OUR FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO IN PUERTO VALLARTA AND PUNTA MITA

WHALE WATCHING

Between mid-December and mid-March, the humpback whales that reside near Alaska and Canada migrate to Puerto Vallarta to mate and give birth. You can take a boat to where they are spotted and see them up close or watch for them from the beach. Private whale watching tours are available

MARIETAS ISLANDS

Islas Marietas National Park is a great place to see dolphins, manta rays, and sea turtles. You can also explore rocky caverns while kayaking, scuba diving, or snorkelling. The Marietas Islands are also home to the famous Hidden Beach, also known as “Lover’s Beach.” Either way, you’ll love the gorgeous beach and sparkling water.

SNORKEL AND DIVE BANDERAS BAY

Banderas Bay boasts some of the most beautiful spots for scuba diving. You can visit a sunken ship near the beach of Mismaloya, dive where Jacques Cousteau has dived in the Marietas Islands, and visit Devil’s Canyon in Los Arcos. You can also explore underwater coves, spot unique rock formations, and swim with colorful fish
