The Perfect Destination – Puerto Vallarta

Zip lining, art, sparkling seas, mountains, tequila. Puerto Vallarta has it all and is one of our favorite destinations in Mexico & the Caribbean. Nestled on the Pacific Coast of Mexico between the Sierra Madre mountain range and Banderas Bay, Puerto Vallarta has no shortage of activities that are only possible because of its superb location.

Enjoy the services and amenities of Unlimited-Luxury® at Dreams Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa and Dreams Villamagna Nuevo Vallarta. Walk along the iconic El Malecon boardwalk and admire the art sculptures in the morning, savor lunch overlooking the ocean at Seaside Grill, lie out on the golden sand or by our spectacular pools during the afternoon, treat yourself at dinner and enjoy the special nightly activities and performances the entertainment teams have planned. The next day, try something different. Fly through the forest and mountains on zip lines, golf at championship golf courses located nearby, release newly hatched turtles into the ocean and much more.

Puerto Vallarta is a wonderful destination all year round. And with all the activities the city, Dreams Puerto Vallarta and Dreams Villamagna have to offer, it’s the perfect escape for any age.

First-Hand Encounter of Swimming with Whale Sharks

The season of snorkeling with whale sharks is here and we are excited to share a recent first-hand experience with you! Guests of Dreams Cancun Resort and Spa just have a short walk to the beach to Solo Buceo dive center located on the property. After an hour boat ride offshore where the gentle giants hang out snorkelers dive in and swim with the whale sharks! This is a once in a lifetime experience that you don’t want to miss.

Read about how Gringation’s blogger Laura Winfree and her husband Jorge enjoyed the excursion with Nadia, Dreams Cancun’s e-concierge:

 “When Jorge, my friend Nadia and I decided to swim with whale sharks this weekend, I was so excited but mostly nervous! I’d never snorkeled in more than 10 feet of water before, much less in the middle of the ocean with no land in sight. Or swimming alongside a 30-foot fish.

At 7 am Sunday morning, we made our way to the Solo Buceo dive center located at the beautiful Dreams Cancun Resort and Spa in the Hotel Zone. Our early-morning boat ride was much bumpier than I’d anticipated, and I realized it was my first time being so far away from shore! It was a scary but fascinating feeling.”   

Check out the photos below taken by Laura and read more about their day on her blog post.

Gringation’s Whale Shark Tour Tips:

  1. Put on sunscreen before you leave the house, or bring bio sunscreen. I was too lazy to put sunscreen on before leaving the house, and our guide told us that once you’re on the boat, it’s bio sunscreen only. And today I’m paying the price. So much sunburn. Ow.
  2. Bring an underwater camera. In a way I was glad I didn’t have one because it was one less thing to worry about while I was swimming, but trust me, you’ll want those underwater photos.
  3. The boat ride is bumpy and uncomfortable (but worth it), so I wouldn’t recommend this tour unless you’re in decent physical condition.
  4. Sunglasses!
  5. Dramamine!
