What to do on Spring Break in Puerto Vallarta


In recent years, Puerto Vallarta has become Mexico's hottest destination for Spring Break vacationers.   Daytime activities and raging nightlife, Puerto Vallarta offers something for every Spring Breaker!


Puerto Vallarta's gathering hot spot is the famed, Malecon (boardwalk.)  During Spring Break, this long strip is packed with barely clad, fashionable college students from the US and Mexico City.  During the day, the malecon is a great place to take your beer for a stroll (any nightclub/bar will give you a to go cup), have a caricature made of yourself and friends, or shop in the many beach-ie clothing stores that line the way.

At night, guys dress casual to fashionable and the women wear anything from bikini tops to trendy club outfits.  Particularly the Mexican nationals- scantily clad, shimmery, and ready to party.  This is definitely the place to see and be seen!


During the day, the best beach is Los Muertos although any resort in the hotel zone will have it's own private stretch where margaritas and beers are served under umbrellas and sea activities are right in front of you;  parasail, kayak, jet ski, snorkel, scuba dive- you name it!


For those interested in adventure, take an ATV tour, canopy tour, or even a jungle tour.  Hop a bus and check out Boca de Tomatlan- a tranquil cove south of Puerto Vallarta where the beers are cheap and water taxis leave regularly to Yelapa, Los Animas and Las Caletas- surfing is popular at these points, and these secluded beaches are great for topless sunbathing.


Love Mexican food?  Or crave a good old fashioned hamburger?  While you can still have Dominoes delivered to your hotel room (although I say Tower Pizza here is better) there are endless options for dining.  Taco stands are everywhere- the best shrimp taco stands are in old town near Rizzo's grocery store, or you can head to historic Olas Altas street (think French Quarter equiv in New Orleans) for a choice between fine dining, traditional Mexican food, sushi, Chinese, or even Italian. 


Shopping-  your best bargains are usually on the beach, but hidden marketplaces offer souvenirs, clothing, and accessories.  The "flea market" is located next to the Rio Calle bridge; 2 levels of shopping with friendly, barely pushy salespeople.  For those daring enough to head inland, shop where the locals shop- Pitillal is a short bus ride inland and offers everything from fashions to souvenirs at local prices.  This is also the hot spot for buying pirated dvd's and video games- just be sure to have them played on site to make sure they work.


No matter what your interests, Spring Break in Puerto Vallarta will undoubtedly be your most memorable college getaway-  See you there!
