Best of Vallarta on Instagram – Summer Edition

Aug. 24, 2016

While summer vacation in the United States may extend until the beginning of September for some students, Mexico’s equivalent came to an end this past Sunday. Weeks of leisure, fun and relaxation at Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit beaches are now behind us, and, as the academic year starts and people return to their normal daily activities, thousands of amazing moments are being collected at the online galleries of Instagrammers who visited our destination.

Again, we took it upon ourselves to curate some of the best photos on Instagram captured during the past few weeks, showing how Banderas Bay is a great place to spend the season all year around.

Feel free to comment below which one is your favorite and/or attach your personal photos if you want to share your vacation with us!

  1. Horseback riding at the beach after a long day strolling around Puerto Vallarta’s El Centro neighborhood.

I love horseback riding at the beach, there’s nothing like going fast with the wind blowing in my hair and water splashing ??? Travel Tip: You always have room to bargain the price you’re told on the beach, be it a horse back riding session, a shirt or a coconut. Be nice and don’t have a kid next to you screaming they want to do it super badly. Show you’re interested only if it’s at a reasonable price otherwise you’ll sepnd well over an extra $100 for your horse. It always helps of you know how to speak their language too! • • • • • #exploremexico #puertovallarta #mexico #sunset #resort #vacaciones #holiday #familyvacation #viaje #viagem #voyage #traveltips #voyageuse #traveldiaries #auboutdumonde #relax #beach #praia #playa #plage #oceano #oceanview #oceanfront #instasky #clouds #horses #momentsinthesun #wild #traveltips #beachlife
