Nuevo Vallarta features a wide variety of things to do during the vacation of your dreams. On land or in the sea, choose your favorite activity and enjoy it to the max. If you want to get in touch with nature then there are a whole host of fantastic activities to choose from, such as whale watching, swimming with dolphins, sea lion shows, horseback riding through the jungle, and even releasing newborn turtles into the sea at the reserve.
If you're looking for a rush of adrenaline, then why not try the diversity of water sports on offer, or take a tour that departs from the marina and stops at lots of exciting destinations. Don't forget the golf courses, regattas, or a visit to the water park.
Among the many water sports available in the area, you can enjoy the adventure of snorkeling, diving, deep-sea fishing, windsurfing, parasailing, taking a catamaran or yacht tour, banana boat rides or even speeding along on a wave runner. There is also a fun water park called Splash, where you can climb to the very top of a 65-foot tower and then glide down one of the exciting slides all the way to the pool far below. However, if you want to relax, then a trip down the slow river may be more your style.
The dolphin programs are thrilling experiences that you'll remember and cherish for the rest of your life. The dolphin center in Nuevo Vallarta features educational programs that offer you a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to interact face-to-face with these amazing creatures.
Talking about marine mammals, a special mention should be made about the beautiful and impressive humpback whales that visit the coast of Vallarta between the months of December and April. During this time, you can get close to them and watch them play with their young, take pictures of these gorgeous animals, hear their song, and if you're lucky enough, you might even get the chance to touch one!
A visit to the turtle reserve come highly recommended, where you'll be provided with lots of fascinating information about sea turtles by means of a video and a chat. Later, guided by a marine biologist, you'll walk along the beach in search of turtles laying their eggs and then help release the newborn babies into the sea. This tour is perfect for children and grown-ups alike and it is a unique way of really getting in touch with nature.
Golf enthusiasts have options here too. The Mayan Palace golf club, designed by Jim Lipe, and the golf course El Tigre, designed by Robert Von Hagge and Rick Baril, are just two of the many choices available in Nuevo Vallarta to practice your swing. You can enjoy this marvelous sport among the rivers, lakes and hills that will really put your game to the test, while still having a gorgeous view of the Pacific Ocean in the background.
If you want to get to know and discover this marvelous tourist destination in a completely unique way, unlike you ever imagined, then enjoy an exciting adventure on horseback. You can ride through the jungle, explore the ranches near Nuevo Vallarta or even canter down the gorgeous, golden beaches as the sun sets on the horizon.
