    Must do when in PV. Lots of stores with very friendly non-pushy staff. Very clean. Lots of entertainment. The flea markets around there are definitely worth looking around.

    The transportation service was impeccable. Driver picked us up from the port in a private car, took us to destination quickly and safely. Gave us some history and a scenic tour of the city.

    Puerto Vallarta is an awesome destination for vacation! We had a great excursion experience with Vallarta Adventures, taking us to Yelapa and Majahuitas, feeding us, able to snorkel, kayak, ride a 4-wheeler, and visit some of the local community and vendors. The beach scene at Suyalita was a great vibe as well. A bit crowded, but the people are friendly and the food is excellent!

    Beautiful area in a marine reserve with lots of birds and amazing snorkelling. We saw blue-footed boobies and nesting pelicans. Definitely worth a boat trip out there to experience it.

    We had a wonderful experience at Playa Las Gemelas today. We wanted to go to a beach outside of PV proper and Yelapa seemed too far for two women traveling here for our first time. It was a Tuesday in November so it was quiet, which was welcomed. It seemed more locals, either from nearby towns or the condos on the beach. But the water was clean and clear with mild waves, the shells were gorgeous and the water temperature couldn't be beat. We Uber'd there instead of the bus. You're dropped on the side of the highway to take very steep and unkempt stairs down to the water (not handicap friendly), which opens up onto the beach. There, vendors make food, rent tables and chairs and have other fun things to look at / buy. You won't be disappointed.
