Exciting activities for a weekend in Puerto Vallarta
Escape to Puerto Vallarta for a weekend, and make the most of your express trip by doing exciting activities. .
Puerto Vallarta is a city full of tourist possibilities; Among which we can highlight the activities. Do not wait until you have a vacation. A weekend is enough to meet and want to come back for more. While there are many people who prefer to travel longer, we recommend that you give yourself the opportunity to travel expressly (2 to 3 days) and do exciting activities.
That’s why we share a list of activities that you should consider in your escape to Puerto Vallarta:
1 – Hiking along the Palo María river or on the way to Colomitos beach
Hiking is an environmentally friendly activity that has become popular in Puerto Vallarta in recent years. The routes to the Palo María river and Colomitos beach will test your resistance: in both you have to walk approximately 40 minutes to reach the destination.
After these 40 minutes for Palo Maria river you only reach the first waterfall; Some people say there are ten waterfalls in total, others more. Touring all the waterfalls is an exciting experience. If you are not familiar with hiking or are not accompanied by an experienced person, avoid going beyond the first waterfall; Do not put yourself at risk.
On the other hand, for Colomitos you can go hiking or pay to be taken and brought in a boat. The cost depends on where you leave. Click here for more information about Colomitos.
Any route you choose can be done in about 4 hours (from the start of the tour to the moment you return), so you still have plenty of time on your express trip.
2 – Paddle board or snorkel in Los Arcos
It is one of the exciting activities par excellence in Puerto Vallarta. We are not referring to Los Arcos of the malecon, but the huge rock formations south of the city. Spending a pleasant moment in contact with nature has no comparison, and doing it next to these giant rocks is an unforgettable experience. To do any of these activities you have to hire a paddle board service or tours. The paddle board service takes approximately 2 hours and the tours approximately 7 hours.
It is a very exciting activity that everyone should do once in a lifetime: your heart speeds up when you fly between vines and trees. The zip line costs depend on the company you choose. There are some that offer activity + food packages and others that only offer the zip line.
4 – Tour the boardwalk at night
An activity that does not cost much money. Walking and enjoying the boardwalk at night is a completely different experience from the day.
At night you have the opportunity to see the beautiful lighting, listen to the music of the clubs and find interesting characters with whom you can take photos. People walking are more encouraged to have a good time of fun; there are promotions in restaurants and bars; and the marigalante pirate ship releases its traditional fireworks.
So, the boardwalk can be done in less than 1 hour. If you enter the bars, restaurants or stop to rest the total time depends entirely on you. We recommend that you spend your last night of the express trip enjoying the boardwalk, you will not regret it.
