Ohhhh I loved my trip to Puerta Vallerta when I was there! I went with a gf about 5 years ago. We swam with dolphins, ziplined, rode ATVs, and layed out on the beach and had all inclusive. It wasn’t much more expensive for the all inclusive. THe weather was perfect it rained a bit each day then was sunny and beautiful kinda like Hawaii. The people were very nice. DON’T take the $20 day boat ride that’s supposed to be like a party/booat ride to another island for the day. IT WAS AWFUL!! WE booked our excursions thru the hotel and paid cash and got a 20% discount. Oh we also did like a little spa thing too. WAy worth it!!

There has been a lot of talk about violence/crime in PV since 22 Carnival cruisers were robbed while on tour there. The cruiselines pulled out for a while but are now back making regular stops there.

I found PV to be nice enough, not my favorite place in Mexico and not the most beautiful. If you want beauty go to Zihuatanejo, very pretty there.

I went zip lining in PV.  It was amazing!  Highly recommend it.

I love puerto vallarta!!!I have only been once with girlfriends and we had so much fun. I don’t remember the name of the resort we were at but it wasn’t that expensive & was safe and very nice. Gorgeous beach!! You will love it 🙂

My boyfriend and I went over the summer and LOVED it! We stayed at the Garza Blanca resort, got a great deal from Groupon, and did the all inclusive.

We went zip lining, and if I could have gotten him off the beach we would have swam with dolphins. Also, check out the zoo they will let you feed and hold the baby tigers!

@lybarra:  I forgot to add that you should check Trip Advisor for activities. That’s where we found out about the zoo and our ziplining trip.

I was in Puerto Vallarta about 7 years ago, with my best friend. We were 20 at the time, and had a blast. It was our first trip out of the country & to Mexico.. Since then I’ve been to Cancun, and prefer Cancun. PV was much more laid back and quiet, and we were looking for more of the party atmosphere — but quiet is perfect for a honeymoon! We did an excursion where we went on a booze cruise & snorkled, it was fun! Overall we really enjoyed our trip and PV was a great place to go.
