Puerto Vallarta: More than a Beautiful Beach Town
With all its attributes, Puerto Vallarta has become one of Mexico’s most attractive beach destinations, offering something for everyone. But this picturesque region is much more than a tourist city.
In order to prove it, the Vallarta Lifestyles editorial team present 4 unique features of our destination:
Situated on Mexico’s Pacific coast in Jalisco state, Puerto Vallarta is surrounded by the waters of Banderas Bay, as well as the lush jungle and the mountains of the Sierra Madre Occidental.
Puerto Vallarta’s rich history can be discovered in many ways. One of them is by participating in a walking tour led by a local guide that captures the essence of the city.
Puerto Vallarta is home to a Malecón, a 2.5-mile-long boardwalk facing the ocean on one side and endless shops, bars and restaurants on the other. Whether you’re looking to enjoy a walk or want to people-watch from one of the many benches, the Malecón is a hotspot that comes to life when darkness sets.
Imagine being on a private beach surrounded by nature and clear waters. Add a snorkeling session and you’ll find Las Caletas. This secluded beach, located in the South Shore of Banderas Bay, is a beautiful blend of jungle and tropical settings.
