So I’m trying to do this from memory because we stayed in Marina Vallarta a few months ago but from the outside from what I can remember is the club velas is much nicer looking.  The only thing is the Marina is kinda it’s own little town but you’d still have to take a taxi into the main part of Puerto Vallarta.

There’s lots of fun places to eat  downtown so it depends what your plans are.  If you plan mainly to stay on the beach then it might be worth it so you don’t have to pick up and leave and go find the bus or take a taxi or whatever everytime you want to eat.  But if you plan to go downtown or on whale watching trips or whatever on multiple days so you’re already going to be out and about then it might it might not be worth it to do the AI.

I went to PV a few years ago and did not do all inclusive. However, this was a trip with some friends, not a honeymoon. We felt it would be boring to eat in our hotel for every meal and we really enjoyed exploring the town. There are some great restaurants downtown! We just asked the front desk what they recommended. I’m sure we saved money in the long run.

Now, we also didn’t stay in a 5 star beautiful resort that may have 5-6 restaurants so you may want to take that into consideration. We’re doing AI for our honeymoon in Punta Cana but that’s b/c we really can’t/don’t want to leave the resort. I feel that PV is a much safer place where you can roam the streets.

Hope that helps – and check out snorkeling/whale watching. we saw whales and it was incredible!!!
