You'll find that most tours are cheaper if bought on-line, including Los Veranos.

<Have you done many of the local activities i.e., water sports, zip line, ATV tours, etc? As well as day trips from PV?>

Nope, I haven't, not in 20 years of going to PV (lol!) but that's just me.

I do check out local things, like going to Zumba classes most days, visiting the church, going to street fairs, book signings, art openings, stuff like that I hear about or find in the paper. I'm a huge fan of the Saturday morning farmers market.

For day trips once went south and toured around Boca, Chico's Paradise, El Eden (1/2 day taxi). And once north up to El Anclote the beach at Punta Mita (by bus). And have been over to Pitillal a few times (bus or taxi).

I've never rented a car, always just walk and use the bus and an occasional taxi (that's not an "at the mercy" situation, it's really the best way imo).

Los Veranos is the one that always comes up as most highly recommended. I know there are discounts making plans in advance online. But there is also the plus of waiting until you are there are seeing what the weather is like and what you feel like doing on different days.

Our weather rarely changes day to day and it's extremely unlikely any tour will be cancelled due to the weather, and, if it was, you would re-schedule or get a full refund.
Even during the rainy season, Los Veranos is not effected as their last tour is at 2pm, a long time before the rain arrives.

Very rarely do we get a whole day of rain, we need a storm off the coast for that. May happen 5 days a year, that's very little and what I call rare. Of course in the summer it will likely rain every day but usually only for 2 hours very late afternoon or a night, most tours finish before that.
