The Best Ways to Experience Breathtaking Sunsets in Puerto Vallarta
When you’re staying in Mexico in or near Puerto Vallarta, you are in for a treat when the evening rolls around. On the western coast, facing the Pacific Ocean you will be able to enjoy a stunning sunset at any time of the year. In fact, during most times of the year, a magical tableau is virtually guaranteed. Every night you’ll be able to look out at the horizon and see a new combination of gorgeous shades on nature’s painter’s pallet.
The region of Puerto Vallarta has an especially nice opportunity to see breathtaking sunsets due to the presence of so many beaches, its western facing direction and because the weather likes to play along at that time of the evening all year round.
While many people like to be able to simply relax and watch the sunset from the beach, as is the case when you’re staying at Villa Estrella, there are also some other ways for you to be able to enjoy this peaceful, overwhelmingly beautiful time of every day. Though you’re certain to want to see the view from Villa Estrella at least once during your stay, there are many other Nayarit points of interest to make that time special, as well.
For instance, could you think of anything with more romance and wonder than horseback riding along the beach while the suns lowly eases itself below the horizon, leaving its light show on the sky and reflected in the water? Or, if you’d rather head away from the beaches but still like the idea of riding horses, you can also do so while you wind your way along the mountains, into which Puerta Vallarta has nestled itself at the base. The views are perfect enough that your camera may capture the memory, but will never do justice to the splendor.
If you’d rather stay with your feet firmly planted on the ground, but are still seeking an exceptional experience at sunset, consider dining at any of a spectrum of different upscale restaurants along Puerto Vallarta’s shore. A bit of waterfront dining allows you to enjoy a feast for all your senses. As you delight in the unique flavors of the area, you’ll wonder at the beauty before you and breathe in the salty sea air that flutters your clothing over your skin. If you’ve ever wondered how you can access all your senses at the same time for something as equally simple and complex as a sunset, this is your opportunity.
For something a little more active, head to the Malecon, the lovely boardwalk in Puerto Vallarta. This is an extremely popular activity for visitors to the area and is one that shouldn’t be missed. You’ll be able to take in the splendor while you observe the unique street entertainment, pop into local shops and take in the local culture at its best.
While staying at Villa Estrella, you can easily take a trip to Puerto Vallarta by heading to the gate house to arrange for a professional and affordable driver to take you there and bring you back again once the last of the sun’s rays have disappeared for the night.
