Multiple Award Winning Vallarta-Nayarit Stands Out

January 12, 2016

The joint promotion of Vallarta-Nayarit is still going strong, thanks to the ongoing efforts of the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) and the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Trust (Fidetur).

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - In Puerto Vallarta and The Riviera Nayarit, the joy and warm hospitality of its people can be readily felt. Locals, as well as newcomers and tourists, find that the sea-mountain-warm weather combination with its lush jungle, gorgeous beaches and crystal blue water, along with the magic captured in its magnificent sunsets, creates the perfect formula, drawing people from all over the world to this idyllic bay.

This destination appeals to: family, couples, LGBT community, retirees, adventure and nature seekers, foodies, and art and culture lovers. It also attracts business and convention organizers, and those seeking medical services.

Puerto Vallarta conserves its traditional Mexican essence, while the entire Banderas Bay area has become a cosmopolitan, international resort area. This mixture of the traditional and cosmopolitan can be tangibly experienced in both the many award-winning restaurants and galleries, and the artistic, cultural events.

Vallarta-Nayarit is one of the most acclaimed destinations in Mexico with many accolades:

Named "World's Friendliest City" by readers of Condι Nast in 2001, and in January 2015 as the "#2 Best Place to Visit in Mexico" by the US News & World Report, others include:
