Things to Do at Jalisco, Mexico Outdoor Sports

There is no shortage of things to do from your villa in Jalisco. Sports fishing, boat trips, rock climbing and mountain biking are popular activities, and there is excellent hiking in the mountains.


Puerta Vallarta is known for its extensive golden sands and gentle waves. The main beaches are Shrimp Beach, High Waves Beach (although they are not!) and the Beach of the Dead. They are perfect for walking and sunbathing, eating at one of the bars along the beach or enjoying some of the local watersports such as windsurfing. The Mouth of Tomatoes Beach is more rocky and does have crocodiles, so it is not so well frequented.

See a Rodeo

Rodeos, or charros as they are known, include a host of challenges and entertainment such as calf-roping, riding unbroken steers and other riding events by local cowboys. It is an exciting family attraction and the prize-money is keenly contended.
