Puerto Vallarta Vacations

ULTIMATE CRUISE & VACATION knows Puerto Vallarta like a bien amigo. We inspect the Vallarta area annually at the minimum. We have access to the best vacation package prices, including non-stop flights from Kansas City and many other departure cities. We know the hotels in the hotel zone, Nuevo Vallarta and Punta Mita area's intimately. 

Check out our personal pictures for all of the major resorts from three to five stars in Puerto Vallarta and the nearby area.

Once a tiny fishing village, Puerto Vallarta has become a world-class vacation destination. It is an easy destination to get to and is full of hotels and All-Inclusive resorts in all price ranges. We visit, photograph, video, and report on all of the hotels we inspect. We like to say Puerto Vallarta is authentic Mexico, complete with cobble stone streets and churches dating back to the 1500's.

Puerto Vallata is located on the Bay of Banderas, one of the most beautiful natural bays in the world. We strongly recommend at least one excursion on the bay. There are day tours that cruise the bay, allow snorkeling opp's, time at a remote private beach and cruise back to the marina past all of the fabulous hotels and downtown.

While the beaches in the collective Vallarta areas are perfectly suitable for swimming we must caution that you are now on the Pacific side of Mexico. The waters are not quite as calm, or transparent as they are on the Gulf or Cancun side. Tempatures are also a few degrees cooler as a result of the Pacific Ocean. Beaches in the Nuevo Vallarta area are a bit sandier and have fewer rocks than the Puerto Vallarta area. You will enjoy long stretches of uninterrupted beaches no matter where your hotel is located. These are some of the best anywhere for those long walks.

Nuevo Vallarta, located just to the north in the state of Nayarit, is the area emerging with spectacular new built resorts such as Grand Velas, Marival, the Riu hotels, Vallara Palace, and soon, Iberostar in Punta Mita.

Together these two areas will produce one of your all time ultimate vacations. Stroll the Malecon (boardwalk) for shops and nightlife, sail beautiful Banderas Bay with dolphins along side you, fly through the trees from platform to platform and zip-line over the rivers, golf at any of 7 designer golf courses, or even catch Wahoo, Tuna or Marlin (seasonal) while deep sea fishing.

The nightlife - it is what you make it to be. You can party until you drop at some of Mexico's best disco's and nightclubs - seriously!

Contact ULTIMATE CRUISE & VACATION when you are ready to plan your vacation or honeymoon to the Vallarta area. Our vacation planning Super Stars have the experience you need to have the ultimate Puerto Vallarta vacation at the very best value!

Marietas Islands & Snorkeling Cruise

We love this excursion and highly recommend it. Getting out on the Bay of Banderas is a must and this is a terrific way to do it. Sail on a Trimaran following dolphins, giant manta rays, sea turtles, and humpbacked whales (in season) to the Marietas Islands where you chose your own fun. Snorkel around the rocky caverns, scuba dive, kayak, lie on the beach, or just be served tropical cocktails by their pleasant staff. Includes open bar, lunch, water and spots. PRICE: $75 adult.


Dolphin Encounters

There are no less than four unique options to encounter dolphins in the environment that is right for you. There is a Kid’s Dolphin experience; an Encounter with the Dolphins for folks not real comfortable with their swimming skills; Swim with the Dolphins for the full experience; and even a Dolphin Trainer for the Day for true fanatics. Prices range from $69 to $275.


Canopy La Vista

There are good places to zip-line and there are better palces to zip-line. Puerto Vallarta is definitely one of the preferred destinations to zip-line. This is a great activity and our clients come back thrilled each time. So here is your opportunity for that adrenaline rush as you soar above the scenic Sierra Madre Hills. PRICE: $69 adult.


Rythms of The Night

This is some of the best evening fun you can have in Puerto Vallarta. Take a sunset cruise to a secluded cove and be treated by local musicians playing along the shoreline and them enjoy a delicious open-air dinner. PRICE: $93 adult.



Journey to the original town of “tequila”. Take in lush greenery, local villages and the agricultural areas as you travel into the heartland of Jalisco. You will pass lava fields, an active volcano and the Ixtlan de Rio pyramids. Your destination is the ocal distillery of “La Cofradia”. Here you will experience the whole Tequila distillation process, from the treatment of the Blue Agave tequila plant to the full process with a chance to try the final product. You will enjoy samples and be able to buy what you like. A typical Mexican lunch is included.


Sea Lion Encounter

Not only learn more about sea lions but get in the water with these lovable and playful creatures. They are fast, agile and adorable. There are several options on how to be involved with them. Experience them in their environment. PRICE: $79 per adult.


Pirate Ship by Night Cruise

Begin your cruise at sunset onboard the Marigalante, an authentic replica of Christopher Columbus' Sante Marie. Pirates will entertain you while waiters fill your drink orders from the open bar and the fun continues when live music takes over while you hit the dance floor. Enjoy a great dinner in the galley consisting of beef and shrimp and fresh salads. When darkness covers the skies you will cruise along the main boardwalk as fireworks are set off from the boat over the bay. This is a fun experience for every age. PRICE: $85 adult.


Deep Sea Fishing

If you are a fisherman then you have to try your hand deep seas fishing in the Pacific Ocean. Join an experienced crew as part of a group or on your own private charter for 8 hours.
