Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

This is more than just a coastal resort getaway. Somehow Puerto Vallarta — also known as “Vallarta” or just “PV” — maintains a small-town atmosphere, while still boasting one of the most unique and sophisticated ocean fronts in Mexico. The dining options and the hotel choices reflect more of the same — you’ll find both elegance and efficiency mingled together within the hotel and restaurant areas.

Most people associate this west coast town with its boundaries — the Banderas Bay that snakes along the coast or the palm tree-lined Sierra Madre Mountains that stand tall in the east — but Puerto Vallarta is more than its scenery. Take some time to discover its other perks for yourself by sampling the delicious food, discovering a hidden boutique in the Zona Romantica, sipping a signature cocktail at a bar along the Malecon or dancing to a salsa beat in a Havana-style nightclub.
