What people are saying about Nuevo Vallarta

The evening was amazing. The best surprise upon arriving approx. 30 mins prior to boarding was the opportunity to see within inches the dolphins. There must have been 6-8 of them. While you obviously couldn’t swim with them, you got to play with them using a water jug. The dolphins loved the attention and all circled wherever you were. The attendant was excellent. We learned they have between 50-80 baby teeth and the amount depends on the size of the mouth. If they lose one, it will never grow back. Travelling there via Uber or taxi not an issue but coming back can be. Be prepared to wait approx. 1/2 hr. To 1 hr. To get a taxi or Uber. You are on your own to find this transportation. This may be different if staying at an all inclusive due to shuttle service. Although is this frustrating, get past it and enjoy the experience of the ENTIRE event from arriving.

Enrique “Kike” was our guide and he was awesome! My group and I went zip lining for the first time and felt like we were in good hands the whole time. Kike was not only professional and knowledgeable but made the experience a blast! Definitely recommend to anybody looking for an adventure.

We had a blast. My first time doing it and loved it. Zip lining guides did such an amazing job taking care of our group. They were friendly, informative, and a lot of fun. Thanks again! Highly recommend!
