It is truly amazing the number of people that visit Puerto Vallarta and don´t venture into the water. No, swimming in front of your hotel doesn´t count! PV is an adventure tour paradise with a raft of activities to satisfy just about any taste including jet ski, whale watching and scuba diving activities. For those less sporty and more into socializing while on vacation, Diana´s Tours provides a fun mix of activities for the fun hearted since 1999!
Hailing originally from Quebec, the eponymous captain Diana is a woman with enough charisma and charm to keep tour goers going back for more year after year. The tour starts sharp at 9:00 at the recently renovated pier at Los Muertos beach, just a hop north of the gay beach. The moment you arrive on board is the moment the fun starts, with Diana´s merry crew plying guests with margaritas, J-ello shots and light snacks as gay anthems blare in the background as we head south west to the Los Arcos Marine Park for a half hour of snorkeling.
From there we sail south on the catamaran until we arrive at a secluded private beach just south of Boca de Tomatlán. Here we hit the beach for an hour that may include a jungle walk and yes, more drink and merriment. From there we set sail to the gorgeous beach of Las Animas where lunch is served.
The most exhilarating part of the adventure is the voyage home. Puerto Vallarta is a city that must be viewed from the coastline to be truly appreciated. It has grown, without much planning, along the western shores of the Sierra Madre mountains and is a sight well worthy of any photographer. The ride back to Los Muertos pier entails dancing as the sun sets to the background at Blue Chairs gay beach. Diana´s Tours offers an opportunity to leave pretension behind and have some fun with visitors and locals alike in a way that places reunites the concepts of gay and community.
