Ziplining, Snorkeling, boat rides, ATV tours, speedboating, incredible nightlife, and a wealth of culinary options to choose from – it never ends. Outdoor activities are the bread and butter of sunny Puerto Vallarta.
However, if the quiet life is more your thing or you’d like a day off, you’ll find droves of people strolling along the beautiful Malecón Boardwalk. This famous beachside promenade is lined with contemporary sculptures, art, lounges, nightclubs, and much more.
You could even take in the whole of the picturesque Zona Romantica (perfect for photos) if you know the right place to look for. Or, if you’d like to take a trip through the annals of PV history, it’s worth adding a trip to Old Vallarta to your itinerary.
In the cities cobblestone center (near old Vallarta), the embellished Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe can be found standing elegantly tall surrounded by several boutiques and restaurants.
Moving towards the city’s coast, it’s hard to miss the peculiar sail-shaped frame that becomes particularly photo-worthy at night when bathed with blue light – Los Muertos Pier. This Pier is found on an exquisite beach of the same name that’s often coated with beach blankets, parasols, and happy bathers.
Why Puerto Vallarta tours are the way to go
However, despite its small and walkable size, you’ll find that there’s still a lot of ground to cover. There’s just so much to see and do. Instead of carrying around a giant map or having your eyes glued to Google maps all day, it’s worth joining a city tour.
Tours are another good thing that Puerto Vallarta is full of. However, they’re spread nicely overall activities and interests. There are speedboating and canopy bundle tours for action-lovers. Food and drink tours for foodies/gourmets. There are even a few tours during which you’ll have the pleasure of riding a mule! And snorkeling tours off the coast nearby the Marieta islands to scout out the local fish.
Perhaps one of the most memorable tours is undertaken just off the coast in the Bay of Banderas. Every year, from late fall to late winter, colossal humpback whales arrive in the bay to the delight of whale watchers, tourists, and local onlookers.
These whales are famous for putting on an extraordinary show of leaping from the water and falling back into the water with an enormous splash, sending waves off in every direction.
However, as always, walking tours of the city stand head and shoulders above the rest in terms of popularity and practicality. Why? Well, it’s just a good place to start.
A walking tour helps you to gain an idea of the cities layout and where everything is. Essentially, a walking tour switches on your inner-GPS.
Your tour guide will enhance your trip
Better yet, tour guides know the area arguably better than anyone else; it’s their job to, after all. They’ll point you in all right directions and might even take you off the beaten tourist path to find those “hidden gems” where the locals hang out.
Your tour guide will open up part of the city that you otherwise wouldn’t have heard about. They know the area’s history, people, culture, and nuances like the back of their hand.
So, if you struggle to find your feet in a new place or just want to kick back and enjoy an exciting guided tour, why not do just that?
