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.
