Puerto Vallarta: A Pet Friendly Destination

Puerto Vallarta is a destination that stands out for the hospitality provided to its visitors, including those who decide to live an unforgettable experience in the company of their pets, an adventure that is possible thanks to the diversity of pet friendly hotels, restaurants and air connectivity that the city has.

As an example of this is Aeromar, (an airline featuring Mexican flights and to the United States, with routes to Puerto Vallarta), that allows you to travel with the pet in the cabin under a simple protocol that can be consulted on this website.

In addition, Puerto Vallarta has more than 30 pet friendly hotels, where cats and dogs are welcome to enjoy the spectacular natural beauty that our destination has. Some of these renowned resorts are: The Westin Resort & Spa, Sheraton Buganvilias Resort & Convention Center, Hotel Mío, Hotel Villa Mercedes, Hotel Puerto de Luna, Casitas Maraika, Hotel Mercurio and Hotel Casa Iguana, among others.

Similarly, our destination has at least 150 pet friendly restaurants, where pets will be received with the utmost respect and affection.

Some shopping malls such as La Isla Shopping Village, Plaza Caracol and Galerías Vallarta are part of the places that are committed to accepting and respecting pets in an appropriate environment.

In our destination, pets are allowed to walk along the Puerto Vallarta beaches, as long as they wear their leash, and their waste is cleaned up with biodegradable bags by their owners.

Finally, along the almost two kilometers of the Malecón, you will be able to find safe drinking fountains for pets, which will allow you to take a quiet tour of this traditional place.

Including your pets in travel adventures is possible in Puerto Vallarta, an inclusive destination with all members of the family.

“We started to advertise 7 or 8 years ago and certainly it has helped us position our brand. Now that we have improved a lot in quality, processes and finished products, our marketing in the magazine is precisely to strengthen the leadership we have earned through the 13 years in the area. I also think that we also have grown with the advertisement and that it has been done and it has helped us get to where we are now.”

“There are lots of reasons why we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles for several years. One of them is that they know pretty well their target, because they know who are their readers and they adapt as much as possible the content and material that is offered. For these reasons they have a growing number of readers which is very important for us. Another reason is that many people  —including us— think that the magazine has been as a serious publication since its beginnings. Historically, Vallarta Lifestyles has known how to capture the audience and has done it pretty well."

“Since its beginnings and until today, the quality in photography and editorial design of Vallarta Lifestyles is unrivaled, because there’s nothing similar in this region of Mexico. Besides, to the foreign community that visit us, this magazine is essential if they want to know what’s new and what’s going on in our destination.”
