Things to Do in Puerto Vallarta

Of course, one of our favorite activities in Puerto Vallarta takes advantage of its ideal location along Banderas Bay on the Pacific Coast of Mexico. This idyllic place is full of peaceful beaches and gorgeous resort pools (many of which overlook the Bay). An afternoon spent lounging poolside, listening to the waves, will melt away stress! The waters surrounding Puerto Vallarta are also where you can spot humpback whales during the winter, and there are many opportunities to swim with dolphins (such as Puerto Vallarta Shore Excursion: Swimming with Dolphins). The more adventurous will be happy to know there are also opportunities for zip lining (such as the Puerto Vallarta Canopy Adventure) or snorkeling (such as the Snorkel Los Arcos tour).

After relaxing (or playing), there are still plenty of things to do in Puerto Vallarta. Plan a stroll along the Malecon, the seaside promenade located along the edge of downtown that features one-of-a-kind sculptures. You'll also pass many restaurants and shops along the way, so go ahead and work up an appetite. After dining, discover the many art galleries downtown showcasing paintings, photography, sculptures and jewelry.

With all these activities in Puerto Vallarta, it's easy to do as much or as little here as you like. There are many picturesque beaches from which to choose and in town you'll find no shortage of wonderful restaurants, offering coastal Mexican cuisine, seafood and more tempting options. The biodiversity of Puerto Vallarta, located near the Sierra Madre mountains, is rich and impressive in its range of flora and fauna.
