Taking a much needed vacation to Puerto Vallarta in the spring! Where is the best beach to relax?
I usually travel north by bus to Bucerias or Sayulita for their beaches, however. Rent an umbrella and a chair, or bring your own and park yourself further north to avoid the crowds. One town up from Sayulita is San Pancho and its a smaller, quieter vibe.
Also another option is to head south a little, maybe like 5 miles south of town, use the Boca de Tomatlan/Mismaloya bus to get there, or take a taxi.
