Puerto Vallarta Favorites

Jump to last reply

In a few weeks I'll be spending six nights at the CasaMagna Marriott in the sunny Puerto Vallarta Marina District with my husband and soon to be 17 year old son. We aren't the types to spend all day by the pool or on the beach and really enjoy exploring along with good food (all price ranges). I've started putting together a loose list of restaurants and things to do and would appreciate any input. What are your not to be missed restaurants, day trips and sights?

Restaurants - I already have a reservation at the Vista Grill. Also thinking about El Arrayan. What are your favorites? If anyone can recommend a few restaurants in the marina area that would be very helpful too.

Day Trip - Yelapa or Sayulita. Both, neither or somewhere else?

City Tour - Can anyone recommend a guide?

General sightseeing - Malecon, Zona Romantica, Botanic Gardens...please help me fill this in.

Snorkeling - Los Arcos? I'm trying to decide if we should even bother bringing our gear.

Thanks for any help.
