Rhythms of the Night Cruise in Puerto Vallarta

Having loved Puerto Vallarta, I came across many options of day cruises prior to my trip. Sunset cruises, drinking cruises, and even one with a show – Rhythms of the Night!

What made me book this cruise was the fact that the show was ran by a previous Cirque de Soleil choreographer. There I was putting my credit card info into the excursion website. I booked through Puerto Vallarta Tours which has sales almost all the time!


I bought the tickets for about $56 per person instead of $110!

The cruise leaves every night at 3 times – 530pm, 7pm and 8pm. It’s about 4.5 hours long and includes many items so you will not have to go out after!

What’s Included:

– Open bar on the boat – punch, drinks, beer etc.

– Music on the boat

– A wonderful ride to the Las Caletas island where the “Rhythms of the Night” show is – a similar to Cirque de Soleil style

– Candlelight dinner on a private beach

– Dinner and wine on the beach

– Live music everywhere

– Candle lit paths to explore the island

The show was really good! I’ve gone to Cirque de Soleil shows before and they usually cost me more than $100 just to get into the door. The choreographer did such a great job, the show was upcloser with only about 10 rows to view it, and the performers came up to you!

Drinks and dinner were delicious. On the boat back, we just looked up at the stars and danced until we arrived back at Puerto Vallarta.

I’ve read other reviews that this excursion was a great choice to do. There are day rides to the Las Caletas Islands as it is pristine, but there’s no show in the day. Guess that’s the only thing missing from this cruise is that it’s past sunset, so there’s no bathing or enjoying the beaches because it’s too dark.

I’d definitely see the show again and go to the island in the day for some tanning and swimming.

    1. Hey! I used http://puertovallartatours.net/ for all my excursions. There’s also Vallartaadventures.com that I compared prices too but the sales on the first site are super good, 50% off or more at times. It’s one of my fav trips because of the variety of things to do there. Looking forward to next Sunday 🙂

    Have only ever been to one Cirque du Soleil in London, but that was really impressive! Glad you had fun! 🙂
