About Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Hollywood discovered this little fishing village back in the 1960's, and since then luxury resorts and bougainvillea-covered villas have flourished in the delightful seaside climate. Yet hints of past tranquility remain: cobbled courtyards where the locals hold their markets, and superb sport-fishing just offshore.

This was the highlight of the trip. We hired a taxi driver who charged us $40 to give us a tour of downtown. We really didnt know where to go or, what to do. I asked the driver "if you had a lazy day off what would you do? He took us to a small a town (I can't remember the name). In town we had a local fisherman give us a tour of the bay. Evidently Steven Spielberg has his home here, if this helps. We ended up on a small beach call Las Animas. You can arrove here by boat. OMG the food was amazing!!!!!! We ordered a dz oysters. They literally went to a boat, grabbed the days catch and served us.......I could have had another 3 dzs... amazing!!!

I didn't get to explore downtown Puerto itself. I did the Las Caletas excursion and it was worth every penny. The boat ride out to the beach is a good 45 minutes but as soon as you get onboard they offered beverages both alcoholic and non. The entertainment staff on the boat were amazing and they made 45 minutes feel like 5. The beach itself has kayaking, paddleboarding, snorkeling, and zip lining. Lunch and drinks are also included. Do this excursion, it was a blast.

This was an awesome port to visit. We did the Resort Stay. It was not long enough. We ate at the buffet they had and it was so delicious. The wait staff was great at the buffet and at the pool and beach area. The pools were amazing and enjoyed the ocean and sand as well. This was a fabulous excursion and well worth the money.

We did not do an excursion. We took a cab for the day from inside the compound so felt comfortable with the driver as we were checked out and back into the loading dock through guards. We had a great 4 hours of touring all of the highlights of a beautiful city and tropical forests. The stop at Mr. Toquilla with a free margarita was fun. all for $60+tip. Would do it again with Manuel.

Such a colorful place to explore! Found lots of cute boutiques to shop & friendly street vendors everywhere you turn. If you ever get a chance to sit in on the shopping seminars they have on the boat before porting you can learn about hidden gems (stores/food) + there was a "scavenger hunt" where you could receive special charms for a bracelet.
