|Around the Bay and Beyond|
No matter what your interests are, Puerto Vallarta is always ready to entertain, offering a wide variety of entertainment options that will keep everyone amused. But it's up to you to decide how you want to spend your time here....
While every destination in Mexico has something to offer visitors, romantic Puerto Vallarta delivers something for everyone: beaches on a beautiful bay, great dining, a sizzling nightlife, movie theaters, cultural events, art galleries, excellent shopping, world-class golf and tennis, activities and excursions galore, and fun, fun, fun!
In Puerto Vallarta you can relax on a beautiful beach, play a round of championship golf, shop for Mexican handcrafts and dine in a wide variety of restaurants. There are also countless tours and activities to enjoy - from exciting jeep safaris and canopy tours in the tropical jungle to whale watching, sailing, snorkeling or scuba diving in Banderas Bay.
Visitors who appreciate cultural experiences will love the festivals and events hosted in Puerto Vallarta each year. A variety of cultural events, including the Gourmet Festival and an International Film Festival are designed for the cosmopolitan visitor, while Fishing, Tennis and Golf Tournaments are complemented by the Old Mexico flavor of this cozy seaside village.
And many visitors prefer to spend their days relaxing on the beach soaking up the warm tropical rays. Puerto Vallarta is a haven for weary vacationers who want nothing more than a good book, a tan and icy cold beers or margaritas delivered at regular intervals by an adept, and usually bilingual, waiter.
