Puerto Vallarta tours with Toorzy? San Blas is a small port and fishing town about 100 miles (160 kilometers) north of Puerto Vallarta, a pleasant three to four-hour drive on a good road. Families can walk around the town square, visit a colonial church just across the street, and explore a fortress with a panoramic view of the town. It’s also a relatively cheap destination perfect for taking in the local culture, enjoying authentic meals, and learning the language of Mexico. Just outside the town of San Blas, kids can wade and swim in a large, shallow bay whose beach is popular with Mexican families on getaways from the Nayarit state capital of Tepic. It’s also one of Mexico’s best surf spots for beginners, and casual beach restaurants serve up fresh seafood to satisfy your hunger after a day on the water.
More Mexico destinations: In the heart of Cancun is Urbano Kabah Park, also known as the Kabah Ecological Park. This natural oasis is a popular spot for a stroll, a jog, or a picnic and consists of a two-kilometer long trail that cuts through a mix of tall palm trees and lush gardens. The park is particularly popular for families traveling with kids due to its playground and petting zoo. There’s plenty of wildlife to watch out for, too, including iguanas, the raccoon-like coatis, deer, a type of small wild pig called a peccary, and even the occasional spider monkey. It’s particularly good for birdwatchers, especially during migration season when species from as far as the US and Canada winter here. Other highlights include the Casa Maya Museum with its history of the development of the region.
Climb aboard for a thrilling speedboat ride over the brilliant waters of Banderas Bay, where a brand new view of the fantastic lush coastline will reveal itself to you. As exciting as this ride is, it culminates in a relaxing visit to the fishing village of Quimixto. Home to just 400 people, Quimixto is nestled by the La Puerta river mouth and is accessible only by a boat ride into the village. The lack of cars means life unfolds at a slower pace here, and you’ll have the opportunity to shop, look around, take photos and simply unwind before you continue your day of exploration. The relaxation continues as you mosey back to the seashore for an amazing snorkeling session in a secluded cove full of rock reefs and teeming with colorful sea life.
