Rhythms of the Night

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by davilin88 on December 11, 2004

Vallarta Adventure's two-deck catamaran took us from the marina and across the bay to a secluded site called Caletas. The crew was very entertaining, and there was open bar onboard. After a spectacular sunset, we went ashore at Caletas, up a path lit by torches and where dancers in pre-Columbian costumes posed among the rocks, to a setting of candlelit tables on several terraces overlooking the ocean.

My wife and I were shown to a table for two near the water, with the sound of waves almost at our feet and a beautiful view of the city lights reflected off the bay. Wine and a buffet dinner were included, and the food was decent buffet fare. The wine was not so good.

After dinner, we were shown to the amphitheater, where it was quite a wait for the show to start, but once it started, it was gorgeous. Dancers in colorful costume enacted legends of the pre-Columbian cultures on a stage set against the dramatic jungle backdrop. One may almost feel the presence of the ancient spirits of Mexico. After the show, on the boat ride back to the marina, the lights on the boat are dimmed, soft music plays, and with the lights of Puerto Vallarta for a backdrop, it's a good time to fall in love all over again, no matter whether you are newlyweds (we had some onboard) or celebrating your 25th anniversary (those too).
