Known as the Pearl of the Pacific, Puerto Vallarta is a paradise for vacationers. Over the years, Puerto Vallarta has become one of Mexico's most popular winter destinations due to its great diversity and almost perfect climate. Along with golden beaches, mountains and jungles, visitors can discover modern amenities and enticing attractions here.
If you love the water, you can swim, snorkel, scuba dive, visit with sea lions and even spot a whale in Puerto Vallarta. If you like your vacations packed full of adventure, rent a sailboat, zipline through the jungle, or go on a mountain hike or jeep safari.
Pamper yourself at Puerto Vallarta's day spas, which offer plenty of treatments including an Aztec sweat lodge purifying ritual. And make sure to leave space in your suitcase for the many fabulous finds you'll want to bring back with you. Some of the best items sold here include resort wear, fine art, decor, dazzling jewelry, unique handicrafts and more.
Before the debut of John Huston's 1964 film The Night of the Iguana, Puerto Vallarta was a quiet fishing village on the Pacific Coast where the states of Jalisco and Nayarit met. When Elizabeth Taylor came here to keep an eye on Richard Burton while he was filming with Ava Gardner, the publicity around the movie and its stars put Puerto Vallarta on the map.
When it comes to romance, Puerto Vallarta delivers. Dazzling sunsets, swaying palms and candlelit beach dinners accompanied by mariachi quartets are sure to fan the flames of passion. Food lovers will also find the dining options here appealing. With all the variety, there's plenty to savour at this city's many fine restaurants.
Downtown Puerto Vallarta has kept its colonial charm and boasts a vibrant street scene all day and night. Visitors here are warmly welcomed by hospitable, fun-loving locals who will make your vacation truly memorable.
