leading up to Easter is also crowded with local travelers taking advantage of their school and work holidays. It's often busy here year-round, but the slowest season remains in late summer and early fall, between Mexican and foreign holidays, which are also the rainiest months. You'll find a shoulder season in between these times of the year, mostly late spring after the Easter vacationers leave and early summer, as well as late September through November.
Some of the activities here are seasonal. Whale watching is a tremendous draw for visitors around the world and coincides mostly with the busy season from November through April. If you are looking for underwater adventures, the winter months also bring in the most migratory sharks and other animals, but there are sights worth seeing year-round.
Nuevo Vallarta's popularity around the world is one reason why you'll find many of the world's top delicacies at its restaurants when you come to visit your Nuevo Vallarta timeshare. If you are looking for great dining and nightlife you'll find it here. After dark, the city comes alive from its rooftops to its beaches. Many restaurants also offer shows, drinks, and live entertainment after dark until the early hours of the morning, especially during the busy season. The atmosphere tends to quiet down along the stretches of the Coastalegre, where you are more likely to find quiet stargazing along the beaches and balconies of the resort than a party.
The beaches and water sports of Nuevo Vallarta provide the perfect daytime activities for both adults and families with young children. This is the perfect place to learn about surfing especially in the winter months when the waves are considered challenging yet doable for beginners on many beaches or more challenging on others for more experienced surfers. You can find any number of excursions during the high season for fishing, parasailing, cruises, and other water activities for the whole family.
If you want to stay on dry land, the eastern side of the city is equally enthralling. The winter months are ideal for hiking through the lush jungles surrounding Nuevo Vallarta, including the State Biosphere Reserve adjoining the city, where native wildlife like jaguar, turtles, and huge mangrove trees still live near human civilization. Flocks of colorful birds migrate here every winter, turning the forests alive with birdsong and bright feathers.
Back in town, you'll find that the city has many opportunities for shopping, dining, and even some of the finest golf courses in the region. Golf courses such as the Jack Nicklaus Vidanta Golf Course attract golfers from all over the world for a beachfront golf game that you will remember for years to come.
