Puerto Vallarta Perfection!
by tabblack
Perhaps our family's favorite Mexican vacation of all time! We stayed a week at the Vallarta Palace and loved every minute. The food was excellent at all of the restuarants but our favorite was to have dinner at the Japanese restaurant. When ... more we weren't entertaining ourselves in the pools we enjoyed hours of boogie boarding in the surf. We went on a sunset sailing cruise the first evening, rented jet skis for an hour one day to explore Banderas Bay, and the kids went parasailing another.

But the most fun was the adventure trip that we took. It started with a speed boat trip across the bay to a small fishing village where we boarded trucks that took us through the jungle into the mountains where we received instruction in ziplining and rapelling. Then we rode donkeys further up the mountain to begin our journey back down to the base. I can't decide if the best part was rapelling beside the waterfall or ziplining into the stream! Our guides were great at insuring our safety and making the trip fun. The trip finished with a truck ride back to the village and taking the speed boat back to the resort. What a wonderful day! Our entire trip was a great mix of activity and relaxation in a wonderful tropical setting. We also played tennis and spent an afternoon at a small market to the north of the resort. And the sunsets were fabulous! I highly recommend Puerto Vallarta and the Vallarta Palace resort.
