There's plenty to do here. You can snorkel, parasail, or just walk along the Malecon in PV. Drive south of Puerto Vallarta and see some amazing views. The water ( in June) was bathtub warm

Took a couple of catamaran trips in the bay, did snorkelling and saw plenty of fish, eels and dolphins.
The beaches are soft and the waters warm, also with mountain views of the sierra madre.
Lots of villages to visit along the bay, we went to yalopa and pizota plus bucerias and then puerto vallarta itself
Would go again!!

We rented a little sail boat on the beach in front of out hotel and went out sailing along the shoreline. The most incredible thing happened- dolphins started swimming along with us, keeping up with the boat and diving and surfacing right next to my dangling feet. It was truly an experience I will never forget. Get out on the water- it's beautiful!

The Bay of Banderas has great views. From the southern tip, which is virgin jungle with no roads to the resort area in the north of Punta Mita, it's a beautiful bay. The water quality is not perfect, both because of decreasing (but still present) risk of pollution, and because of river run-off that sometimes clouds the water. But there are plenty of activities and gentle breezes.

The Bay of Banderas is a gorgeous location! The view of the mountains from the beach is breathtaking! The water is warm and the waves are perfect!
