Last week I went to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico with one of my best friends. Since one of my birthday resolutions was to travel more, I feel like I am kicking off being 25 with quite the bang! A few years ago Jeremy and I went to Puerto Vallarta for the first time. We stayed outside of the heart of Puerto Vallarta in a smaller town called Bucerias. We loved it there and we so enjoyed our adventures into town which is why I was so excited when I spotted a great hotel + flight deal to Puerto Vallarta.
I haven’t gone on a girls trip for ages, and so I was so excited to head off for a few days with one of my closest friends. The entire week felt like a great excuse to do lots of face masks, make fools of ourselves at the water aerobics classes, and indulge in a few too many daiquiris.
Puerto Vallarta Travel Diary
Puerto Vallarta is simply gorgeous. The last I went it was quite stormy (which honestly, was beautiful too) but this time we were blessed with beautifully sunny weather. The clear skies made it so easy to explore the city and venture out of it. Walking the boardwalk was one of my favourite things we did during our stay, it was gorgeous and during the evening the waves crashing against the sea wall were unbelievable.
While we did quite a bit during our quick week stay, there was two things we did which really stick out in my mind as my true favourites. One day we went on a tour of San Sebastian which was an really interesting cultural and historical experience. We were able to wander the streets of the quaint town, shop the local shops, get unique sandals made just for us, and indulge in a authentic Mexican meal.
The second thing we decided to do was check out Sayulita, and I have to say – if you are going to Puerto Vallarta then be sure to put Sayulita on your “must visit” list. This beautiful bohemian town is a surfers paradise. Charming, beautiful, and vibrant are three words that I would use to describe the vibe of Sayulita. We spent the day walking from one end of the beach to the other, and hunkered down at a beachside restaurant to indulge in some local food and of course, coronas!
