If you’re feeling more adventurous, take one our hand-held underwater sea scooters out for a bit of snorkeling and exploring the tide pools in front of the house. We’ve left you a variety of sizes of rock shoes to make your ocean swim more enjoyable, along with some boogie boards for your use. If you’re lucky you can watch one Puerto Vallarta’s famous dancing horses putting on a little show, visible from the palapa. Whale and bird watching from the palapa is a relaxing afternoon's pastime.
Close-to-home activities also include a masseuse service, available upon request, to treat you to a soothing massage in the privacy of your suite, out by the pool, or in the palapa while you relax to the sounds of the ocean waves.
