Puerto Vallarta is a sophisticated and beautiful city with a relaxed atmosphere situated in a long popular Mexican beach resort, and one of the nicest resort areas in Mexico. Tourists have been coming to Puerto Vallarta since the 1930s, but it became an “in” place after John Huston’s Night of the Iguana was filmed here in 1964.
Puerto Vallarta has historic areas with cobblestone streets. Some say the shopping is the best of any resort town in Mexico, whether at the Mercado (market) downtown, or any of the many little shops. There are numerous art galleries. On a vacation day, you can have a swim, work on your tan, do a little shopping and gallery-hopping, devote some time to doing nothing, try a fine restaurant, dance the night away — and repeat the process the next day with a different set of beaches, stores, restaurants, and nightspots!
Puerto Vallarta is an outstanding destination for a beach lover that also gives you the flavor of modern Mexico. It’s very admired with Mexican tourists for that reason.
You can explore outside of the city with a boat ride across the bay to Yelapa, take an outing to Mismaloya, even doing a little kayaking along the coast. If you are traveling with children, there are many enjoyable and educational things to do in Yelapa and places to go: whale watching in season, for one. With over 20 miles of beaches, it’s easy to find your favorites.
