Waterfalls near Yelapa, Mexico – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingYes, there’s a river in Puerto Vallarta called the Rio Cuale, the main river that goes to the ocean from the mountains. Rio Cuale is a very shallow river and is not navigable. People can walk around Rio Cuale, and maybe in some parts of the river you can go in just to dip, but if you want to go swimming, Rio Cuale wouldn’t be good for that. People don’t fish in Rio Cuale - there’s fish in there but nothing of importance.
 
There’s a waterfall that people go to by the Yelapa area, a town half an hour south of Puerto Vallarta. I go there with family; it’s a nice place. There aren’t any lakes in the Puerto Vallarta area.

Restaurant on Rio Cuale, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingThere are rivers, lakes, and waterfalls in and around Puerto Vallarta but they are mostly available only during the rainy season. They used to be full of water throughout the year but now, with the climate change, and this crazy weather all over the world, some of those rivers and waterfalls have been affected. Now we have to wait until it rains to see them fill with water to be able to swim and get on the rivers.
 
All of the rivers are very small rivers that people can get into and enjoy. Some of the more rivers here are Rio Cuale, El Eden, and Palo Maria, which is about 10 minutes south of Puerto Vallarta by car. Palo Maria is more for the youth because you have to do some climbing to get to the river. But each of these three rivers are popular and all of them are beautiful. 
 
The perfect time to go to the rivers is from July to November when the water is not that cold; it’s just perfect and the weather is fine. Also there’s not a lot of people during this time in Vallarta so you can enjoy the rivers more without worrying about the weather or the rivers being too crowded. 
 
As for the waterfalls, there used to be more here in Puerto Vallarta. However, due to climate change some of the waterfalls have dried up. When I first got here 12 years ago, when we drove on the highway, we would see the mountains and there would be some beautiful waterfalls, but now they are gone.
