One of the biggest attractions of Puerto Vallarta is its beaches, which are ideal for practicing water sports. The combination between climate and the sea is perfect for enjoying sailing, a popular hobby that has led to the organization of more and more regattas in our destination.

From March 10th to 18th, 2022, our bay will host the Vallarta Race, an event that has a great reputation thanks to its challenging route and competitiveness.

This traditional competition, which started back in 1953, starts in the coasts of San Diego, California and ends in the warm waters of Puerto Vallarta, where some of the bests sailboats in the world participate.

In this way, our destination is getting ready to receive visitors who hope to enjoy this important race. Given this, the Airbnb travel platform reported the following cities as the most interested in booking for this first regatta of Puerto Vallarta in 2022:1

  1. San Francisco
  2. Los Angeles
  3. Toronto
  4. Seattle
  5. Vancouver
  6. San Diego
  7. Chicago
  8. New York
  9. Portland
  10. Denver

In addition, Airbnb highlighted that during the 2019 edition, the hosts could have won up to 22,000 pesos.2

Regattas, as this kind of competition is known, are the ideal event for family and friends to have the opportunity to enjoy our destination for several days. In addition, they allow anyone to obtain extra income by sharing a space and bringing the benefits of this industry to everyone. With 32 boats registered for Vallarta Race 2022, the regatta promises to be one of the events that will attract a large number of visitors to the city.

If you are one of those who eagerly awaits the arrival of these wonderful fleets to the bay, these are some of the places you can find advertised on Airbnb, where you can stay and enjoy the beach:

Beachfront Condo
Having the beach a few steps away is the dream of every sea lover, and in this apartment you can enjoy and do home office from its place specially prepared so that you are not away from work.

Náutico Condo at Marina
If you want to be close to the place that will be the race’s center of attraction or if you are simply a boat lover, this apartment located in Marina Vallarta will make you feel in a nautical paradise.

Spectacular View of the Marina
This is another option if you prefer to be in a place not so close to the beach, but near restaurants and nice places to share with your family and friends, walking along the Marina boardwalk during the night.

Beachfront Studio
A spacious shared pool and a comfortable place to rest after practicing some sports on the beach, is what awaits you in this beachfront studio apartment.

“We have been advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles since the opening of our restaurant, and since then, we have kept a strong relationship. Due to its scope and distribution, the campaigns that we advertised regarding our different culinary projects have always been a success. This magazine has been consolidated as a benchmark that promotes the beauty of our destination in a creative and effective way.”

“When I first opened my gallery in 1986, my relationship with Vallarta Lifestyles started for the need of people to know me and, because it is one of the very few quality publications in the destination, I decided to advertise in it. There are clients that still remember me for the magazine, with whom I have had several years of relationship.”

“Vallarta Lifestyles is a platform that allows us to reach the kind of market that we’re looking for. I think that, since its beginnings, 30 years ago, it has been the best publication of the destination. There’s no doubt that part of our success is for the advertising that we have in the magazine.”
