1.) Bahía de Banderas

To be honest, you can’t miss Bahía de Banderas if you’re already staying in Puerto Vallarta. You see, it’s one of the largest bays in the area and where most of the hotels are situated. 

Not only that, there’s heaps to do around the bay itself. Once here, make sure to check out Conchas Chinas Beach which is perfect to visit if you fancy a day by the coastline. Though, a heads up, you will want to bring your own parasol and sunlounger if you’re spending longer at the beach itself. There is very rarely anyone renting equipment on this beach.

Afterwards, head on over to Los Muertos Beach. This is where the main promenade area of Puerto Vallarta is and well worth visiting for an afternoon.

You see, you can spend the day on the beach, and the early evening in the local bars and restaurants that line the shoreline. We loved La Palapa Restaurant for dinner. Just be sure to reserve a table for sunset – the views are incredible.
