It’s a funny place to stop on the boat because you pull up to an industrialized bay that shows a Wal-mart and a shopping mall with nearly all American chain stores. It’s not exactley that different from the U.S. at first glance. However, when one leaves the port and heads to the mountains on the other side of the area, there are beautiful jungles, seaside mansions (owned by many celebrites), and a beautiful animals and scenary.
We took a decent drive through Old Town and went into the jungle to go ziplining. We’re pretty big adventure seekers, so this fit the bill for both of us! Our friends Jake and Karen are the same, they were perfect traveling buddies!
Tips for Ziplining Deals
If you go on a cruise I would think twice before booking excursions through them. Sometimes it’s necessary because if the boat is leaving and you aren’t back they will leave you. However, if you have two days in one place like we did, there were no worries on timing for us.
Jacob is a crafty one, always finding the best deal on everything. That boy always does his homework with bargain shopping- I thought I was good, then I got married! He was able to book 2 for $60 (versus $144 a person through our cruise line) through a great company we totally recommend. The people were so funny, knowledgeable, and encouraging. We’d totally book through them again.
Zip-lining in Puerta Vallarta Mexico
Ziplining takes some hiking, wearing a harness, and enjoyng the ride!
The scenary really was beautiful, clearly one us couldn’t take our eyes off the view (um the one with the long, dark, ponytail that is)
And we had a 9-year-old, and a 91-year-old come along. The 91-year-old (a month shy of 92) was such an inspiration! We asked her secret, she told us “Don’t listen to Doctors!” Everyone cheered for her when we finished. We were lucky enough to snag a picture with her.
The experience was one of a kind, and something we’d defnitely recommend doing!
