Grandparents are our favorite people on the entire planet; they protect us, spoil us, and cheer us on when we need it the most, therefore they have their own special day on our calendars: Grandparents Day. This holiday is a great excuse to remind ourselves just how important our grandparents are to us. We create a special relationship in which we share every milestone with them; they are our personal cheering squad in our lives and we are very lucky to have them around.

This day is celebrated in different parts of the world including France, Spain, Germany, and Australia. In the United States, it’s celebrated the first Sunday after Labor Day, but in Mexico we celebrate it on August 28th. This is the perfect day to honor their wisdom, our family history, and the time they have spent with us.

If you are looking for ideas to celebrate your grandparents, we came up with a few great reasons to celebrate this special day with a trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

Share a Special Bonding Experience

Bonding experiences for grandparents day

Engaging with a different culture in new locations can be a great bonding experience. Traveling to Mexico together can offer a new opportunity to bond with your grandparents on a deeper level than you might have in regular daily life. You will get to learn more about their problem-solving skills, the way in which they communicate when trying new things, and how they really are as individuals.

Create New Memories and Stories

Create new memories with your grandparents.

When we take the time to see the world through the lenses of our elders, we observe the world in a different way; they see it through their history and experiences. The mixing of perspectives gives us a broader understanding of our surroundings and how much they have evolved for the better.

To create new memories with your grandparents will be priceless! Your attention will be focused on one another, therefore you will be getting quality time and creating endless new stories to share with the other members of your family.

Pamper Yourselves – You Deserve It!

Grandparents deserve the gift of being pampered, too! And there is no better way to pamper them than to book a stay at a world-class resort in Puerto Vallarta. An all-inclusive resort provides a stress-free trip with everything you need for a fantastic vacation all in one place.

Connect with Family History

Family walking.

Taking a trip with your grandparents is a great opportunity to dig up more about your family history. You can spend time together and you can even write down a list of questions to ask. Another great idea is to record the conversation, so you can save it for other generations and start creating your own family archive.

Asking about your family history can not only bring you and your grandparents closer together, but it is also a great activity to learn about history in general. You can learn more about the atmosphere of a significant event that occurred during your grandparent’s lives. Also, you can learn more about your family’s story by asking them about their upbringing and their childhood; how did they like their brothers and sisters? What are their favorite childhood memories?

Make Up for Lost Time

Making up for lost time.

The enforced separations during the pandemic have caused many to be isolated from their relatives, especially grandparents. Whether they live miles apart or right next door, they had to stop doing activities they enjoy. Even before the pandemic hit, researchers knew that isolation affects the elderly in a psychological and physical way, therefore to have a meaningful vacation with them now, can mean the world to them.

A great way to reconnect with them is to enjoy the time together in a relaxing, stress-free environment, such as enjoying a family beach vacation. A grandparent’s getaway is a great plan to spend more time together and reconnect in a more profound way. It is very important to check that the place where you are staying is following all the protocols required for your family’s safety; Garza Blanca in Puerto Vallarta has this area covered.

3 Things to Do with Your Grandparents in Puerto Vallarta

We came up with 3 things to do on a multigenerational trip to this paradisiacal destination.

1. Take a Boat Trip Around the Area

Boat trip for grandparents day.

Puerto Vallarta is a destination that offers tons of activities to do, but its surroundings are great places to visit as well. Take your grandparents on a boat ride to the different and gorgeous beaches that one can find in the Vallarta-Nayarit area.

Yelapa is a great place when one is looking to have a break from the city. What makes this picturesque town so special is that you can access it only by boat or catamaran; its azure waters, white sand, and tranquil atmosphere is said to be one of Bob Dylan’s favorite places in the world. Also, the beautiful waterfalls and gorgeous sunsets are a must when visiting the island.

Marietas Islands are a protected national marine park. Islas Marietas Eco Discovery is a popular tour offered by Vallarta Adventures. You and your grandparents will enjoy exploring breathtaking landscapes by catamaran. You will also have the opportunity to stop and snorkel, paddle board, or kayak. If your grandparents are less active, they can stay on the boat until everyone comes back onboard. Then the catamaran will cruise to the exclusive Majahuitas Beach Club, which is only accessible by boat, and one of the most beautiful beaches in Mexico. The tour lasts 7 hours and you will enjoy lunch and snacks onboard. From December through until the end of March, you will also have the chance to spot humpback whales.

Go on a Culinary Tour

Mexico is known for having some of the best food in the world, so traveling to Mexico can be a great chance to experience its incredible gastronomy.
