A picture-perfect resort town
Located on the Pacific Coast of Mexico, and surrounded by the Sierra Madre Mountains and Banderas Bay, Puerto Vallarta has been a popular resort town for decades. Its subtropical climate, gentle breezes, and turquoise blue waters—combined with award-winning restaurants and vibrant nightlife—makes Puerto Vallarta a picture-perfect destination, whether you’re looking for sun, sand and surf, or a night on the town.
The beaches are legendary, including Playa de Oro (Gold Beach), Los Muertos, and the famed Mismaloya Beach, where John Huston shot the film The Night of the Iguana.
Head to historic Old Town for galleries and sculptures, and go for a stroll along the Malecón for more art, cafes, bars, and people watching.
