Around Vallarta

Nuevo Vallarta is a newer part of the greater Vallarta region, set ten or fifteen minutes  north of the Airport.  The diversity of available activities in the area is unparalleled!


Easy access to everything from our facility!

The beach and pool are just outside your door.  Great Mexican restaurants are as close as a five minute walk. Five minutes in a taxi gets you to oodles of restaurants.  There is a taxi stand and a bus stop a few hundred feet from our property, so access is easy.  If you want to use our kitchen to do your own cooking, you'll find that grocery shopping is easy and located close by.  All of the other activities below all initiate from locations less than 1/2 hour away.  Some, such as the dolphin adventure, are just five minutes!


Golf to your heart's content!

Thousands of Olive Ridley turtles come to Puerto Vallarta every year between July and November to lay their eggs.  Vallarta Adventures has what they claim to be the largest turtle conservation camp on the bay - and they'll take you and a small group to watch for females laying eggs and babies in the process of hatching and returning to the bay.  Find more information about turtle camp on the Useful Links page.
