Garza Blanca Waterfall

Garza Blanca Preserve is close to the downtown area of Puerto Vallarta and the scenery within is so tranquil and beautiful that you’ll never want to leave. For many people the luxury resort and Spa is the main attraction of the Preserve, but for all you land lovers will be more enamoured with the stunning river and waterfall that can be found here. The romantic atmosphere might leave you feeling a bit amorous, though, so make sure you’ve got a mirror to check your makeup! Garza Blanca Waterfall is seasonal, usually from around July through December and is only available to guests at the hotel.

Quimixto is a sleepy fishing village on the south shore of Puerto Vallarta famed for its lovely waterfall. There are a number of organized tours that leave from Puerto Vallarta to reach this waterfall. You can get there by walking roughly 40 minutes or by horseback.

If you’re up for a longer journey to reach two great waterfalls, you can head to Yelapa, the southernmost town on the shores of the Bay of Banderas, where there are two truly phenomenal waterfalls to enjoy. The first is just behind the 500 person town, and is great for anyone who wants a good view of Yelapa. The 150 foot path that leads down to the base of the waterfall is scenic and gently sloped, and at the bottom there’s a lovely pool to take a dip in. What’s more you can have a bite to eat in the restaurant at the waterfall’s base to make sure that you really make the most of the scenery.

If you’re really looking for a more private experience, however, you should take a hike into the jungles around Yelapa. This will offer you a uniquely romantic experience to those who take the time to get to the waterfall. On your way you’ll hear the river and Parrot song; a mix that is both heady and unforgettable. But once you get there, believe us, that’s the best part. Lazing on the banks, splashing in the cool waters, even just sitting side by side while the water crashes down in front of you. Hiking to the waterfalls of Yelapa will help you to form memories that will last a lifetime.

Exploring the waterfalls in Puerto Vallarta will certainly be one of the highlights of your trip.
