Navigating Las Caletas Beach

To get to Las Caletas Beach from Puerto Vallarta or Nuevo Vallarta, book a tour with Vallarta Adventures and sail with our expert guides. The beach is private so only our boats are allowed to dock there. Your trip to Las Caletas beach is completely customizable, so you can pick and choose from a variety of activity options, making it the best beach day for the whole family. You can even add on activities at the gift shop once you arrive. The Beach Club and gift shop are located in the center of the stretch of beach, with paths branching off to different activities.

Behind the Beach Club, you’ll find the Kids Adventure Park, Guided Nature Walk, Sports Center, and Spa. Areas for lounging and relaxing flank the central beach area in front of the beach club, and the main activities occur on either end. On one side, you can scuba dive or go flyboarding near the pier, or head into the jungle for a fun animal encounter. On the other side, you’ll find the Teen Adventure Cove, Marine Life Encounters, and Parasailing. There is something for every member of the family!

Take a hike through the lush jungle and learn about the local flora and fauna. Keep your eyes open for playful monkeys, exotic parrots, and other animals who call this jungle home.

Tips for Travelers

Many types of sunscreens are harmful to coral reefs and marine life. Use a mineral sunscreen labeled “reef-safe” and check with your guide to make sure it is acceptable. Remember to drink lots of water, as it is easy to get caught up in all the fun and get dehydrated.
