What you'll do

Chek my instagram @adrenalyn_junkies and Facebook /adrenalynjunkies.

We start with a road trip along the coast until we reach the famous viewpoint of Mismaloya where we can see the Arcos and take some pictures with such a landscape.
We will walk a little through the jungle to get to the beach, where I will explain and teach everything necessary for the activity. After a session of stretching and breathing exercises we will be ready to enter the water and explore everything the bottom of the sea has to offer.

We will dive, swim and take many photos while we explore the islands and their caves, I will show you inside and out all the fauna of the place and tell the legends that have accompanied these islands since always.
After almost two hours of being in the water we will return to the beach where we can relax a little and share our experiences. We will enjoy a small snack to recover before taking the bus that will take us back to the city.

Where you'll be

Los Arcos de Mismaloya is one of the most famous places in Vallarta and Mexico due to its beauty, its large size and the importance they have for the preservation of marine species and birds, as well as the fact that the San Andres fault starts a few meters from the place makes your visit more interesting, that's why it is also one of the favorite places for those who practice diving.

This was one of the highlights of our 10-day trip to PV. Sebastian helped us feel very comfortable in the water and even taught me (a certified awkward swimmer) to dive. We saw spotted eagle rays and tons of cool fish, and the pictures Sebastian took were great. I would highly recommend this experience!

Fue una muy buena experiencia, Sebastian es muy agradable y atento, nos guió paso a paso a lo largo del recorrido y nos cuido muy bien , a pesar de que mi novia y yo no sabíamos nadar del todo bien, con su ayuda pudimos disfrutar un rato muy agradable y fantástico, lo recomiendo amplia mente.

GENIAL! No hay nada como ser guiado por alguien como si fuera tu amigo de tiempo y que conoce bien lo que hace. Sebastián te hace sentir muy bien y realmente sientes que te presta toda la atención, hace que te fijes en detalles que de otra forma no notarías. Mi segunda parte favorita (la primera fue la experiencia), sin duda las fotografías, espectaculares! Sin duda lo volvería a contactar.
