Have yourself pampered in a spa or a beauty treatment session

For the meantime, forget the beautiful sceneries of a fabulous beach. It’s time to give yourself some personal moments by visiting a spa. Have a relaxing massage on your back and neck, it will release whatever tensions you have. How about some body treatments and facials to maintain your great figure and good looks. A pedicure and massage will keep your legs going for the next day’s adventure. You need not go far since most hotels and resorts offer spa therapies. They can also have something for your children like facial treatments and beauty treatment sessions.

Enjoy some bonding moments with your children or friends.

A rainy day means staying indoors or you might catch yourself a cold if you get soaked in the rain. Have some candid conversation with your kids at the confines of your room. Play cards, board games and other games that will keep everyone entertained. Watching a movie while having some prepared snacks is truly worthwhile while the rains pummel like crazy outside of your hotel.

Pamper your loved one

Indulging in some sweet moments with your partner can ignite sparks that once were lost. Have lunch together in an “eat all you can” promo. Try going to a nearby café and have some worthy conversations while sipping your favorite cappuccino. If you feel lazy for any physical movements, then grab a book or magazine. Reading is fun and easy during idle times like this. Better for you to relax and recharge; who knows the sun will shine bright tomorrow and signals yet another busy day of exploring the sights outside.

A shopping spree at Galerias Vallarta Shopping Mall

Stores and shops abound and sell some really good stuff in this shopping Mall. There are restaurants, cafes and bars strategically located within the area to provide everything you need without going far. You can take a walk around the mall and see what’s new in some boutiques selling branded wears. You can take a sit on a bench and watch people of different colors do their thing. Gamble to your heart’s content in a casino or enjoy some nice arcade games with your kids.

If you love eating, try visit the line of fast-food establishments or family designed restaurants like Chili’s and Sirloin Stockade. Art enthusiasts can have a feast too with Galerias Vallarta sponsoring photography and painting exhibitions. It features astounding works by international artists and homegrown talents.

Watch a blockbuster movie either in English or Spanish at the Cinemax theater at the mall. It will keep boredom away and sets your mood for tomorrow’s vacation activities.

Go to Biblioteca Los Mangos, Vallarta’s public library

Learn the rich culture and tradition of the Mexican people by visiting one of its public libraries, the Biblioteca Los Mangos. It’s more than just a library, it’s a hub for people who are interested in knowing Mexico’s history, customs and ancestry.
