About Puerto Vallarta
Maybe it was the lush tropical climate, or the white sandy beaches that first caught the eye of tourists who began to flock to this Mexican paradise in the late 19th century.
Or maybe it was something more that made John Huston choose Puerto Vallarta as the setting for “The Night of the Iguana” (and the headline-grabbing, off-screen romance of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton).
Located on the Western Pacific coast of Mexico in the state of Jalisco, Puerto Vallarta’s charm makes the resort famous around the world. Along with its cobblestone streets, stunning beaches, plentiful marine life, lush Sierra Madre Mountains, exceptional restaurants, fine Gourmet Festival, new golf courses and vibrant culture, Puerto Vallarta is a vacationer’s paradise that has maintained its unique Old Mexico charm.
Around the Bay, beautiful beaches, lush jungles and sparkling waterfalls offer many opportunities for the adventurous, while five star resorts, privately owned vacation homes, world-class shopping and gourmet restaurants satisfy even the most sophisticated traveler.
With ample opportunities for activity at every turn, your adventurous side will never go unfulfilled, unless, of course, you want to give it a rest. In that case, Puerto Vallarta is the ideal location for glorious, sun-soaked inactivity.
