Location: The world if I could but for now I settle for the west coast.
Also there is Vallarta Adventures that you can book any tour through. DH and I went for our honeymoon for 2 weeks. We loved eating in the local restaurants, but beware which ones you eat in. Buy a travel book that gives specific information about the restaurants there, that way you know where you are eating is safe for the family.
Also, not through Vallarta Adventures but awesome tours is the zip lines and taking an evening dinner cruise on a Pirate ship named the Mirigalante. (sp?) Some brothers bought an old ship and restored it to full glory. It was a beautiful ship that sailed the bay while they put on a show and then fed us a good dinner.
Hope this works out well for you and your family.
PS another idea is to take one suitcase full of food that you know your family will eat that you are not sure you will find down there such as certain junk foods that they love to eat...then when you are ready to go home the empty suitcase has now become your souvenir suitcase.
Vallarta has something for everyone. It is a tourist town but it is easy to get off the beaten path. You want a Miami like atmosphere it is there. You want real Mexican culture, it is there as well. Do your research.
