There are several restaurants around Puerto Vallarta where you can get a cheap meal. However, there is something about being able to walk up to any restaurant or bar in your resort and order a drink or get some food, knowing that it is included in your stay. This is what you get when you choose to stay at an all-inclusive resort. Although technically you don’t have to tip in addition to your prepaid rate, you should bring along some singles to tip your waiters. So look into one of the great all-inclusive hotels in Puerto Vallarta and relax knowing your costs are covered. 

Take Advantage of Hotel Amenities

Vacationers come from all around the world to enjoy the crystal clear waters of Puerto Vallarta. Although you can take an excursion out on a boat and visit one of the great private beaches, the waters, which are accessed in front of many hotels, is just as nice. Additionally, many hotels offer their guests use of kayaks, snorkel gear, and other non-motorized water sport amenities at no cost. So take advantage of the hotels amenities and go out and explore the water for free.

Whale Watching

Shore excursions are popular to both the cruise visitor and the regular hotel guest. However, they can be expensive. If you are looking for an excursion on a budget and you are visiting during the months of December through March look into whale watching. Whale watching is the most affordable excursion in Puerto Vallarta, especially if you book a tour outside of your hotel through a vendor such as Puerto Vallarta Tours by Johann and Sandra. Additionally when you book a tour with this vendor you will receive a discount card giving you multiple discounts around Puerto Vallarta.

Affordable Family Fun

In order to save money for your family to travel to Puerto Vallarta, you may have chosen a hotel that is smaller or less accessible to the ocean. This doesn’t mean that you and your family can’t enjoy some water fun. The Sea Life Park Entrance has ten water slides, a lazy river, children play areas, and swimming pools, all at a budget price. So don’t think that just because your hotel doesn’t have these types of amenities that your family can’t have fun, even when you are on a budget.
