Puerto Vallarta is part of the beautiful Bahía de Banderas (or Bay of Flags), on the Mexican Pacific. Conditions are so ideal, we are fortunate to encounter giant manta rays, humpback whales, transient orcas, loggerhead and green turtles (to name some), as also bottlenose, spinner and spotted dolphin. There is a fascinating variety of tropical fish - to mention some: angelfish, sergeant major, damsel fish, parrot fish, trigger fish, nudibranchs and many many more.
