Need Help Picking a Tour!!!

Hi! my husband and I will only be in PV for 5 nights (4 full days) over Labor Day weekend. We'll be doing AI at our resort and will likely spend most of our time chilling out there; however, we want to do at least one good tour. I've been looking at the following and is wondering if anyone has tried these and which one(s) you would recommend if we can only do one or maybe two.

Here are the choices:
Harris Tour's "Escape to Paradise"
Vallarta-Adventure's trip to Las Caletas
Princesa Yelapa: Pizota & Yelapa (Vagabundo)
Marietas Islands Snorkling

Also, if you have any better suggestions, please let me know!

It all depends on your interests. Harris Tours is a good company and their Escape to Paradise is basically a trip out into the "jungle" to visit some of the jungle restaurants, with lunch at one (lunch not included in the tour I believe). The scenery is nice and you can see some of the rivers.
Vallarta Adventures is a really good company with great staff who does all they can to entertain you and give you a good day. Las Caletas is a beautiful secluded beach, where you can snorkel, kayak, swim, or just veg on the beach. They have a beautiful hiking trail and you can get a massage (not included). Lunch is a pretty decent Mexican buffet. The trip over and back, you get to see the beautiful south shore of PV and drinks are available. I loved Las Caletas.
The Marietas, IMHO, is the best place for snorkelling around PV. You don't say who this trip is through, but again, if it's Val. Adventures, I highly recommend them. Most of these trips include snorkelling there, then some beach time for relaxation.
The Princesa Yelapa would probably be the closest thing to a "booze cruise", spending limited time at Pizota and Yelapa.
Hope this helps

Thanks for all the info!! It sounds like Las Caletas is everyone's favorite. I suppose it all depends on the weather!
