Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta's Pool Paradise

Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta is a vacation destination situated between the Pacific Ocean and the Sierra Madre Mountains. It comprises five resort hotels, a Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course, spas, salons, and several restaurants, among other attractions. However, Joe Pike writes that the main hook for visiting the destination is the extensive pool area at the resort complex’s Grand Mayan property.

The water attraction includes a lazy river for relaxing, several smaller connected pools for privacy, water sculptures, foundations, swim-up bars and wave pools. There is also a Mayan Temple water slide located just across from the main pool. Guests can even rent the area out for private parties and functions.
