Las Caletas

If a person booked this tour through Puerto Vallarta Tours, would you be going with Vallarta Adventures? They sound slightly different in each write-up, yet I have read that Vallarta Adventures holds the only permit to land there.

Or are they 2 completely different tours? It is kind of confusing. Thanks for any clarification in this matter.

Puerto Vallarta Tours is only a ticker reseller. They do not provide any tours, they just make a commission from the tours they sell. They are a middleman. Vallarta Adventures is the actual tour provider.

You can save 30% by booking through http://tourdealspuertovallarta.com/. We paid $59.50 each rather than $85. I would suggest going on the 2nd tour of the day. We went on the first (last week) and it was a bit cool in the morning for the water activities, though they do provide wet suits for snorkeling. I felt it was a good value, since all of your food and drink and most of the activities are included on the tour. They charge extra for massage and scuba diving. As we were approaching Las Caletas on the boat there were tons of dolphins swimming alongside us.

Thank you all. Good tip about the tourdeals site. Thanks for that terriks and JR.

It really does get confusing between ticket resellers and tour providers and "same" companies with different names and offers. We started out looking at the buy 2/get another free offer through Vallarta Adventures, but if we can't find a 3rd, will likely go "tourdeals". Every $ saved is another Margarita!
