After a lunch Stop, we will go to the beach and enjoy the Jungletake a water taxi to a secluded beach to do some snorkel. A private Water Taxi will pick us up from the beach and bring us to Los Muertos Pier for a walking tour of the city to finish at a chocolate factory for some chocolate tea and dessert.

A Recent Review of this tour

Our private tour of Puerto Vallarta with Raphael was excellent. He met us on time, reviewed the plan for the day, then we set off for a morning of treats, coffee, and insider tips of what to look for when eating locally. What was initially a 5 hour tour stretched to 7 hours because of our pace and many questions- which was no problem for him. He provided good food and drinks and even extra touches like cold towels to cool off with on the jungle hike. I would recommend this tour and Raphael.
