Puerto Vallarta Travel Guide

Make no mistake; Puerto Vallarta is the big party spot in Mexico. Located on the Pacific side of the country, in the state of Jalisco, the city sits at the mouth of the picturesque Bahia de Banderas..

Puerto Vallarta is another great Mexican resort city with long stretches of white sandy beaches, however the night life is what truly sets it apart from other popular Mexican destinations. The legendary nightclub and bar scene is what makes it so popular with college students and partiers with an open mind alike.

This former fishing village has come a long way since its humble beginnings and now welcomes over a million visitors a year to its lovely shores. The beauty of a vacation in Puerto Vallarta is that you can choose the right pace for you. Want to slow it down, focus on family and relaxation? It’s all possible there. There are resorts, beaches, restaurants and entertainment for everyone. The area between Marina Vallarta and downtown is where you can find most of the hotels and three shopping malls with over 100 shops offering everything from traditional souvenirs to fashionable boutiques and modern grocery stores as well restaurants and coffee shops. In contrast with Cancun, Ixtapa or Huatulco (which are, for the most part government planned resort destinations) - Puerto Vallarta is an accidental resort town which eventually received considerable federal financial support that went toward a major overhaul of the city and coast.

Puerto Vallarta is a varied resort town with accommodations that range from modest inns, to luxurious 5 star resorts. The international airport serves North America and Europe year round and the advanced marina is Mexico’s finest. Check out Puerto Vallarta for a mixture of festive fun, relaxation and more.
