On this route, we will visit 3 amazing sites: Chimo, La Sacatoza and Majahuitas, located between 20 and 26 nautical miles from Puerto Vallarta. Chimo offers spectacular columns that rise from the ocean floor covered with small invertebrate organisms such as nudibranchs, seahorses, gobies and blennies – ideal for photographers of the macro world. Passing through the shallow and calm waters of La Sacatoza and Majahuitas, we can find interesting rock formations, sea turtles, garden eels, different types of rays and schools of colorful fish. You can also experience one of the most anticipated encounters: diving with the Giant Pacific Manta. There are beautiful sites to see above the surface as well with virgin beaches and the lush vegetation of our incredible Sierra Madre Mountains.
