Hiking and Snorkeling Combo
Located on the south side of Bahia de Banderas, Colomitos still remains undiscovered by most. This beautiful little cove is a real treasure and well worth the hike to get there. The hike is approximately two miles each way. You'll cool off later with a refreshing snorkel at Colomitos Cove.
After traveling by air-conditioned van from the city, you will join your naturalist guide and small group along a hiking path that follows the coastline at the bottom of the Sierras and passes under the canopy of beautiful plumerias, palms and strangling ficuses. Occasionally, iguanas can be seen running across the path. Inhabiting the lower regions of these mountains, are red foxes, armadillos, skunks, raccoons, and mountain crabs. Along this path, you may see termite nests of impressive size, and the unique and precarious-looking nest of the yellow-winged cacique.
Once at Colomitos Cove, you'll go snorkeling among many colorful tropical fishes found in that area, including king angels, panamic sergeant majors, some puffer fishes, eels, and many other species. Before starting our hike back, you'll enjoy a picnic-style lunch of small sandwiches, snacks and water at the beautiful golden-sand beach.

This was such a fun and memorable experience! Our guide was great, he pointed out lots of different birds, iguanas and plant life while we were on the hike. The hike was very enjoyable, it was about 1.5 miles each way and would say it was a pretty moderate hike, there were some very steep parts but we just took it slow and stopped when we needed to. The snorkeling was great too! The water felt so nice after the hike and we were able to see a good variety of fish.

Our first time in PV, we selected this tour as we enjoy nature and love snorkelling. Our guide Christina was excellent and the entire team ensured we had a fantastic day. Even the packed lunches were excellent, highly recommend!

We loved this tour! The boat ride across the bay was exhilarating! The tour guides were fantastic! They provided lunch, beverages, and pushed hydration. The rain forest hike with Michael was incredible! When it ended on that secluded cove, oh my goodness! What a treasure! My first time snorkeling was tentative, but will be willing to give it another go. We want to come back to Puerto Vallarta for a longer visit and will definitely look up Eco Tours for our trip!

It was a rough and hard hike but the scenery was AMAZING and our tour guide was the best, super funny, sweet and very educated. After a rough and hard hike we got to refresh ourselves with a snorkeling experience... Loved it!
