Puerto Vallarta, indeed all of Mexico, is a great place for kids to visit. Children are practically revered in Mexico and you won't find a more tolerant and friendly environment for your little ones. There's plenty to keep kids busy too. If you're staying at a large resort, there's undoubtedly a Kids' Club where your youngster can take part in crafts and get to know other young travelers. Off the property, kids will delight in feeding giraffes at the Puerto Vallarta zoo (Zoologico de Vallarta) or snorkeling with sea turtles and tropical fish near Los Arcos. Speaking of Los Arcos, at the Los Arcos Amphitheater at the south end of the Malecon, you're likely to come across shows complete with jugglers and clowns in the early evenings. If you have a little seafarer on your hands, don't miss the pirate show on the realistic pirate ship, the Marigalante!
