    Scuba/Snorkel with Adventure Vallarta – 7/5/08

    We wanted to offer an activity (the organization, not the payment) for our guests. However, since some people were coming in as late as Wednesday, July 2nd (the day before the wedding) – we decided to wait until Saturday, July 5th to capture the largest amount of people. Adventure Vallarta was nice enough to offer this scuba/snorkel on a Saturday when they usually do not. However, it was not financially smart for them to hold it to our group since we didn’t fill their boat. So we got the date we wanted but not the independence. That being said, we had a large number of scuba certified individuals who scuba dove. I did the first scuba dive but got too green to do the second. The dive was good in the fact that we saw turtles (my fave!) but bad in the fact that it was mostly all cave diving (which I was a little too claustrophobic to care for). I personally didn’t snorkel, but everyone else that did said it was good. We then had lunch on the way to a “private island.” The lunch was very good, and as always, they were serving alcohol. The island was most definitely private and was very pretty. However beware the undertow! Everyone had sand diapers  Anyway, some people played soccer, some people swam, some sat around and drank the beer the walked around and gave us. It was fun but a little long. Once we got back from the island, the scuba people rejoined with the group. This is when it turned into more of the “party boat” since all the serious swimming/diving was done. The MC/DJ led lots of funny songs/dances and everyone had a great time. The Adventure staff was wonderful no matter which thing we did with them. They are funny and eager to please at the same time. I highly recommend doing any of their snorkel trips because regardless of if you see anything or not, the staff will make sure you have fun on the boat. As far as the dive, I would warn divers that it is mostly just moving in and out of caves/small spaces.

      Canopy Tour with Adventure Vallarta

      Part of the group did a canopy tour the day after the wedding, but we did not partake at that time. Instead we did the canopy tour on our honeymoon. I was a little hesitant because I’m not wild about heights. However, the group that went really enjoyed it so I decided to tough it out. Turns out I wasn’t uncomfortable at all until the very end when we had to repel quite a bit down out of tree level back to the ground. I hadn’t realized how high up we were until that point. However, for all the pretty things I saw and the fun of the experience, I would trade my five minutes (most of that being me waiting my turn to go) of being uncomfortable to do it again. The trip started by meeting at the Adventure office closest to us and then riding a big jeep thing through the country side quite a bit to the location. The ride itself was neat to see more of the country outside of the touristy parts of the city and the ocean/beach aspect. Again, the Adventure staff was very good. I felt safe at all times. They made me laugh repeatedly. You can tell they are all good friends and really enjoy their jobs. I definitely recommend this also.
