A few miles off the Punta Mita peninsula, several regal masses rise from the sea and beckon visitors to play.

Snorkelers and sunbathers are enchanted by the spectacular marine wildlife, which often includes sea turtles, stingrays, octopi, dolphins and humpbacked whales.

As extraordinary species of birds soar through the sky, Islas Marietas National Park will delight the all the senses.

Turtle Migrations on Sayulita's Beaches:

It is nothing less than a captivating sight as newly hatched Olive Ridley sea turtles struggle to depart their nests, then orient themselves to the ocean and make the long journey to their new home in the sea. In the summer, adult female turtles come ashore to lay eggs in protected dunes. Hatchlings emerge each fall and disappear into the surf, leaving only telltale indented trails and flipper marks

Dolphin Swims:

Punta Mita is a natural haven for marine life and a number of local operations offer chances to swim and bond with dolphins or even become a dolphin trainer for a day, giving children and adults a timeless and memorable afternoon with these magnificent creatures.

Tequila Tour:

Tequila is more than a drink: it is a town, a craft, a tradition, a livelihood. Visit the town of Tequila and tour the verdant agave fields; admire the architecture of the haciendas and take in the fragrant aroma of exquisitely tended gardens. Discover the process by which tequila is extracted and taste the finished product straight from the barrel. Allow those whose family history is steeped in the beverage explain the intricacies of its multi-layered taste, and enjoy authentic Mexican snacks.

It’s the scenic spot where locals go to unwind and stroll the hand-made cobblestone streets. Regardless of what draws people to Bucerias, the most consistent thing a visitor will notice is the abundance of smiles -- even the hard-working locals know they’ve staked out a piece of paradise.

El Faro Lighthouse:

At 110 feet, this iconic landmark greets those journeying from land and sea. Unlike a traditional lighthouse, El Faro houses the most romantic spot in the city: a circular cocktail lounge where live music and stunning sunset views of Puerto Vallarta and the deep blue waters of Banderes Bay can be enjoyed. There is no better after-dinner spot in all of Puerta Vallarta.
