One of the great things about Puerto Vallarta is that even though it has a lot of modern buildings and facilities, it has been able to hang on to its Old Mexican charm. Do not be surprised to see old farmers and their donkeys delivering their wares in some regions of the city.
In the shops, you can purchase crafts made by the local Indians. These crafts are made still using methods that were used hundreds of years ago.
This resort is a favorite stop for cruise liners. As they arrive into the modern marina, passengers are eager to go in organized sightseeing tours and explore this adorable city.
Of all the activities and places to see in Puerta Vallarta, possibly the best and most fascinating is to the Marieta Islands. Take a kayaking tour to the ‘hidden beach’ here as you can only reach it by swimming or kayaking.

However, the type of great adventures and activities that can be done which are water related include swimming with dolphins, snorkeling, surfing, paddle boarding, paragliding, fishing, sailing or whale watching.
The nightlife in Puerto Vallarta is exceptional with many great bars and restaurants along the beach promenades. Enjoy the occasional all night long beach party!
