If it were to be ranked, then discovering the rainforest would be #1 of all top things to do in Puerto Vallarta. Just beyond Banderas Bay and the city, the Sierra Madre Mountains paint a scenic backdrop. Nestled this mountain range is a lush rainforest. It is home to valleys, rippling waterfalls, canyons, and an incredible variety of flora and fauna.
The dense canopy is also an adventure hotspot with activities like zip-lining, ATV rides, and jeep safari.
