Puerto Vallarta, is an amazing place that allows you to dive right into the local culture without having to go very far outside of the city.
I actually had the pleasure of living in Puerto Vallarta so it has allowed me to get to see many of the unique places that only Vallarta has to offer. I in turn am giving you the local secrets that the one time traveler to Vallarta would have great difficulty stumbling upon.
I see that a lot of people have concentrated on the touristy stuff, so I have decided to dedicate myself to the out-of-the-way/bizarre things that I know a true adventure traveler will enjoy.
I will highly suggest the following:
-Go to El Tuito
My travelogue is a guide to a days adventure in the quaint little village
This tourist trap makes me physically ill when thinking about it. Anyone with half a brain will realize that going to Yelapa is like traveling to another hotel only to get wasted. The journey is fun, but the place is awful. If you are going to go there I suggest you go for the real adventure… drive there.
Yelapa is cool because of two things.
1 you have to pay in order to go there
2 it is crawling with drug addicts. Don’t believe me; go there I will bet you within 5 feet of getting off of your boat you get hassled by someone with a time-share type personality trying to sell you weed.
- Pros:tons of culture and activities
- Cons:drunk gringo's
- In a nutshell:Although touristy, you can still dive into the local culture
Have you ever been to Mexico and really REALLY watched what you ate and drank, yet still got sick??? Well, it might not... more travel advice
Has the thought of living in PV or any other part of the world ever cross your mind? It did mine but the second question... more travel advice
