Grab your swimsuit, a cocktail and a good book -- you'll want to spend hours on the beach when you arrive in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Of course, there's more to this city than an expansive beach. Once you start feeling restless, get behind the wheel of your rental car and head for one of the area's top attractions.
Coastal Day Trips
The Licenciado Gustavo Diaz Ordaz International Airport (PVR) is conveniently located just three miles away from Puerto Vallarta's city center. Rental cars can be picked right at the airport, leaving you free to hop right into your car rental in Puerto Vallarta and explore the region's many lovely attractions. For the ultimate day trip, use your Puerto Vallarta car rental to drive to beautiful Nuevo Vallarta. Just half an hour from Puerto Vallarta, Nuevo Vallarta is home to an amazing beach and a huge casino. If you're enjoying a family vacation, have your kids climb in the back of a spacious van rental and drive them to one of Nuvo Vallarta's exciting water parks. For a more romantic outing, drive south along the coastline to Boca de Tomatlan, one of the area's top snorkeling destinations. After exploring the ocean from a different perspective, you and your travel companions can use the money you saved on airfare to Puerto Vallarta to order some fish tacos or bacon-wrapped shrimp at one of Boa de Tomatlan's amazing seafood restaurants.
