Purchase day trips online or can you get a better deal there

Just wondering if they have lower prices there or where would be the best place for a deal. Last year we were walking through Playa Del Carman and sat in on a timeshare presentation. We ended up with 3 day trips for the family. Just wondering if the same is true for Nuevo Vallarta? I understand to stay away from those at the airport. Thanks in a advance!

Yes there are plenty of time share presentations in PV/NV . If you are willing to give up 6 hours of your time, you can get some excursions. They start hitting you up at the airport and can be found most everywhere else too.

I would say, don't do the time-share presentation route (unless you are planning to buy a time-share). Just buy your tickets. Take a look at www. vallartatraveladvisor.com, which is Scott's tours. He is a legitimate dealer and is a really good guy. You can probably get your excursions on-line through him for a lower cost than you would pay at your hotel or resort.

Usually online is best and if you book directly with the company, they do not have to pay a commission to a 3rd party.

Vallarta Adventures now has a book 2, get a 3rd tour free.

Thank you! It Scott's Tours still in business? I have been searching his site and there is information on the tours but no way to add them into your shopping cart! Maybe he is on vacation!!!!!!

Hellosusie,

I just tried Scott's Tours and I was able to buy tours. Maybe check again and see what happens. It may have been a "glitch" in the system when you tried. Yes, he is still in business.

re: the time-share sharks.

Don't to the Mayan one..

It's the worst. (not that we went.LOL) but talked to a young couple who spent 5 hours of HIGH pressure ,or their beach time to finally get 2 bottles of booze and that wash All.. no $$ . Plus no ride back, they had to pay their own taxi.

Can;t help you with that. Most tours that I know of are full day (or most of the day). Good luck with your search.
