All types of families are welcome in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. On the Malecon boardwalk downtown, our path forged a wake of smiles, the wide ocean on one side and open arms of the sky above. We saw elderly couples walking hand in hand, two millennial girls hugging, a brother and sister posing for a photo in front of one of the 10 statues electrifying the walkway. We felt anyone could come and be what they wanted, be who they are and no one would do anything but be happy they came to visit.

A Mexican restaurant in any American state often includes all the iconic décor symbolizing the country’s culture, from sombreros and mariachi music to tequila-soaked margaritas and pictures of charros bull riding on the walls. What you may not know, though, is that nearly everything you see originated in Jalisco, Mexico.
Hiking the Jorullo Bridge and Sierra Madre Occidental in Puerto Vallarta may not be the most popular tour for visitors, but it should be, especially your adventurous families looking for some rugged jungle expedition. The epic views of thick mountain foliage, challenging climbs and rewarding waterfall swims are a picture of quintessential Mexican adventure tourism.
