Rincón de Guayabitos: The Quiet Side of Paradise article by Nick Gallo from the Sunday Vancouver Sun
North of Puerto Vallarta, a strand of sparkling beach towns — Bucerias, Sayulita, San Pedro — dot the Pacific coast. But the nicest mix of beach-idyll elements — stunning sand, cheap prices, don’t-worry-be-happy attitude — is a little farther north in Guayabitos, nestled on the small Bay of Jaltemba, about an hour north of Puerto Vallarta airport. Shielded from the Pacific, Guayabitos is blessed with a sweet bay — gentle but zippy enough for boogie boards — and a two-kilometer stretch of blissful sand.
The long, lovely beach hosts a few, new hotels (nothing more than four story’s high) and vacation-recreation bustle (para-sailing, banana boat rides), but Guayabitos still moves at a slow, uncomplicated pace. Vendors bring you freshly grilled fish on a stick. Kids romp in the surf. Tourists from Guadalajara fill the air with Spanish. Neighboring La Peñita, a congenial, working-class town, adds markets, bakeries and another slice of Mexican life.
What to do: Wiggle your toes in the sand. When you’ve stopped pondering the truly important questions in life — are the best margaritas blended or on the rocks? — then consider snorkeling (Isla Islote), whale watching (December to March) or … searching for another beach. More than a half-dozen empty, unspoiled beaches lie within a 15-minute drive of Guayabitos.
Don’t miss: La Tobara. It requires a two-hour drive to San Blas, but the payoff is this natural freshwater spring, reached via a boat trip through jungle and mangrove canals. The area teems with birds, iguanas and turtles.
Where to stay: Of several new hotels on the beach, the most charming is the gleaming-white Villas Buena Vida, which has 45 airy, oceanfront rooms with cooking facilities — most less than $100 per night — a small pool and a cheerful atmosphere.
How to get there: First-class buses run from Vallarta’s bus terminal near the airport to La Peñita, where you can grab a taxi to Guayabitos.
