Default mexican riviera beach question

I'm going on Sapphire in oct. My wife wants to lay out on the beach and play. Is better to book a beach excursion with princess or are there beach resorts near the docking area that we could use? What about renting stuff like jet skis? we're going to catalina is land, cabo, PV, and mazatlan

for Puerto Vallarta:

Beaches

Best beach for a half-day visit: Any of the beaches fronting resorts along the Golden Zone hotel district, walkable from the port.

Best beach for active types: Playa Los Muertos Beach (head to La Palapa for great peoplewatching and cocktails).

Beach as cinematic setting: Playa Mismaloya, set in a cove, was the site of filming for "Night of the Iguana." Requires a taxi ride.

For Cabo San Lucas:

Beaches

Best beach for a half-day visit: Playa Medano, fronting the Bahia de Cabo and the Sea of Cortez is an easy taxi ride from the marina.

Best beach for active types: Same: all sorts of watersports rentals are on hand at Playa Medano.

Quiet Beaches: (Car renters only) Head out to the "corridor" between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, which rings the Sea of Cortez, and pick one! Closer in: Playa del Amor, otherwise known as "Lover's Beach," is snuggled between rock formations near El Arco and fronts both the bay and the Sea of Cortez; you need to hire a water taxi to drop you off and pick you up (they're easily available in the marina) and there are no facilities so bring a picnic.

Great suggestions, Grandma, but the Golden Zone in Mazatlan is a LONG walk from the port. Best to take one of the pulmoneras.

If you'll read closely, I didn't give advice for Mazatlan. only P.V. and Cabo.

Ahhh, I see ... I am so used to associating Golden Zone with Mazatlan.
