The beaches are nice to walk but the water in Banderas Bay has lots of run off from the mountains and is warm but not very pretty!

Love the beach over here..... very clean, people are friendly. Great service at the restaurants! Not as much of people bugging you to buy things all day. You are able to enjoy your time at the beach. Pv's beaches are typically more rocky

Water in the hotel is brownish so the tours did make the difference... Vallarta Adventures has a very good crew and service..

The surf and sand are perfect! Love that it is in a bay so even when the waves are big, they are manageable and accessible.

The water temp was pleasant but not the blue waters of the Caribbean. A few days the waves were a little rough but never unmanageable.

It would have been nice if the water was clear, but it was delightfully warm with some fun little waves and no critters or seaweed.

beach is ok. The river spills into the ocean at the Gran Mayan so you get the brown/beige color not the pretty mint color.

We were there for 5 days (Riu resort). It rained every day while we were there. The green-ish/grey-ish water was very warm. The water was not clear. Lots of wood pieces, shells and trash washing ashore (it rained a lot the prior evening). The beach had a lot of debris here and there (again, only after the heavy rain), but... More

I actually liked seeing the vendors walking up and down the beach. I liked watching the paragliders. I loved that Mexican tourists came here bc it tells me it's a safe, desirable, well thought-of resort
