Puerto Vallarta Tours and Vacations

Puerto Vallarta

Situated on Banderas Bay, this tropical paradise combines the old with the new in gracious style. Cobblestone streets wind through the town and art galleries and colorful boutiques are filled with Mexican folk art and handicrafts.

International cuisine can be found in any town, as well as in all resort hotels. Puerto Vallarta is divided into various tourist areas; Rivera Nayarit, features luxury resorts and eco-tourism boutique hotels, world-renowned surfing, four professional golf courses, rare native wildlife including sea turtles and tropical birds, mountain and island adventures, shopping for local artwork and traditional Huichol handicrafts, charming fishing towns and miles of serene beaches.

Puerto Vallarta is bordered by the jungle-covered Sierra Madre Mountains, which nature lovers enjoy hiking and biking. These mountains are home to the Huichol, descendants of the Aztecs and one of the world’s last indigenous cultures. Their art is quite desirable, and is sold in Puerto Vallarta.

Puerto Vallarta-Riviera Nayarit Vacations

If you’re considering a vacation to the Vallarta-Nayarit region, then chances are you’re looking for something a little bit out of the ordinary but with a welcoming, easy-to-explore vibe. And you’ll certainly find all that and more in this long stretch of Mexico’s Pacific Coast. Encompassing long beaches, mountainous jungles, and cultural towns, Vallarta-Nayarit is like a well-stocked spice cabinet: full of different flavors for different types of vacationers. From the iconic boardwalk in downtown Puerto Vallarta to whale-watching in Banderas Bay to the secluded, dramatic landscapes of Punta Mita, Vallarta-Nayarit has a plethora of choices that can be tailored to you.

Downtown Puerto Vallarta

The region’s most iconic area is certainly Puerto Vallarta itself. The Malecón boardwalk along Banderas Bay is closed to motorized traffic, so you’ll only find pedestrians perusing the shops, art galleries and dining. If you have the kiddos in tow, make sure to stop by the small amphitheater near the main square to see the working artists, clowns and other entertainers. Then, just two blocks off of the boardwalk, step inside the beautiful Cathedral for a quieter moment of reflection.

Riviera Nayarit

The name of the game in Riviera Nayarit is golf. Take on El Tigre Golf & Country Club if you’re up for a challenge. If you’re looking for great views and a big-name designer, then Jack Nicklaus’ renovation of El Nayar Vidanta is the place for you. When you’re done on the links, check out the small fishing town of Bucerias for fish tacos and a cold beer.

Punta Mita

Honeymooners and couples, take note: Punta Mita is perhaps one of the most romantic destinations you can dream up. The sunsets here are dreamy, to say the least. Put yourself on vacation time and explore Sayulita, a colorful surfing town that’s known for its seafood tacos, art scene and expats. Celebrities have been spotted in Punta Mita and resorts have expanded in this area in recent years, so you can be sure that this hideaway won’t stay hidden for long.

Mismaloya

The area just south of Puerto Vallarta was originally made famous by the 1964 film The Night of the Iguana. These days, it’s known for its lovely beaches and authentic Mexican vibe. Families will appreciate the laid-back atmosphere and all-ages resorts. With a mix of adventure, culture and relaxation, Mismaloya is suited for travelers who want to balance their days hanging on the beach and exploring the nearby downtown area of Puerto Vallarta.
