Puerto Vallarta Sights



Flamingos Review

Between Nuevo Vallarta and Bucerías, Flamingos is a string of relatively new hotels facing the broad, brown-sand beach that is virtually identical to those of its neighbors to the north and south. Shacks on the sand rent water-sports equipment, while showers serve to clean up guests returning to their high-rise, mainly all-inclusive hotels. At the south end of the beach, driftwood and the occasional scurrying crab are more obvious than in the manicured areas by the hotels. As one approaches Nuevo Vallarta, elaborate homes begin to spring up like solitary mushrooms, inhabited by those who can afford and desire privacy. Facilities: Showers, boogie boards, banana-boat rides, Jet Skis, parasailing.
