“Just like a small village.”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

Such a cheap, intimate and great place to be. It felt like these places from Italian little villages in which people just gather and have a great evening: large tables and nice conversations.

“the bay of banderas”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

The Bay of Banderas has much to offer. You can do almost anything you would ever want to in Puerto Vallarta and in the Bay of Banderas. The weather there is perfect.

“Walk your way to a tan”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

This is the second largest bay in North America the first I believe is Hudson's Bay Canada. Because it is owned by the federal government it is not private and you can walk forever either way scenic views and the sound of crashing ways is an affordable escape from life. wear sunscreen because after a good long walk you will definately bronze up nicely. If you head North depends where your staying you end up in a little fishing village called Bucerias. Go for brunch or breakfast at Karens there really good and affordable. The beach is patrolled so you feel very safe fun to watch dolphins in the distance. I enjoyed swimming here was great

“Beautiful Bay. Incredible views. Lots of wildlife”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

Amazing views and warm water. Lacks the Clarity of the Caribbean but nice non the less. Calm water, Dolphins and turtles. Diving conditions not satisfactory but dont know if it was just a bad day or not.

“One of the largest bays”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

This is the second largest bay in North America, second only to Hudson Bay. Beach goes on forever and easy to walk miles passed the hotels and resorts. Lots of water sports all along the Bay and jetties to walk on for a view of the bay. Also a manmade canal with mangroves and lots of wildlife. Great place to spend the day.
