Live an excellent beach vacation when you visit Puerto Vallarta or Riviera Nayarit. Enjoy the best things to do surrounded by the Banderas Bay which is the 7th largest bay in the world and the largest bay in Mexico. You have miles and miles of ocean you can explore along with many fun activities. Keep reading below to learn the top activities you can enjoy if you live by the ocean.

Top Things to do on the Beach:


To start with, swimming is a fun activity that people of all ages and fitness levels can enjoy when you live by the ocean. For example, you can start your day with a refreshing morning swim or end your day with a relaxing dip at sunset. Swimming is a great workout that will improve your breathing, and swimming uses your body’s muscles without putting weight on your joints. This is great for those who have knee, feet, and hip issues.


Next, a new sport and more demanding water activity is kiteboarding. Kiteboarding uses the wind to pull your kite across the water. It is a challenging sport and activity that uses combinations of wakeboarding, snowboarding, skateboarding, surfing, and paragliding. The best place in Banderas Bay to go kitesurfing is in Bucerias, which is a coastal town. There are natural wind currents from March through June. In general, new kiters need to take at least 10 lessons with an instructor, before they are able to go out and kite on their own.

Scuba Diving

Thirdly, scuba diving in the ocean is an adventure that is always thrilling and visually stimulating. If you are a beginner, make sure you take lessons with an instructor that is certified. El Morro is the best place to scuba dive in Banderas Bay. However, you need to be an advanced diver to dive there and you will be able to explore numerous caves and tunnels. In addition, scuba divers may also get to see manta rays, sea turtles, and many beautiful and colorful fish. During the winter months, you may get to see the humpback whales too.


Next, paddleboarding is an activity that can be either a relaxing and peaceful experience, or a good work out. Plus, it’s an activity that people of all ages can enjoy. You will get a complete body workout that will also improve your balance, too. Punta de Mita is the best area to go paddleboarding in the Banderas Bay, and it is located only 45 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta and about 30 minutes from Villa La Estancia in Riviera Nayarit.

These activities are a great way to stay fit during your beach vacation, and it also benefits your mental health, too. Plus, there are so many fun activities to enjoy, things to see, and interesting places to visit.
