If that’s not enough shopping for you, the Neptune’s Plaza shopping center is right next door and the Galleria mall is just up the road a ways. There are Spa services, child care services, yoga classes…there’s something for everyone.
When you get hungry, Marina Vallarta provides dining opportunities that will satisfy any eater’s tastes. With culinary offerings that feature both the authentic “south-of-the-border” spice of local fare as well as other International cuisines, including Italian, Indian and the ever popular Steak House. No matter your preference, you’re sure to find an enjoyable meal.
Fun On and In the Water
Banderas Bay is a veritable playground for those who love the ocean. If you are s sport fisherman, trips can be chartered from just about anywhere in the marina. These same boats can be charted for whale watching and dive trips. Don’t miss out on a day trip to the Marietas Islands, one of the few places in the world besides the Galapagos Islands where blue-footed boobies can be seen. For those with a few more days to spare, a trip to Yelapa would provide a rustic-yet-beautiful counter-point to the civilized luxury that the Marina provides. If this interests you, check out our Yelapa rentals at Casas Santa Cruz and El Jardin and we’d be happy to accommodate you.
