Staying at a Club Regina resort in Mexico packs plenty of opportunity for fun, relaxation, and great food. But during your stay you might also want to get out and explore the surrounding areas, taking day trips to coastal towns nearby, lounging on a hidden beach, or snorkeling among coral reefs.
Whether you’re in Baja California Sur, or Puerto Vallarta, or on the east coast in Cancun, consider these day trips for a travel adventure in Mexico. You can dive deeper into the history and culture of Mexican peoples, or strap on a mask and navigate the waters on the coast. Whatever you choose, your experience will only add to your appreciation and love for Mexico.
Guests at the Club Regina Los Cabos resort might want to make room in their vacation for a day trip to Todos Santos, a 1 hour 21 minute drive northwest from the resort. Todos Santos is known for its adobe and brick buildings. After Mexican authorities designated the town as one of the country’s Pueblos Mágicos (Magical Towns), money has been invested to help develop the town and preserve its history. Originally founded as a mission in 1724, Todos Santos has that old world charm you don’t find just anywhere.
Stay: Club Regina Los Cabos
Club Regina Los Cabos’ is just a short drive from San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, Los Cabos’ two main towns. The resort sits at the intersection of the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean, a major migratory site for whales and dolphins.
You can get to Bucerías from Club Regina Puerto Vallarta in just 31 minutes. When you get there, you’ll find miles of sandy beaches, old mission-style churches, and an art walk in the evening. Located on Banderas Bay, Bucerías derives its name from the Spanish word for “diving.” Some of the first inhabitants were oyster fisherman, who used simpler methods with handheld instruments.
Travelers who spend some time in Bucerías always note the cobblestone streets and the slower pace of life here. But that doesn’t mean there’s a shortage of things to do. Whale watching, deep sea fishing, spotting sea turtles, and becoming acquainted with the Blue Footed Booby (bird) are just some of the ways you can connect with nature here. Islas Marietas is a 20 minute boat ride away, an island with “underwater caves, reefs, and neat tunnels.”
“Take a stroll along the cobblestone streets in Bucerías, it’ll be like a stroll back in time, enjoy the colorful houses, where people will greet you while they talk to their neighbors, . . . art galleries, a local market with many Huichol works of art and even small eateries where you’ll be offered fresh oysters off their shell, maybe you’ll feel tempted to stay there more than a day.”
The resort offers comfortable amenities, on-site dining, and easy beach access right in the exclusive Marina Vallarta.
The resort is located near the restaurants and bars of the exclusive Marina Vallarta just a few miles from Puerto Vallarta’s beaches and best attractions.
