Shore excursions typically go rain or shine -- and it’s raining. Pouring actually. We had thought we would go explore before our Sunset Sail but it didn’t look like there would be much of a sunset
Local festivals offer a great entrée to a new culture and, Puerto Vallarta is a terrific bet to experience them whenever you visit
With the US dollar strong against the Mexican Peso, a beach vacation in Puerto Vallarta is a good bet this time of year. The town oozes charm, starting with Old Vallarta, the city’s 1930s town center complete with cobblestoned square.
Fall is family time along Mexico's Pacific Coast whether you want to take a bike ride around town, practice your Spanish, head to a local festival or relax at an all-inclusive resort
“Fall is Family Time” is the topic of our Twitter Chat on Thursday, September 8, 2016 from 9pm – 10pm EDT. And you can win a vacation to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico!
Visit Mexico during an annual festival and you will have special insight into the country’s cultural traditions and heritage. Mexico, of course, is a lot more than the sum of its beaches, as wonderful as they are.

There are dolphin discovery programs run by this company all over the Caribbean but this park is different because for the same price (a little over $100) there is a challenge course, water slides, a water play area for younger kids, even a zipline over the slides).
Puerto Vallarta is known for its galleries and its food but it is probably known more as a cruise ship stop and for those visiting the all-inclusive resorts.
