Felix was great! He picked us up right on time at the designated location, and we went straight to Mismaloya Beach! It was beautiful! FYI- Get your swimsuits on before you get picked up! There are restrooms near by but not super close, or you can change in the car. We jumped straight into our experience and started paddling to Los Arcos. The water was relatively calm and I still fell in - 🥶mucho frío! Felix is super friendly and brought his GoPro along to get some videos and pictures of our experience! We are so glad he did because they look awesome! When you get to the spot there is a place to tie up your board and snorkel. The water was a little murky because of the high water but we still saw a few different kinds of fish! I'm sure on a more clear day it would be 100x better! On our paddle back he showed us cool cliff diving spot near the beach, and a location where they filmed an old 60's movie called, "Night of the Iguana". We are so happy we did this tour with Felix! Definitely book this if you are in Puerto Vallarta!

We loved our paddle boarding experience with Felix. He is super kind and competent and provided us with interesting information on Los Arcos. We saw rare sea birds and even several whales in the distance!

It was an awesome experience! Something I’ll remember for the rest of my life! I couldn’t believe Felix spent so much time and energy with us to ensure we had a good time. The quality of service he provided was worth a lot more than he charged. Free Go-Pro photos, patience, conversation, transportation, and being a overall cool guy. We will forever remember this experience and adventure. This tour was worth it!!

Amazing padding experience. Felix was very helpful and friendly. Los Arcos , National park is such a wonderful place and being able to explore it on a paddle board is such a extraordinary experience. I highly recommend this experience if your ever in Puerto Vallarta. 😎✌️

Les recomiendo al 100 esta experiencia, en verdad es un experto Félix. Mi novia se mareó en el camino y Félix estuvo al pendiente todo el tiempo, nos enseñó fácil y claro como llevar el recorrido lo más amigable y excelente posible, si tuviera la oportunidad volvería a usar esta experiencia.

This was our 3rd different adventure while visiting Puerto Vallarta besides laying on the beach, but it was unanimously our favorite. We were a family of 6 and it was a great experience for each in its own way. My 14 yr old son, who doesn’t show emotion 99% of the time was already telling how much he loved this outing on the way back while still on the paddle board!! Paddling through the tunnels was amazing and we saw many, many fish despite the water being a bit murky that day. Instead of paying for a boat to take you around, let Felix take you out on the paddle boards - truly worth every penny and memory for a lifetime!
