Recommendations for family vacation in Puerto Vallarta or other ideas???

Jump to last reply

We are planning a vacation for February 2018 for our family of four. We have two children who will be 5 and 7 at the time of travel. I have received great advice on this forum in the past. You all have guided us to Soliman Bay Mexico two years in a row and we loved it. We are ready for different scenery though and want to avoid that unpredictable, nasty sargassum. We are considering exploring the Pacific side of Mexico. Possibly flying into Puerto Vallarta and renting a condo or beach house as we want to have a kitchen. We could stay for up to two weeks and will rent a car. We are good with a destination within a 2 hour drive of the airport. We are open to other location ideas and have considered Belize, Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic. We are drawn to Puerto Vallarta as it is a relatively quick and affordable flight from Washington state. We love beautiful beaches and are aware that the Pacific side is not going to be as picturesque in that regard. However, the jungle scenery and sunsets will be a nice trade. We do not like crowded beaches. Any ideas for nice, safe, relatively quiet beaches where we can rent a beach house or condo? We could even split our time into 7 days at two different locations. We do not want large surf as our children are young and safety is a concern. We love day trips to check out other beaches and adventure (zipline, hike, etc.). Thanks in advance for any thought or ideas you can throw our way.
