If you’re in desperate need of a beach vacation—Puerto Vallarta, Mexico might be the spot for you. What really left me in awe of this paradise-like location is how it’s surrounded by mountains. It’s honestly the perfect combination of everything: nature, beach and culture. You’re bound to find an excursion that fits your preferences. Here are a few spots in Puerto Vallarta worth checking out!
This is an island filled with adventure for everyone in the family. You can book this excursion through Vallarta Adventures. Be sure to book as soon as you can, as the island has a capacity for visitors each day. You’ll travel by boat to Las Caletas for about 30 minutes. When you arrive, you’ll be taken aback by all the greenery and clear blue waters, which are not common on the beaches of Nuevo Vallarta. At Las Caletas, you can kayak, stand-up paddle board, snorkel or lay in a hammock to achieve that perfect sun-kissed tan. Teens can also enjoy the blob, zip lining and slide n’ fly which hurts like no other. There’s also ziplining and horse-back riding for kids ages 4-11.
