Los Muertos Beach
Don’t let the name (translated as “the dead) scare you: this is one of Puerto Vallarta’s most popular and lively beaches. It is lined with restaurants, hotels, and bars, food stalls, water sports vendors, and a very iconic pier resembling a sailing boat. Sunsets from Los Muertos beach are an experience you cannot miss.
Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe
This colonial-era cathedral is a landmark on the Puerto Vallarta skyline. History buffs in your wedding party will love to take a tour and explore the grounds, taking in the colonial flair and architecture.
Off the coast you’ll spot these iconic rock formations. The perfect way to admire these natural beauties is onboard a private yacht with your whole family or maybe just your fun group of bridesmaids. You can explore Los Arcos’ tunnels paddleboarding, but it is also a great place to go scuba diving or snorkeling to see hundreds of tropical fish in their natural environment.
Puerto Vallarta is a great destination for golfing—and golfing is a fun way for your friends and family to spend time together and catch up. There are a number of top quality golf courses in the area, including the Marina Vallarta Golf Course, the only one immersed in the city, but also with some holes close to the beach, the Vista Vallarta Course, which features a fun jungle location, and Litibu Golf Club, another course with a jungle layout that offers a good value in green fees.
In lieu of a formal rehearsal dinner, watch the sunset over the Bay of Banderas in a private chartered sailboat with your wedding party. You’ll have the opportunity to enjoy drinks together and share old memories while creating new ones.
Pay homage to your destination wedding’s hometown by giving back to the local community. You can do this by asking guests for donations to contribute to a local school or reforestation efforts, or you can volunteer at local children’s shelters.
