Off-roading to love
Puerto Vallarta attracts travelers who appreciate the ocean just as much as the outdoors. Dive headfirst into your journey with a trek to Canopy River for some Polaris RZR riding. Make your personal philosophy of choosing the road less taken a bit more literal as you and your date ride through the mountainous jungle. You’ll end at a waterfall where you can take a leap of faith together, cementing your relationship’s trust levels even more.
To keep the adventurer in you going, conquer all your fears at Los Veranos Canopy Tour, where you can choose from 15 different zipline options. The tallest one is over 600 feet high and the longest spans over 1,500 feet. After a date like this, you’ll be able to zip through any troubles that come your way as a couple.
Turn up the heat
You two can handle the heights, but what about the heat? Wander through downtown Puerto Vallarta hand in hand and cool down with a spicy margarita at River Café. The drink can pack a punch, but so can many types of peppers native to Mexico, such including serrano, arbol, and habanero varieties. If you’re up for it, live like a “Paradise” double date and challenge your partner to a pepper-eating contest. This is the only time on the trip you’ll want to see your date cry!
Once your taste buds come back to life, reward yourselves with some refreshing ice cream. In case you really need to make it up to your partner, book a night at Villa De Leon for a romantic dinner just the two of you.
Embrace indigenous traditions by taking a trip to a temazcal, an ancient version of a steam room. These sweat lodges originally functioned as a way to cleanse people before going to battle and also served as a place to give birth. Now, you and your date can partake in a temazcal ceremony, which involves pouring water over hot rocks to elicit steam. Be prepared to sweat — a lot!
Your bodies may cool down afterwards, but your relationship will stay hot long after you leave this paradise!
With the ocean breeze at your back and a tropical cocktail in hand, there’s no better place to write your love story than in the sand in Puerto Vallarta.
