Senor Frog's

Restaurant | "Senor Frogs"

Quote:
Senor Frogs is a fun Mexican bar that is very popular with the college and spring break set. The bar has island music playing and "yard tall drinks" for your enjoyment. They also offer whistle shots and a dancing wait staff to ensure that you never get bored. We went at lunch, so the wildness factor was kept to a minimum, but the bar was still fun and a nice break from shopping in the heat. In the evenings the party heats up and the bar probably becomes slightly less family-friendly and focuses more on its primary clientele (young adults who are ready to drink and get wild). The food is decent but pretty much standard bar fare, and the drinks are good but nothing out of the ordinary. It's worth it to ...Read More

Rancho Ojo de Agua Horseback Riding Tour

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction

Quote:
Rancho Ojo de Agua is run by a delightful Mexican family in Puerto Vallarta. They offer horseback riding tours around the villages near Puerto Vallarta. Tours range from 3 hours to overnight. My family took a 3-hour tour, which we booked on our own, and it was delightful. Our group's riding skills ranged from nonexistent to decent, and for the most part, we all had a sense of adventure.

Glass-Bottom Los Arcos Boat Tour

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction

Quote:
This is a fabulous low-key tour that only lasts about 45 minutes (but it can last longer if you stop at Lover's Beach). You will board a glass-bottom boat with about 8 to 10 people and cruise around the bay. You will get to see fish through the glass bottom and catch a good glimpse of Lover's Beach (which is near the arch and accessible only by boat; there is an option to get off the tour here and get a ride back later, but we just stayed on the boat since this beach was crowded). There is a leisurely cruise around the arch, complete with lots of time for taking pictures, looking at the rock formation, and checking out the sea lions that live on the rocks.Once this is complete, you sail back...Read More
