Play on the Bay

What’s your pleasure?  Here on the Bay of Banderas and the entire Puerto Vallarta area, play is what we do all day and all night.  If you’re a golfer, the Bay has 7 extraordinary courses that are well above par, designed by world-renowned pros from Jack Nicklaus’s Pacific Golf Course in Punta Mita to those designed by Tom Weiskopf and Robert von Hagge.

If golf’s not you game, there are a million other pleasures. Roll the dice at one of our casinos, ride the air currents on a parasail, capture the wind on a surf kite, hike the jungle to storybook waterfall, kayak, paddle-board, surf, swim, scuba, sail, snorkel. Zip line the forest canopy, take a water taxi to an exotic beach, catch a fishing boat and hook a Marlin. Watch the whales breach and the dolphins play. The one thing you won’t see here are cloudy days and faces without a smile.

At night, the Malecon is throbbing, the dance clubs are swinging, music fills the air along with laughter. If you’re a gourmet you can chew your way along the Bay from one tip to the other from famous chefs. But leave room for the best tacos you’ve ever tasted. And once you’re played out, we’ve got some of the best beaches in the world to chill out on, with swaying palms, and hand-make hammocks and snow white sand as soft as powder.


Best of all, all 50+ miles of the Bay are home to the sweetest, friendliest people you will ever meet who all have one goal. Making you happy. So pick yourself up and come on down to play. And if you don’t want to ever leave, as so many of us feel, we know the best realtors to help you stay.
