The month of June marks the beginning of the summer months in Puerto Vallarta, and with it the beginning of the sea turtle season. Many varieties of sea turtles depend on Banderas Bay as a breeding ground and so in order to help with the preservation of those turtles, many hotels have started programs to protect the eggs by building nurseries. Adults and children are usually invited to participate in daily Turtle Liberation ceremonies, a fun way to celebrate the propagation of the species.

This beach is just north of the Playa de los Muertos and is just as popular. It is busy, but not as crowded as the beaches near the hotel row. Vendors are rare or non-existent, so you will need to bring your own equipment if you plan to snorkel or dive. The beach does have quite a large selection of restaurants, however. Many of the food entrees nearby include camarones (shrimp), in honor of the beaches' name. Locals like to hang out here as well as the tourists, so you will get a real feel of the local people.

La Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe is the heart of Puerto Vallarta religious life, and is the focal point of an elaborate 12-day festival each December. The structure itself was built during a 12-year period beginning in 1929. The interior is filled with hand-carved columns, decorative moldings and other rich detailing. An earthquake damaged the ornate crown that originally adorned the church. It was replaced, but the repair still creates controversy. The original crown is said to have been modeled after a tiara worn by the mistress of the Emperor Maximilian. Cathedral of Our Lady of Guadalupe is open on Sundays from 10am.
Bring your interest in a beautiful view and you won't be disappointed. When one pictures a beach, this is probably not the vision that comes to mind. Volcanic rocks are scattered about the area and a famous pair of arches have formed growing out from volcanic mass.

It has been a local favorite for more than 30 years.
