Get Active at Hotel Cinco

In Puerto Vallarta, Stay by Suzanne Koch

If you’re looking for an active getaway in the Riviera Nayarit, venture to Hotel Cinco, where water sports and an active lifestyle are the main focus. Whether you’d like to surf, SUP, kayak, swim or snorkel, Hotel Cinco has it all. Its AquaSports Center has a sea kayak, a variety of SUP and surfboards and a Panga boat to take you to neighboring beach points.

For beginning surfers, Hotel Cinco is especially attractive; the surf break in front of the hotel is called Anclote Break and is known as one of the best breaks for beginning surfers in all of Mexico. Even more advanced surfers will enjoy the benefits at Cinco; instructors are available to give lessons to all levels of skill, all the way up to the competing level. And for a truly local touch on the surfing experience, the hotel works with a group called The Founding Fathers of Punta de Mita Surfing which is a group of five instructors who grew up surfing the Punta Mita waves and who all now own their own local surf shops.

Along with the many water-based activities, Hotel Cinco also offers Lifestyle Camps that encourage participants to enjoy an active lifestyle. The camps are an ongoing event that hosts a variety of activities from cooking lessons to art, and are open to hotel guests and nearby residents and visitors.

When hunger strikes, Hotel Cinco offers Tuna Blanca, an elegant restaurant by Chef Thierry Blouet whose main focus is fresh seafood. La Azotea offers rooftop dining and an adjacent bar and room service round out the culinary selections. Two- and three-bedroom suites make up the accommodations and range in size from 1,463- to 2,394-square feet.
