Itinerary
Click for Dates and Prices Day 1 Arrive Puerto Vallarta
Welcome to Puerto Vallarta, one of Mexico's most popular beach destinations. Today, meet up with your group & get ready for a day of exploring the golden sands or famous seaside malecon (promenade) lined with bars, restaurants & shops.

Day 2 Puerto Vallarta
Today you’re free as a bird and that means exploring as much or as little of Puerto Vallarta as you like. Punta Mita is known for perfect beginner waves if surfing in a secluded bay is your thing, if not, then there are plenty of other activities on offer, including a ride on a pirate ship cruise compete with an acrobatic performance and fireworks. Sign us up! What else? Today you could find yourself speeding through the jungle on a zipline, or getting spending the day away at the beachside town of Sayulita. And for those keen to kick it right in downtown Puerto Vallarta, then head to some beachside watering holes for drinks, giant lobster feasting, swims and people watching. One, two or a combo of all are well and truly acceptable.

Day 3 Puerto Vallarta to Guadalajara
Today we head to the city the locals call the "Pearl of the West", Guadalajara! Take a closer look at buildings & plazas filled with great murals & history. Stroll through the charming streets of the historic centre where you'll visit the four main squares, inside city hall & the magnificent cathedral.
