I'm going to be honeymooning in Puerto Vallarta in November. I'm looking for fun things to do there other than just hanging out on the beach. I'm not opposed to going to a beach, but I don't want just to lay in the sun and sand. Also, I'd love to find some truly AUTHENTIC Mexican food. I've been to PV before and eaten great food, but found it difficult to discover authentic Mexican cuisine. I'd love any suggestions. Thanks!

    Frida. A phenomenal gourmet Mexican restaurant located in the Grand Velas hotel in Riviera Nayarit (a quick cab ride just south of PV; hotel itself is worth seeing). Tableside guacamole, entrees, and Mexican coffee for dessert (tableside preparation so incredible you have to see it to believe it, so much fun, seemed like 100 steps- lots of fire, Kahlua, and other liquor)! Beautiful view of the water. The other restaurants I tried and loved were Cafe Des Artistes (French/International) and Vista Grill (International) up in the hills, looking out over the Bay, with a sunset view to die for. about 6 years ago

    I'll recomend you to escape a day to San pancho and sayulita, these are tow nice small towns with awesome beaches, great Mexican food, friendly prices and a more relax ambient. You can also rent a board ( really easy way to learn how to surf or ride in a SUP board).
