Once a sleepy seaside village, Puerto Vallarta has evolved into a lovely resort destination on the Mexican Riviera. El Malecón, its esplanade dotted with shops, galleries, cafés, and bronze sculptures, parallels Banderas Bay, which is considered one of the world’s most beautiful locations. Here and in Mazatlan, visitors swim, snorkel, scuba dive, parasail, and go deep-sea fishing until sunset-watching and tequila time beckon.
Fall in love with Puerto Vallarta’s old world charm and dreamlike natural beauty. Lush tropical jungles surround this quaint colonial city with interesting architecture, cobblestone streets and white-washed buildings. Discover chic boutiques as you stroll along the Malecón, then check out the exploding art scene and sizzling nightlife. Sprawling golden beaches, Pacific blue waters and heart-stopping sunsets that reflect on majestic mountains complete this picture-perfect vacation spot.
