Things to Do in Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta truly offers something for everyone. There are dozens of activities to choose from or you can do nothing at all but enjoy the beautiful ocean scenery and tropical climate. It is heaven for anyone who enjoys a variety of beach activities, from whale watching to parasailing. If you are feeling really brave, you can bungee jump over the Pacific or try your hand at windsurfing, snorkeling, scuba diving, jet skiing or deep sea fishing. The options are endless—just like the miles and miles of pristine coastline.

Looking for activities away from the beach? Cultural events and activities abound. Museums, theaters and art galleries welcome you with warm Mexican charm. You can bike the resort on a Harley or hike through the jungle to a remote waterfall. Mountain biking down scenic roads is a thrill. Or better yet, you can view it all from the sky in a hot air balloon. Be sure to talk to your Destination Expert to plan your next getaway to this Mexican hot spot.

Be sure to check out the downloadable Puerto Vallarta Travel Guide for more information on things to do in the area. Our destiantion concierge can help arrange any and all activities to make your stay in Puerto Vallarta as exciting and hassle-free as possible.

Horseback Riding

Casual riders can rent horses along the beach and take in the beautiful scenery or catch a gorgeous sunset. For the more serious rider, be sure to enjoy an extended jungle tour. Begin the ride riverside and enjoy the beautiful subtropical vegetation and majestic views of Puerto Vallarta. Bring your swimsuit and take a dip in the crystal waters of the river.

There are distinctly different beach zones with more than forty individual beaches, making Puerto Vallarta a favorite destination for the beach lover. The first zone is north of Puerto Vallarta.

Even further north, the beaches of Banderas Bay are pristine and quiet.
