Puerto Vallarata is one of my favorite places to visit for many reasons; the ease in getting there, inviting beaches, outstanding dining choices, loads of shopping, fun nightlife and many options for enjoying the culture. There are also terrific outdoor experiences for every level of adrenaline junkies.
Here are my top 3 adventures in Puerto Vallarta that are offered by a company appropriately called Vallarta Adventures:
1. Adrenaline junkies will love the Extreme Zip Line Adventures tour that combines ziplining through the jungle with driving off-road, all-terrain vehicles. This all-day excursion includes the “Superman Zipline” where riders hang from a cable and soar headfirst above the trees. There is an option to ride down a fun, intense water slide and the tour concludes with a thrilling leap off of a platform ending with a pendulum swing.
2. The sunsets in Puerto Vallarta are majestic and the perfect way to experience one is on a sunset yacht cruise. Gather at the marina late in the afternoon to sail through Banderas Bay so you can enjoy the majestic colors on a peaceful sailing. Sip a glass of wine, snack on delicious appetizers or visit the open bar all while chilling on a luxurious boat.
3. Las Caletas is one of the top four secluded tropical beaches in the world as it is accessible only by boat. This all-day tour offers something for every age and is a terrific value. A buffet lunch, open bar, snorkeling, kayaking and stand up paddleboards are just a few of the options guests can choose from. There are inviting hammocks for you to unwind in as well as parrot and monkey encounters. Should you desire parasailing that is also available.
