When summer begins, the rains too, and with them greener colors everywhere, more abundant rivers, more propitious paths to explore with paths full of vegetation.
We share some places and activities that you should not miss this summer while visiting the paradise that is Puerto Vallarta.
If you are wondering where to go in Puerto Vallarta, the first option you should consider is the Malecón. This mile-long pedestrian walkway represents the essence of the place and has many activities.
In this place you can see many palm trees, sculptures and of course, the sea. And if you want to delight your eyes with a unique show, we recommend you witness the ritual of the Papantla Flyers at nightfall.
2. Los Muertos Pier
This space works like a conventional dock for boats, and is designed with nuances of modern architecture that is functional, harmonized with the natural beauty of the place and, above all, attractive.
We recommend that you visit this place at night as it looks much more striking due to its lighting.
3. Marietas Islands
The small, uninhabited Islas Marietas are located in the Bay of Banderas off the Pacific coast of Mexico.
A UNESCO-listed biosphere reserve, the islands are famous for their abundant wildlife and provide the opportunity to escape the crowds of many Mexican resorts, hop on a boat and explore the natural delights of the islands.

5. Viewpoint of the Cross
It is a place of relaxation and spiritual elevation for the locals who know it, from this point you can see the Mexican Pacific from Los Arcos on the south side, the center of Puerto Vallarta and on clear days to Punta Mita. This makes it a magnificent place for photography enthusiasts, for those who enjoy majestic sunsets and nature.
Going up requires a considerable physical effort, although it is worth it, there are several variants of routes to reach the Mirador de La Cruz, one is through Josefa Ortiz de Domínguez street, a straight uphill route whose slope increases as it approaches the viewpoint .
6. Fishing Tour
With its huge bay that gives access to the Pacific Ocean, the fishing in Puerto Vallarta and the areas north and south of Riviera Nayarit is some of the best in the world. Puerto Vallarta has been a tourist destination for decades and has always been an extraordinary place to fish for marlin, sailfish, tuna and dorado off the Pacific coast of Mexico.
Since the bay is so large, it takes a while from Puerto Vallarta to reach high par. But the trip is worth it because here you can catch the yellowfin tuna of your dreams. In the bay itself there is a lot of fish: sailfish, smaller tuna, snapper, rooster etc.
7. Botanical garden
You will not only enjoy the nature that surrounds you, the flowers, the trees, the exuberant jungle, but you will also be able to rest in one of the many armchairs and seats on the different terraces and simply relax with the sound of the breeze, the birds and the general calm of the place.
The Vallarta Botanical Garden is registered with Botanic Gardens Conservation International in Surrey, England, is a member of the Mexican Association of Orchidology, and is a non-profit institution. The botanical garden is also a bird reserve with the collaboration of ornithologists and is also a member of international bird conservation agencies.
