Puerto Vallarta prides itself on sandy beaches and abundant sunshine, and while sunbathing is certainly a popular way to spend a vacation, outdoor adventures await visitors willing to pull themselves from the lounge chair. Here are your options.

Water Experiences
Situated on the Pacific Coast of Mexico, it's no surprise that Puerto Vallarta excels at aquatic adventures. Visitors can swim and snorkel in the Marietas Islands, go sailing on Banderas Bay, take surf lessons in nearby Sayulita and Punta Mita, look for humpback whales and dolphins, or strap on a Flyboard and play Iron Man.

Land Adventures
Some of Puerto Vallarta's best adventures take place on solid ground. Outdoor adventures might take the form of rappelling down a waterfall, riding a 4x4 off-road through the Sierra Madre, ziplining through the canopy, driving a utility terrain vehicle (UTV) from Punto Mita to Sayulita, horseback riding on the beach, or cruising along jungle trails on an ATV.

Sky-High Activities
Visitors looking for a high-flying thrill can bungee jump into the ocean, rappel from jungle platforms, tour the jungle canopy on a wobbly walkway, or soar at speeds of up to 60 miles per hour along Mexico's largest zipline.
