Mexico Spotlight: Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit

By Kimberly Fidler 08/05/2014

At Get Away Today we're going loco over Mexico! We can't believe how many great deals there are and how much there is to do. This past week our agents have been focused on Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit. Here are some of their best travel tips and top recommendations of what to do and where to stay:

First of all, the best time to visit Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit is November through May. And December - March is whale migration season, so that is especially awesome. The Riviera Nayarit is spread out and features a lot of resort style properties. Its neighbor Puerto Vallarta, is only about 15 minutes away and has resorts as well, but also more high rise and boutique hotels.

Both areas have amazing beaches and are close to the mountains and amazing culture. Downtown Puerto Vallarta is home to the Malecon Boardwalk and a great shopping and dining district. If you're traveling in December, you'll want to be sure to check out the Our Lady Guadalupe processions that take place in the historic churches.

Some of our agents' favorite family activities in the area include the Pirate Ship by Day excursion, zip lining, swimming with dolphins, or visiting a Mexican ranch for a fiesta. And of course, the beach!



And as far as resorts go, these are our agents' top three picks:

Iberostar Playa Mita - All inclusive resort includes all meals, daily activities, nightly entertainment, non-motorized water sports and more.

Occidental Grand Neuvo Vallarta - Another all-inclusive resort that also includes all meals and beverages, daily and nightly entertainment, a supervised kids club for kids 4-12 and more.

Crown Paradise Club Puerto Vallarta - This all-inclusive resort includes all of the regular inclusions, plus a huge water park with nine water slides, two zip lines and luxurious pool areas for adults. As an added bonus, two kids 12 and under stay free when staying with two adults.

Our agents would love to help you plan the perfect vacation to Puerto Vallarta and the Riviera Nayarit. Book online or call our vacation experts at 855-GET-AWAY.
