Puerto Vallarta - A Unique Destination Where Mexico Comes To Life
Nestled between the jungle vegetation of the Sierra Madre Mountains and the crystal clear waters of Banderas Bay, Puerto Vallarta offers visitors everything they are looking for in a Mexico beach vacation.
Blending "Old Mexico" warmth and charm with the modern amenities and conveniences of a cosmopolitan city, Puerto Vallarta offers visitors the best of both worlds.
Cobblestone streets, colonial architecture and open-air markets offer a view into Mexico's past, while five-star resorts, championship golf courses, world-class shopping, gourmet restaurants and a sizzling nightlife satisfy even the most sophisticated traveler.
As one of Mexico's most attractive destinations, Puerto Vallarta's steady growth has been accompanied by improved services, an extensive expansion of its infrastructure and an increasing number of cultural activities to better serve both the growing number of travelers who visit Puerto Vallarta every year, and the city's ever-growing population.
