Want to escape to another world? Travel to the beautiful old city of Puerto Vallarta, a real Mexican pueblo carved out the space between the rugged Sierra Madres and Mexico’s beautiful Pacific Coast. Puerto Vallarta is among a string of towns lining Banderas Bay, one of the biggest and deepest bays in the world and a Mecca for all kinds of exotic and beautiful sea life! You can see graceful manta rays, playful dolphins, adorable sea turtles, enormous humpback whales and much more on whale-watching tours, while scuba diving, or even from a comfy spot on the soft sandy beach! Fish for the most sought-after sport fish like marlin, swordfish, and others, or take a relaxing sunset cruise with that special someone!
In town, you’ll find a variety of traditional architecture, beautiful works of art, small shops, delicious restaurants serving fresh seafood and any cuisine imaginable! Enjoy a sinfully delicious treat from a street vendor or dine in 4-star style! Puerto Vallarta, while significant in size, has never lost that real small-town ambiance, and is not overly commercialized.
There’s plenty to do around town and outside of town, with an endless array of tours and activities highlighting the best of Puerto Vallarta, with zip lines, rappelling, rock climbing and more to pique the interest of adventurous travelers, along with lush vegetation and over 315 species of colorful birds to enjoy for a more laid-back day in the jungle. There are 8 championship golf courses in the immediate area. Just up the coast is Sayulita, a paradise for surfers, and the now world-famous Hidden Beach, a unique geographical structure that amounts to a sandy beach inside a cave with a large, circular skylight over head!
If you are looking for an authentic, non-commercialized tropical city to escape the everyday and have a real adventure or the relaxing and romantic getaway of a lifetime, look no further than Puerto Vallarta, Mexico!
