Celebrating the 4th of July in Vallarta is easy when you book your spot at Rhythms of the Night, the #1 Dinner Show in Puerto Vallarta. 


The amazing tropical venue, ambiance, delicious food, and open bar make this the perfect opportunity to toast to the 4th of July with your friends, family, and new friends you may make throughout the night! 

Replace your typical backyard 4th of July barbecue with a wonderful buffet candle-lit dinner on a hillside open dining room and terrace.

A strings trio will serenade you and your party while you eat, and then after you’ll be treated to an immersive experience complete with acrobatics, original music, and special effects.

No fireworks display can beat this. 

  1. Puerto Vallarta Sunset Cruise

The Puerto Vallarta Sunset Cruise is one of the best things to do in Vallarta on the 4th of July. 

You’ll enjoy a beautiful sunset while crossing the Bay of Banderas. As you take in the breathtaking atmosphere, you’ll be treated to a glass of fine wine, delicious hors d’oeuvres, and an open bar to celebrate the occasion.

Apart from sailing across the Bay of Banderas, you’ll spend your 4th of July in Vallarta getting a view of the Puerto Vallarta city skyline and the iconic Sierra Madre Mountains, which all come together to reflect brilliant hues and shadows you can’t get from fireworks. 

Out of all the things to do in Vallarta on the 4th of July, this is definitely one of the most eye-catching.

If you’re visiting Vallarta with your family, close friends, or a loved one and want a more intimate 4th of July experience, you can even charter a private sunset sail.

  1. Combo: Las Caletas & Dolphins

If you want to celebrate the 4th of July in Vallarta with your family, we can’t recommend the Las Caletas & Dolphin Combo tour enough. 

This activity happens in two days, so you can visit Las Caletas on the actual 4th of July, and continue with the fun on the next day with the joyous experience of interacting with our sweet Pacific Bottlenose dolphins.

At Las Caletas, adults can easily get into the celebratory mood with a Wine and Mezcal tasting, as well as with an open bar that accompanies your entire beach day. 

Your children will find all sorts of activities adapted specifically for them at our Kids Adventure Park, and as a family, you can explore the calm waters on a paddleboard or kayak.


In preparation for your evening celebrations, this tour allows you to nap in one of the shaded hammocks strung between palms—the perfect way to recharge so you can enjoy your 4th of July in Vallarta 

  1. Combo: Outdoor Adventure & Los Arcos Snorkeling

You might be unable to contain your excitement about enjoying a 4th of July vacation in Vallarta, and that’s understandable. 

If you’re just too excited to relax, you can celebrate with an incredible Outdoor Adventure & Los Arcos Snorkeling experience. This is one of the best things to do in Vallarta on the 4th of July for active families who can’t get enough of Mexico’s natural beauty. 

This tour begins with you crossing the bay on a speedboat toward the iconic Los Arcos National Park. You’ll get a good look at the marine sanctuary’s incredible crystal-clear waters, impressive rock formations, and abundant marine life. 

Once you’re all set up with your snorkeling gear, jump off the boat to explore the underwater world, admire schools of tropical fish, and, with some luck, even spot an occasional sea turtle or eagle ray. 

For the other part of this amazing tour, you hop on board the speedboat once more and head to the lush jungles of Puerto Vallarta, where you’ll soar through the treetops in a canopy zipline ride and rappel along a waterfall.

  1. Luxury Yacht & Snorkeling

You can turn the adventure down a notch and find a good middle ground for enjoying your 4th of July in Vallarta with our Luxury Yacht & Snorkeling.

This exclusive experience lets you unwind on a luxury catamaran yacht while you cruise along the bay and watch the marine birds and even dolphins in their natural habitat. While you savor the sights and sounds of the ocean, you can also enjoy fresh snacks, a delicious lunch, and a selection of tropical cocktails and other refreshing beverages.

After a panoramic ride across the bay, the yacht anchors at the beautiful Majahuitas beach, where you can participate in a surreal snorkeling experience surrounded by imposing rock walls and untouched vegetation.
