tours are perfect for people who want to lounge
and relax on a private beach for the day, and
get pampered every step of the way. A
great idea for cruise passengers as a cruise
shore excursion, these beach breaks all feature
a boat cruise on Banderas Bay, to reach a private
beach, where only people from your tour are
allowed to go. Here you'll spend the day,
basking in the sun, eating, drinking, swimming,
and doing water sports. A great way to
spend a day in Puerto Vallarta! Also
see our Beach Breaks FAQ.
Our Advice: There is no better way to
Vallarta than on a boat. With jungle-draped vistas,
that can't be accessed by roads, and Pacific
it is magical.
Puerto Vallarta Beach Break FAQ's
Q:ARE THESE EXCURSIONS OPEN TO
CRUISE SHIP PASSENGERS? A: Yes, in fact, these tours are
highly recommended for cruise passengers that are looking for a relaxing
day on the beach to complement their days on the ship.
A CRUISE - HOW FAR IS IT TO THE DEPARTURE POINT? A: All these cruises depart from
the Marina Maritima, the same place as your cruise ship. Just
walk on over.
Q:WILL MY CRUISE SHIP ARRIVE IN
TIME TO DO THESE TOURS? A: If you arrive at 9:00AM or earlier,
the boat will wait for you. If you arrive at 9:30 AM or later,
then Las Caletas will be your only option. Make sure to allow
an hour after the tour for return to your ship, and if you have any
questions, just give us a call - we're always happy to help.
THE WATER TEMPERATURE IN PUERTO VALLARTA? A: During the summer months, the
water is bathtub warm, approaching 85°F. During the winter months,
it cools down significantly, and you often find temperatures dipping
into the mid-to-high 60s.
Q:HOW ARE THESE TOURS DIFFERENT
FROM THE BEACH BREAK OFFERED BY MY CRUISE SHIP? A: Other than the price, many cruise
ships offer a beach break at a timeshare resort in Puerto Vallarta,
where you can use the facilities of the hotel. On this beach break,
you are transported by bus to a crowded beach with hundreds of other
cruise ship passengers, where you are greeted by timeshare salesmen.
With these tours, you take a beautiful cruise along Banderas Bay, followed
by spending the day on a remote private beach, where only people from
your tour are allowed, with no timeshare sales - just relaxation and
