    Depart from Puerto Vallarta Marina on a stylish vessel to begin your sublime sail into the sunset. Cruise across the calm waters of Banderas Bay to the serene and secluded cove of Las Caletas; feel your feet sink into the soft sands of the beach as you disembark the boat and awaken your senses to the entrancing setting. Watch torches flicker, hear the waves lap the shore and listen to melodious music permeate the air as you take a torch-lit path to your dining destination.

    Take a seat at your beachside table and enjoy the ambience of the candle-bathed scenery; select from sizzling steak, freshly caught fish or succulent chicken, all of which come accompanied by fresh vegetables, crisp salads, and handmade tortillas. Delve into a delicious dessert buffet after your main, pleasuring your palate with tropical fruits, indulgent brownies, and locally inspired rice pudding.

    Let the pulsating beat of native drums summon you to the outdoor amphitheater, the sacred space in which the spectacular show is to unravel. Hypnotic and hallucinatory, the incredible performance is sure to leave you spellbound; watch in wonder as stories of ancient civilizations are depicted through dance and music, marveling at the astounding agility of costumed contemporary dancers.

    Relax beneath the sparkling stars during your return journey to Puerto Vallarta, where the enchanting evening concludes.

    Not Worth the Price

    , Jul 2022
    My group attended the 7p show. We arrived on the boat then set sail an hour to arrive to a small island where the actual show was held. The boat ride there was ok, drinks were available, and the snacks were not appetizing at all. We finally arrive to the island and it’s beginning to rain so after everyone is finally seated and given raincoats we were instructed to leave the raincoats to eat first since it started to rain. This made no sense because we got wet and after we ate it continued to rain. The food was subpar but ate because we still had the show and another hour boat ride back. Once we were finished eating we walked in the rain back to our seats which were not the best since we had to get up. I wish the process they had was better in the event of rain. Had they started the show anyway maybe it would’ve been better I’m not sure. Most of the time was spent on a boat, food wasn’t that great, and I was soaking wet and dirty. Not my cup of tea

    Due to inclement weather, unfortunately the show was canceled so I can't comment on the show, but the boat ride and dinner experience was good. The crew members on the ship kept us entertained and despite rain and thunder, they managed to leave us with a memorable experience.

    Don’t see it in the rain.

    I know the weather cannot be controlled, but please do not attend the show if it’s raining. It ruined the experience for me. This was the 3rd time I’ve seen the show and the 1st time it was raining and it’s a completely different experience. For the safety of the performers, they couldn’t do many of the performances they can when it’s dry. That’s understandable and was expected. They did the best they could, but I would still not recommend the show in the rain. The trails were all muddy and slick. The amphitheater seats were soaked so too became our butts. The employees did provide us with plastic rain coats upon request but mine was dirty and rubbed the dirt into my button up shirt. Better than being rained on but still. The dinner was buffet style and NOTHING was labeled. Had no idea what things were so had to ask the employees so many questions that could have all been avoided with signs. It didn’t help that it was poorly lit. The wait staff was very friendly and prompt. And the performers still did an amazing job given the rainy conditions. S

    Being from Las Vegas we've seen alot of Cirque du Soleil shows so when we heard there was that sort of show here in PV we had to check it out. This show is simply spectacular, the entire location is so beautiful and it's amazing how this all takes place in the middle of the jungle. The performers were all so talented and this show rivals any show in Las Vegas, it is worth every single dollar spent and then some. The boat ride was beautiful there and back. Dinner was delicious and our wait staff was so kind. Our family made memories to last us forever. Thank you.

    Amazing Experience, Don’t miss it!

    Definitely worth the price! The crew is great on the boat trip there and back…great service, fun show they out on while going back Las Caletas. Las Caletas is gorgeous. They have master planned this show and experience. There are a lot of people that go to this event on several boats, but they organize it well. The arrival is magical, and the candles and torches make it romantic and interesting. The show is amazing! If you like Cirque du Soleil, you will like this show. The multiple “restaurants” where you dine after the show are ocean front and the food is good.

    Good: Dinner was nice. Buffet style and food was decent. It’s a beautiful place and the show was great. Cool acts. The staff was all very nice. Bad: The music on the boat was SOOOO loud. I know it’s damaging hearing. Bring ear plugs! The boat ride is NOT romantic with such loud party music blasting in your ear.

    The boat ride was fun the crew is great and helpful. It rained as soon as we got to the beach, but they shifted us to the restaurant before the show where it’s typically show first. It rained a bit during the show but everything was handled appropriately and they hand out umbrellas on the boat if there’s a chance of rain. The performance and music mixing was great.

    Adventure, Romance and Culture

    To begin this excursion on a catamaran across Banderas Bay set the tone for our arrival to Las Caletas Beach where we were greeted by performers in costume along the path to our dinner. The food was delicious and the setting was romantic as we ate at our own table in the beautiful tropical jungle of southern Banderas Bay. After dinner we walked to the stage at the base of an ancient pyramid where we were mesmerized by the performances of an all star cast. This is an excursion that must be included with any visit to Puerto Vallarta.

    Ohmygoodness, the sunset cruise was soooo beautiful! And once we got to the location for the show it was picturesque. The show was AWESOME (Savia, I believe? Rhythms of the Night)! The candlelit dinner was very tasty, with the view of PVR/Banderas Bay at night? So memorable. The ride back to the Marina was sooo amazing and FUN! Definitely recommend, for all ages! (though the cruise there and back has alcohol served to adults, and gets a little lively on the return)

    From the boat ride to the dinner and performance, the whole experience was amazing. There was so much thought placed into this trip, it’s insane. The entertainment was so good too. The food was amazing, made you want seconds and thirds. The performances were out of this world. This is a must do! Highlight of our trip for sure.
