    The center of all the action in Old Town Puerto Vallarta is the Malecon. Whether you choose to go for a morning jog before the crowds assemble, visit the high end luxury galleries, sample tequila, watch the waves or enjoy a picturesque lunch, the Malecon is a must see for PV visitors.

    One of the most charming and secluded corners of Puerto Vallarta is Quimixto, a tiny beach village of about 250 families only accessible by water. Taking a water taxi from Boca de Tomatlan takes about 25 minutes over calm waters to reach this fabulous spot which is sure to be a highlight of your vacation in Puerto Vallarta.

    Canopy Adventure Park

    3 reviews

    This was just plain fun. Tips: 1) If you have the option of driving the van or the "hog" for the 45 min trip to the site, I would suggest the van. 2) Don't do this if you're afraid of heights - Why were there 6 women in my group who had this problem? 3) Relax. They adhere to all ...

    Playa de los Muertos

    21 reviews

    Great little hidden beach. You have to walk through a bit of jungle to get there, but you get to walk past a sweet old cemetary (de los muertos). Once you get there, you can climb big rocks and see blue footed boobies. A nice get-away from the get-away.
