Some families dismiss Mexico merely as a destination for nameless beach resorts. But a vacation to Puerto Vallarta has skeptics singing a different tune. Not only are there spectacular beaches here (choose from rocky or sandy; they each have their own appeal), but there’s also an amazing array of kid-friendly activities. Whale-watching cruises off the coast are some of the best in the Pacific, as is the chance to snorkel with sea lions. Other nature excursions include horseback riding through waterfalls and zipline courses in the jungle. Calmer options include family walks along the boardwalk or indulging in freshly caught seafood lunches. You’re sure to want a kid-friendly resort for relaxation, and Puerto Vallarta offers several exclusive luxury properties to choose from, all of which cater to children in meaningful ways.
