In my opinion, our family becomes stronger with each trip that we take. It is quality time that we spend together where everyone has left their work and school responsibilities at home and we can all just relax and enjoy our time together. While I love this quality time, I also want travel to be an opportunity for exploring and learning for my children. Learning can be fun, especially when it involves travel, and ecotourism is a perfect way to include both.

For those who enjoy ecotourism, Puerto Vallarta offers many one-of-a-kind landscapes. It is surrounded by the Sierra Madre mountain range, which offers the particular lushness of a tropical mountain. Puerto Vallarta has rivers that flow along the coastline of Banderas Bay; it is home to a wide variety of flora and fauna; you can even find a humpback whale sanctuary! The biodiversity here is absolutely amazing, just perfect to delve deep into nature and its wonders.

My family is extremely interested in learning about wildlife. We grab any opportunity to be a part of these incredible experiences. It sounds like Peurto Vallarta has no shortage of fun learning opportunities, and you can always hit the beach when you’re done! Join us at another fun #VisitPV Twitter Party where we can chat about this and other fun activities in Peurto Vallarta.
