This day trip to the exclusive and enchanting coastal haven on Banderas Bay will allow you to get away from it all, kick back, relax and let all the stress slip away. A great family friendly adventure to be enjoed by everyone!
Las Caletas, only accessible by sea, is a well-secluded nature preserve that stands out against a steep, jungle-clad backdrop of green canopies in an isolated cove on the southern shores of Banderas Bay. As you cruise towards this tropical paradise aboard your first-class catamaran, you'll enjoy the most fantastic coastal scenery that Puerto Vallarta has to offer.
Upon arrival at Las Caletas, you can choose between a day of pure relaxation or gentle exploration. If relaxing is on your personal agenda, you can kick back on the beach, relax in the shade on a comfortable hammock or indulge in a therapeutic body massage or facial.
As you relax and unwind, the gentle lapping of the surf on the private golden beach beckons you to take a closer look at the calm, clear waters of the isolated cove. Throughout the day, the bilingual eco-guides offer snorkeling, scuba diving and kayaking tours, giving everyone a chance to explore Banderas Bay in a fun and exciting way.
On land, you can take a Paella cooking lesson, discover Las Caletas' prolific flora and bird life on a free guided nature walk through the jungle, orchid gardens and interactive parrot center, or explore the natural amphitheater and the Mayan Pyramid that serves as center stage for the contemporary dance performance on the Rhythms of the Night tour.
Note: Breakfast and the Paella cooking lesson are not included in the 11:30am tour.

This was so much fun! From boarding the boat to Las Caletas to the boat ride back, the staff was cheerful and seemed to think of everything before we could ask. Las Caletas is like a paradise. You can relax in a beach hammock or if you are more daring take a zip line into the ocean. I highly recommend paying extra for the sea lion and diamond ray excursion. Swimming with them was the highlight of my vacation. It was incredible to be so close to such amazing creatures! Also a big thanks to their awesome photographer Karla for capturing those special moments.
