Explore this hidden side of Mexico in a Puerto Vallarta boat rental. Check out incredible beaches like Bahia de Banderas, and visit Bucerias for incredible oceanside views of the Pacific. Puerto Vallarta is among the top tourist destinations in Mexico. One of the most popular things to do is to head down to the south shore with its shimmering turquoise blue waters or Yelapa Town which features waterfalls, hiking and a hidden beach! Afterwards, you can head out to the boardwalk for a lovely stroll on the town.
Top Spots around Puerto Vallarta- Both on and off the shore, there are so many great places to see in Puerto Vallarta. Many people head over to Bucerias which is a great little town and surfer’s paradise. Another place you cannot miss is Bahia de Banderas which is one of the best snorkeling spots in the region. Another top destination is the Zona Romantica, which is filled with charming buildings and some great beaches.
Las Marietas Islands have been nicknamed the Mexican Galapagos. Another great destination for scuba and snorkeling, they are located just a few miles off the coast from Puerto Vallarta and are complete with secret beaches to kick back and relax on and are truly just a great sight to see whether from the deck or from the ocean depths!
Snorkeling/Scuba Diving- With your own boat, you have the freedom to go wherever you want. That said, you might want to be pointed in the right direction to really see some incredible stuff. One place you can’t miss is Los Arcos (the Arches) which is considered to be one of the best spots in the area. There are seasonal changes about the best places so ask your captain and see if he has any secret places that he knows about.
Fishing- It’s really hard to rank this a second. Puerto Vallarta is one of the best fishing destinations in Mexico. And that means a lot because Mexico has some of the finest fishing in the world. Whether you are looking for marlin, sailfish or tuna, the waters off Puerto Vallarta have some of the biggest fish in the game.
