Riu Vallarta Hotel
Set right on Playa de Flamingos Beach, the Riu Vallarta is a hotel with lots to offer. The focal point of this attractive property is the large swimming pool which has sunken loungers, two slides and a surrounding terrace decked out with loungers and parasols. When you’ve worked up a thirst, the swim up bar is on hand for an ice cold drink. Take your pick from four restaurants including buffet and gourmet dining options. For relaxation, head to the tempting The Renova Spa. Kids are catered for with RiuLand Kids’ Club offering fun activities for children, and grown-ups can put on their party shoes and head to Pacha nightclub which is onsite.
Overview of Mexico, Pacific Coast
Those looking for a beach break with a little extra dazzle should turn their attention to Mexico’s Pacific Coast. Offering holidays to Mexico with a twist, this idyllic spot gives you the opportunity to laze on very photographic beaches, check out the dazzling nightlife and get your adrenaline pumping with the chance to zip line in the Sierra Madre Mountains. Stay in Nuevo Vallarta, where the Rui Vallarta Hotel is based, and you’ll be well placed to enjoy this stretch of coastline. If you’re after lazy beach days with a dash of action and adventure, then a week or two on Mexico’s Pacific coast will really hit the spot.
Things to do in Nuevo Vallarta
Stay at the Riu Vallarta Hotel and you’ll be just 2.4 kilometres from the attractions of Nuevo Vallarta. This up-market resort rubs shoulders with Puerto Vallarta but has a distinctly different vibe. It’s definitely the place for rest and relaxation with restaurants, tennis clubs and a waterpark for lazy lunches and leisurely sporting pursuits. There are also three golf courses available if that’s your bag. For a day out with a difference, time spent at the distilleries in the foothills of the Sierra Madre Mountains is an interesting way to spend an afternoon. For a change of scene, livelier Puerto Vallarta is just 20 kilometres away.
