A sunny beach destination with a difference, Puerto Vallarta is a love affair for all of your senses, tempting your taste buds with gourmet restaurants and local food stands, igniting your passions, soothing your stresses and offering excuse upon excuse to explore the deep blue or trek into the mountains.
Flanked by the sapphire hues of the Pacific Ocean and the palm-peppered mountains of the Sierra Madre, the horseshoe Bay of Banderas is home to one of Mexico’s most popular traditional beach destinations - Puerto Vallarta. Steeped in romance and the charms of days gone by when the likes of Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and John Huston took up residence in Puerto Vallarta, the city remains faithful to its traditional roots, with a mile long boardwalk, packed with sculptures by Mexican artists, cobble streets, red-tile roofs and quaint plazas.
Despite its traditional charm, the city’s infrastructure is prepared for the modern visitor to enjoy any one of its many stunning sandy beaches. An ideal location for lovebirds, culture-seekers, foodies, adventure aficionados and those intent on simply relaxing and perfecting the art of living, Puerto Vallarta delivers exceptional experiences week after week, with more than 300 predicted days of sunshine per year to boot.
From extreme adventure excursions, like zip lining and skydiving, to a more tranquil selection of city and tequila tours, Puerto Vallarta offers the perfect blend of entertaining activities for every type of traveler. Yoga retreats, food and wine festivals, fishing tournaments, diving excursions and more, it is no wonder that this is a city you will want to return to more than once in your life.
