About Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta is a top tourist resort location that still retains the true flavor of Mexico. It features Colonial architecture and world-class hotels, and sophisticated amenities. Not to mention the dream-like natural setting between the Sierra Madre Mountains and the deep blue Pacific waters. It’s considered the ideal vacation spot for the first-time Mexico visitor, while also boasting enough diversity of activities to keep people coming back again and again.

Once a sleepy fishing village, the town has grown along with the development of the hotel zone without losing its original charm. It still retains the typical flavor of its cobblestone streets and the contrast of its white houses and red-tile roofs. It also offers exciting activities: big-time sport fishing, golf, motorcycling, whale watching, art, diving, hot air balloons, surfing and more. It’s a great place for epicureans, offering gourmet restaurants for the upscale diner as well as affordable cafes for the budget traveler.

Testimonials

Thank you for all of your hard work and assistance with the Motorola Teaming for Excellence meetings. Since these were new programs for us at Creative Group, it was especially reassuring to know that we had a trusted travel partner to work with in Cancun. It was a pleasure working with you and your staff.

It was a pleasure to work with you and your crews. They were truly wonderful. Just know that you were a part of making this incentive trip a success. Thank you for all your hard work, quick responses, and attentiveness.

Emily Barberry / Meeting Planner / NetManage Winners Circle

I wanted to drop you this note to thank you and your staff for doing awesome job with our Incentive program in February. We definitely could not have done it without your well-experienced staff.

Gerri Neff / Executive Meeting Planner / Teksystems

Since we have returned from the Aerotek Incentive, we have received numerous calls complimenting us on the way you handled the group. It is not easy to handle 2000 people but from the time the planes landed, to the moving of the guests and baggage to the hotel, your staff at the airport was always on duty and did an outstanding job for all of the guests. Your Hospitality Desks at the hotel were run so efficiently and the optional tours and dining requests were handled without any complications. The return transfer to the airport and the departure notices were handled efficiently. That you were able to move 2000 people that quickly was amazing.
