We've traveled in Mexico several times, but only to Puerto Vallarta once on a cruise. I have no idea where to stay, but I think we have narrowed it down to the Nuevo Vallarta area and these two hotels. We love Cancun, but much prefer Cozumel (so a town nearby but not a huge city). We love to go into the small towns and eat and wander. We are traveling with our 9 y/o who is well traveled at this point ;) We love to spend time in the ocean; kayaking, paddle boarding and our son surfs and body boards. He is our caboose and therefore a kids club and kid friendly is important as he likes to make new friends to play with. Are we picking the right area? We have noticed there is a cute town close by Bucerías, Nayarit and we will most likely do a day trip to Sayulita. We like the AI as it makes it easy and convenient when we are on property. We don't drink alcohol much, but a diet coke is nice and our son loves to be adventures with the virgin pina colada's etc..
The beaches look so nice in this area and easier to watch him in the ocean when we are not always in with him. What about nightly entertainment?
Thank you to all you experts.
