Dreaming of long sunny Mexican days and pristine white sandy beaches? Then you should head to Vallarta, located on the Pacific Coast. Puerto Vallarta is a central town close to the Vallarta airport with beaches, activities, authentic Mexican food, and a friendly vibe (voted the friendliest city in Mexico by Travel and Leisure). About 30 minutes away from Puerto Vallarta is Nuevo Vallarta, where Villa del Palmar Flamingos is located. Both towns are beautiful, boasting stunning views of the Banderas Bay. Puerto Vallarta is the center of Mexican culture (shops, restaurants, museums, bars, nightlife, and more) whereas Nuevo Vallarta is a quieter town with beach activities, restaurants, shopping, and more. They are both packed with some of the best summer activities you can dream of during the perfect Mexican holiday!
If you are planning a trip with your little ones, why not immerse yourself into the tranquility of Nuevo Vallarta! If you are visiting between July and December, make sure to join one of the special tours of releasing baby turtles into the ocean. If you are looking for a day filled with fun and smiles, then stop by the Aquaventuras Park, which not only has numerous fun slides and water rides, but it is also home to the Dolphin Center, where you can book an encounter with these remarkable animals and even swim with them!
Puerto Vallarta will grab your attention with its unique tropical vibe and vibrant atmosphere. Take a stroll down the one-mile-long Puerto Vallarta Pier and get introduced to the artistic and creative feel of the area. Do not miss having some fun at Playa Los Muertos. From just relaxing and sunbathing to trying various water sports, such as windsurfing, the beach is a must-visit while in Vallarta. Your trip will be incomplete, if you do not stop by the impressive Cathedral of Our Lady of Guadalupe, which dates to the 1940s and is in the center of town near the Malecon. When you are done with your day of exploring and having fun, go back to your comfortable and luxurious room at one of our accommodation options – Villa del Palmar Puerto Vallarta and Villa del Palmar Flamingos!
Widely known as a place where you can spend your entire day trying various water sport activities, Cabo is the perfect choice for the adventure seekers, who are looking forward to not only relaxing and sunbathing on the beach, but also to be active and seek the adrenaline rush! If this describes you, you should choose Cabo for your next holiday destination and enjoy the ultimate summer activities there.
Start your day with a scuba diving lesson at Cabo Pulma National Park, which is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the crystal clear waters of the protected area, you will find colorful reef corals, as well as tropical marine wildlife, including sea turtles and sea lions. If you are visiting between December and April, follow the day with a whale watching tour and get a glimpse of these magnificent creatures. To finish off the day, book a once-in-a-lifetime experience and get to ride a camel in the desert. Yes, this is correct! Right next to the pristine sandy beaches of Cabo, you will find massive unspoiled sand dunes. There is nothing better than greeting the sunset from the back of a camel.
Once you are done with your day tour, you might want to treat yourself to a short trip to the secluded paradise of Bahia Santa Maria. The feeling of dipping your toes into the powdery golden sand and admiring the stunning scenery of the horseshoe shaped beach, is something you will remember long after you have gone back home. Do not forget that once you are done with all the exploring your suite at Villa del Palmar Cabo or Villa del Arco will be waiting for you!
As Mexico’s hidden gem, the Islands of Loreto are the perfect location for anyone who is dreaming of a remote secluded and romantic holiday destination. With just a handful of tourists, if you decide to plan a trip to the Islands of Loreto, you will be rewarded with the unique opportunity to fully relax and unwind, as you are admiring the tranquility of the endless miles of pristine sandy beaches and clear turquoise waters.
You might be wondering if there is anything else except sunbathing and relaxing. The answer is yes!

If you are looking for a place where you can have fun both days and nights, then you should start parking for the ultimate Cancun holiday. Located along the Yucatán Peninsula, Cancun will guarantee you long sunny days and its refreshingly turquoise waters are perfect for swimming in the Caribbean Sea.
While exploring the nightlife of Cancun is among the best summer activities in the area, visitors should not miss taking a step back in time and learning more about the fascinating ancient Mayan civilization. You can easily do this by taking day trips to Tulum or the Chichen Itza Ruins. Before you head back home, though, do not forget to take a dip into the totally unique Mexican cenotes. Surrounded by steep cliffs, yet home to clear waters, these massive underground pools are perfect for snorkeling, swimming or just relaxing by. The best thing is that our luxurious Villa del Palmar Cancun resort will welcome you at the end of your busy days and will help you find the relaxation you are looking for.
