Things to do in Puerto Vallarta

In a city as vibrant as Puerto Vallarta, there are a number of things that you must check out. Take a walk down to Zona Romantica or The Malecón and check out the many shops, restaurants and bars that line the waterway. Make sure you take in the historic Mexican architecture and along the way, take in the Cathedral at The Church of Our Lady Guadalupe with its dome crowned by angels. For more cultural events, take a boat cruise at dusk with Rhythms of the Night by Vallarta Adventures. You’ll take a peaceful cruise along the bay enjoying the lights that line the harbor. If you should find yourself in Puerto Vallarta in late February or early November, celebrate the Flower and Garden Festival and Dia de Muertos, respectively, at the Vallarta Botanical Gardens. If you’re looking for more active things to do in Puerto Vallarta, explore the local jungles just to the East or visit the National Park at the nearby Marieta Islands where you can scuba, rent out kayaks or boats and watch the migration of whales. There’s something for everyone with an avid thirst for adventure and discovery in Puerto Vallarta, limited only by your imagination.
