Aquaventuras & Other Excursions - March 2012

Hello all! I posted this on the Puerto Vallarta forum and was told that I would be better served to place it here as well, so here it goes:

I am heading to PV to stay at the Marival Resort and Suites with my wife and my bro and his wife in March for a few days. My wife is in love with Sea Lions and we must do the Sea Lion Encounter at Aquaventuras (I am told :) ). My brother suggested maybe a Zip Line excursion as well. Does anyone have any suggestions on what activities are the best? From what I have read, it sounds like Vallarta Adventures is the way to go, but if anyone has any suggestions on things that are "must see" I am all ears.

Just for some background, we are all in our late 20's and like being out and seeing the sights/having some adventure. Everyone likes the idea of things like zip lining, snorkeling, etc, so nothing is off-limits.

Also, would anyone have any tips about the resort we are in? I have only seen it in photos and read a bit on it, but if anyone has been there and has some feedback I would love to hear that as well.

Thank you so much!

IMO, the best zip line in the bay is at Los Veranos. It is excellent! If you get here before whale watching season ends, you can go on the Geronimo which will take you whale watching as well as snorkeling at the Marietas Island. (If you are here on March 10, check the Bucerias forum for a tour which the proceeds going to the food bank). Aqua adventures is terrific. The sea lion encounter is fantastic! You can check out this link for tours: http://jdtoursvallarta.com/ I would also suggest maybe an ATV or Dunebuggy tour. both are wonderful!

Have a great trip!

I second stonekold's advice - the Outdoor Adventure offered by Vallarta Adventures is a real hoot, and money well spent. The zodiac departs right from the marina in Nuevo, so it's quite convenient to the Marival. You'll probably be able to see some whales & dolphins along the way.

Refer to the following link for more details, and just do it!!
