Enjoying a fantastic romantic dinner for two will be easy to arrange in this city poised for superb Mexican and international cuisine.
Variety of Activities
Because Puerto Vallarta is surrounded by both mountains and ocean, there are so many wonderful activities to enjoy on your honeymoon. From yacht charters to romantic fire-lit dinners in secluded beaches, there are tours to suit your mood. Adventurous honeymooners can take to the jungle on a zip-line excursion, crossing river worn canyons and waterfalls, while those looking for more relaxation may wish to experience a whale watching tour or visit the Botanical Gardens for the afternoon.
The climate in Puerto Vallarta will impress no matter what time of year you get married. The city boasts more than 300 days of sunshine a year and the temperatures rarely go below 70ºF. The winter months are particularly pleasant while the summer will offer warm ocean temperatures for perfect scuba diving experiences and surfing.
For honeymooners arriving from North America, Puerto Vallarta is a convenient destination, not only because of lower costs of flights but also because of the number of direct flights that you can find from most major cities. You will also find you won’t need a great deal of spending money thanks to the favorable exchange rates that Mexico offers for your dollars.
