Quimixto waterfall and Las Animas beach Puerto Vallarta Reviews
Snorkelling, Beach, Waterfall.. 3 in 1.. Famous boat ride in Puerto Vallarta Jul 23, 2011
One of the famous boat rides in Puerto Vallarta is covering Los Arcos Snorkelling, Las Animas beach and Quimixto waterfall. Many tourist operators run boats all days in Puerto vallarta. All those 3 places can be reached only by boat.
The boat starts from Puerto Vallarta's main terminal, Mariana Vallarta pier. also small boats will take to the main boats from Los muertos pier in romantic zone too.
Cost is around 30USD for an all inclusive trip. Lunch is free in Las animas beach and drinks are free in the boat. Catch is we have to pay for drinks while having lunch in the beach restaurant. One day trip is not enough to cover all 3 places. Majority of the people stay in the Las animas beach after snorkelling in Los Arcos.
If we visit the Quimixto waterfall we will not have time to spend in the beach. First stop of the boat is at Los arcos. After 30mins of snorkelling (equipment will be provided by the boat team for 30USD returnable deposit), boat leaves to Las Animas beach. Guide will ask to saty all go to waterfalls on boat and the rest will be ferried to Los animas beach using small boats.
Quimisto waterfall is adventourous and intresting. Cause we can reach the place only on horse back or walk. 2.5 KMs stretch with mud and shit of horses all around, is difficult to reach the place. We have to cross 3 water flows on the way. So flexible shoes and dress is recommended for this trip. Horse ride can be rented for 15USD for this trip. I have walked both the ways and seen the gorgeous waterfall.
On the way return from waterfall, we were taken by small water taxi to Las Animas beach and lunch was served. After lunch it is time to return to main port. On the way back the boat crew will serve all sorts of booze. Open bar. Also they dance, celebrate the birthdays if any..
Over all a nice package and I have enjoyed the same thouroughly.
