Whether you’re in the mood to relax and get away from everything or party all night, Puerto Vallarta is the perfect place for you to vacation. Puerto Vallarta represents all the Mexican traditions, folklore and elegance that sets it apart from all other destinations in Mexico. This majestic city’s cobblestone streets, whitewashed buildings and terra cotta tile roofs combined with timeless Mexican music, create a relaxed and festive atmosphere. The natural beauty of the ocean and hills and the hospitality of the people will surely win your heart.
This Mexican seaside paradise has something special for everyone.
There are cultural events and exhibits, exciting day trips to the jungle, relaxing days at the beach, and countless romantic hideaways to explore.
This area enjoys over 300 sunny days a year; and with temperatures averaging right around 83 degrees, it's perfect for the seemingly endless number of beautiful beaches. Choose from wide-open soft, white, sand beaches to picturesque rock surrounded coves. The most popular beach is Los Muertos, just south of the Rio Cuale, in Old Town. Weekends at this beach are fantastic. The beaches just north, on the road to Punta de Mita, are full of quaint beachside restaurants featuring an array of delicious fresh seafood. The southern beaches, like their northern partners, are beautiful and usually much less crowded.
When you're here, make sure to charter a "Pangas" to go fishing. Almost everyone will catch something. The waters are abundant with sailfish all year long and other species more seasonal. Or if serious shopping is your game, this area is a dream come true. There are specialty shops galore lining virtually every street in the downtown area (where English is widely spoken). There are outdoor markets, flea markets, shopping centers, small indoor centers, and everything in between.
