Three Awesome Things to Do in Nuevo Vallarta

by Alyssa Daniells

Laze away at the oceanfront resort, or enjoy pulsating nightlife when the sun goes down. Puerto Vallarta’s close, smaller and lesser-known sibling, Nuevo Vallarta, offers fun and unique activities. Here are our top picks of things to do in Nuevo Vallarta.

1. Nuevo Vallarta Beach

Hey, Playa! If your dating profile makes claims like loving “long walks on the beach,” put your money where your mouth is and stroll the sprawling stretches of Playa Nuevo Vallarta. This stunning and seemingly endless beach is perfect for romance, or solo soul-searching in pristine peace. More off the beaten path than the famous beaches of Puerto Vallarta, we love Nuevo Vallarta’s serenity, sparkling ocean and sunsets.

2. Nuevo Vallarta Stage & Forum Theater

This popular dinner theatre has Las Vegas talent and exuberance, on an intimate and beach-relaxed scale. Expect musical entertainment combined with energetic dance performances, like a Rock n Roll Oldies tribute show and Broadway inspired-shows. This is a great way to enjoy some nightlife in Nuevo Vallarta as well as unexpected delights. You may opt out of the dinner component at 6 pm and attend the show at 7:30.

3. Aquaventuras Park

What could be more fun than cooling off from the hot Mexican sun than at a water amusement park? A family favourite suited for adult enjoyment too, Aquaventuras Park is a wonderful way to spend the day with the kids or feeling like a kid again. Along with a variety of waterslides, you can boost your adrenaline and heart rate at some of the park’s thrill rides. ¡Ándale!
