Known for its beaches, charm and vibrant nightlife, Puerto Vallarta has made an indelible impression on luxury travelers who have praised the warm hospitality and genuine kindness of the Vallarta people.

Luis Villaseñor, general director of the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Trust, expressed his pride in this achievement: “Puerto Vallarta is one of the preferred destinations for the national and international market. We are proud to be included in such a prestigious ranking that recognizes our city for the hospitality and friendliness of the Vallarta people.”

“Vallarta Lifestyles has readers from Punta de Mita to Mismaloya and beyond, so announcing my business, means the positioning and recognition of my agency throughout the region. The contents of the magazine are very interesting, because they provide relevant information about activities in the destination. I am pleased to see it at hotels, restaurants and galleries, but what excites me the most is to see people with their issue in hand. That is really relevant for us.”
