    Hello. I am thinking about changing from Jamaica to Puerto Vallarta. After looking at different prices it seems that PV is a more affordable option for my guest. I was wondering what the water and the beaches are like at different resorts. I would like a resort that has alot of different activites. I like a good nightlife. Just wanting to know if anybody has some suggestions of a resort with really nice beach and water and a fun atmnosphere..

      If you want a resort with a great beach and near nightlife, I would suggest Dreams PV. The Nuevo Vallarta resorts are 30 minutes from the night life. Los Muertos beach is a really fun beach in-town. Also, check out Playa Fiesta if you are looking for a more intimate atmosphere. If you are strictly looking for a large resort, I'd go with Dreams PV.

        Information I have been given on the beaches in PV:
        -North - (Nuevo Vallarta) whiter sand, clearer water
        -Futher north out of the bay - good for surfing - on the Pacific rather than bay
        -Hotel zone - rocky beaches, water less clear due to the rivers and marina
        -South (Conchas Chinas to Mislamoya) - better sand (less small rocks/pebbles), clearer water
        -Further south - (Yelapa, Las Caletas) - whiter sand, much clearer water but still in the protected bay so swimable without the big waves of the north.

        We have been to the beachs in nuevo vallarta (pretty white sand but crowded and very far away from downtown PV), the hotel zone (very rocky sand and not that pretty), Conchas Chinas (very nice but smaller beaches), Garza Blanca (nicer sand), Mismaloya (even nicer but a little crowded), Yelapa (beautiful water). These are in order from North to South.

        PV is on the Pacific Ocean so it has dark blue water not the light turquoise waters of the caribbean. It is very beautiful though with the big rock formations at the water (especially south) and much more tropical in my opinion with the mountains and jungles meeting the sea.

        I have heard great things about the Dreams PV that is south of PV. The PV threads have some photos of those that scouted that hotel and got married there.

            Yup, I'm going to say Dreams PV as well...super close to downtown for the great nightlife and the beach is private - so awesome, with lots of water sports and activities.
