendly sports and recreation services. Offering equipment rental, professional lessons, and ocean excursions, we craft memorable outdoor experiences aimed at providing value, inspiring adventure, and prioritizing safety.
My friend and I had an amazing kayaking tour with Emily and Alberto (I might have the guide's name wrong and I apologize!) The trip was amazing. We paddled to Los Arcos and through the caves. Our guides were intent on showing us all the natural beauty that surrounded us. We also got to snorkel. The waves got a bit choppy on the way back, but the adventure was worth it. We were treated to a delicious pizza when we returned. Couldn't have asked for a more perfect outing!

Toddlers are admitted free of charge. Tours to the Gardens are available but not necessary, its easy to come on your own and cheaper. The Vallarta Botanical Garden was selected by the Canadian Garden Tourism Council in 2013 as one of the "Top 10 North American Gardens Worth Travelling For". - Open 7 days/wk for the months of DEC, JAN, FEB, & MAR (except DEC 25 & JAN 1) - Open 6 days/wk for the months of APR through NOV (closed Mondays) Located just 30 minutes from Old Town Puerto Vallarta. To arrive on your own using public transportation, take the "El Tuito" bus at the corner of Aguacate and Carranza Streets in Puerto Vallarta's Romantic Zone. Tell the bus driver you are going to the Botanical Garden "Jardin Botanico" and he/she will stop right at the Garden's entrance. The same bus offers return service to Puerto Vallarta (PV) with the LAST BUS TO PV AT 6 PM. WHAT YOU CAN EXPERIENCE: beautifully landscaped grounds, stunning plant collections, jungle trails, mountain river swimming, bird watching, Hacienda de Oro Visitor Center, Vallarta Conservatory of Orchids and Native plants, Rhododendron House, Holstein Tropical Plant House, Tillandsia House, Tree Fern Grotto, Palm Collection, Tropical Fruit Trees, Butterfly Gardens, cool "Sierra Madre" mountain breezes, gift shop, Swimming in a crystal river, Vallarta's most-popular destination restaurant (famous for brick-oven pizza & authentic Mexican cuisine with dining to the backdrop of jungle-clad Mountains while overlooking the Horcones River and the gardens)... And much, much more!
No trip to Puerto Vallarta is complete without a visit to the Vallarta Botanical Gardens. They have an extensive collection of plants from Mexico and other tropical regions, including a variety of orchids and other flowering species. Before or after exploring the grounds, enjoy breakfast or lunch at the restaurant located in the center of the garden. While everything on the menu is good, the fish tacos are a standout. You can reach the Gardens most inexpensively via the public bus that stops at the corner of V. Carranza and Aguacate streets next to the Tecate beer depot. The current bus fare is 20 pesos per person each way. (Look for the bus marked "El Tuito / Jardines de Botanico".)

Attended Spring Break 2018. Tuesday evening. It was about a twenty minute walk from our hotel. Lots of local attractions including a free stage.
We attended Senor Frogs which was a memorable visit. Nice feature of the Malecon is that it is closed to traffic. Like a cement boardwalk. We went over the bridge by the Tequila tasting place and had dinner at Dacquiri Dicks. Very nice.
Never been to Mexico. This walk for us was a highlight of our visit. The best part was that to the locals trying to get you to buy something are not forceful. No means no.
Another nice thing is that I felt very safe walking there at night with my wife of 30 years.

Remote beach accessible only by boat, this is the perfect place to get away from it all.
We hired a boat for the day, who brought us to a very secluded beach..Majahuitas also has a very private resort set just back from shore with security..it's the home owners and renters facilities along the coast..
The beach is beautiful but it is a very small pebble beach as opposed to a fine sand..The waves crash hard here and can sweep you off your feet pretty easily.
The pirate ship cruise does a day trip here, ferrying large groups of tourists to the island, so your privacy can disappear quickly

This is a filthy little beach in a filthy little town. The place serves as a passthrough for boarding boats to other Beaches and little towns along this southern coast of the bay. I would not recommend it for bathing or eating or even for finding bathrooms. As for the taxi boats, ask around before committing to pay the exorbitant prices that you will be charged by the hawkers who greet you as you arrive. Go down to the shore and ask around and wait for a reasonable price.

I see from other reviewers that Karla and Boca Divers get 5 stars across the board. We went on a snorkeling trip with her and completely echo what everyone else has to say. We took a trip to Las Marietas with another company and wish that Karla had been our leader then too. Her attention to detail, her love of and knowledge of the fish and animals of her home is very apparent. The cost was quite reasonable too. If we come back, I think I will try diving with her too.

Playa Mismaloya is small beach within just a 20 minute bus ride from Centro Puerto Vallarta. Although the Barcelo resort sits prominently at one end, it does not deter from the small fishing village feels of the beach. The beach can be busy at times and slow at others. You can buy almost anything you need on the beach, from the beach hut restaurants, or wandering vendors. If they don’t have it, just ask and they will get someone who does. There is a community here that helps each other out. Take a water taxi, bus, taxi, or drive. Spend the day and relax. Or rent a paddle board, or kayak. Do some SUP yoga. Once you spend the day here it will become your new favourite place. If you want a great spot to eat, drink, umbrella, just ask for Jose. Everyone knows everyone, you’ll see.

The EDENVA Ecotourism Park "El Edén de Vallarta" has as a quality policy to always establish a link between the client and nature, through different services of the park in a reliable and safe way, having as a priority the quality of our services. Scenic rainforest is the site of the filming of Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, Predator.
Gorgeous jungle setting where the film "Predator" was filmed. Get your picture taken standing by a helicopter and a scary looking dude, then have lunch in the open air restaurant overlooking a river that has a waterfall and shallow pool that attracts kids and grownups. After lunch, which consisted mostly of shrimp, I was in that pool. So refreshing! I wanted to spend the whole day there. Another plus, zip lining! You can zip on the lines in the trees that form a canopy over the water and restaurant. I highly recommend this experience.

Love or hate zoo's, if you don't support them financially the animals may suffer, and the animals at the Mismaloya Zoo do NOT seem distressed.
We stayed 3 days down the road and our #1 purpose was to visit the zoo, especially BORIS the Giraffe. We interacted with many animals, fed them, and had fun.
We enjoyed our walk through forest and mountain, but there's lots of walking up and down ramps. I did find the cougar enclosure small and hopefully management will consider moving her to a larger enclosure.
Yes, this zoo is not of a Canadian calibre, but well-worth the visit. And do buy food at 50 Pesos...the animals will approach you, eat from your hand, and thank you!
Best wishes, Paul

About a km and a bit hike through Boca de Tomatlan to this lovely secluded beach in a quiet cove..it is still subject to some wave action, but less severe than more exposed close Beaches..it is popular with the locals and features no facilities..Shade can easily be had, the easiest way to visit is to get a water taxi from Boca, they can drop you off right at the beach
