Gustavo Diaz Ordaz International Airport (PVR)

A resort town on Mexico’s Pacific Coast, Puerto Vallarta charms visitors with its natural beauty and endless recreation. Once a tiny fishing village, the surrounding area retains the timeless, laid-back feeling of authentic Mexico. This scenic locale is punctuated with winding, quaint cobblestone streets bordered by old buildings with red-tile roofs. Families, active travelers, nature lovers and fine-dining enthusiasts never run out of places to explore, from gorgeous golf courses and miles of seascapes with whale watching to fishing tournaments and the best art scene in Mexico.

Just north of Puerto Vallarta, Riviera Nayarit boasts 100 miles of pristine coastline, framed by the Sierra Madre, and loaded with luxurious resorts, world-renowned surfing, golf courses, rare native wildlife with sea turtles, shops selling local artwork and traditional handicrafts, charming fishing towns and miles of serene beaches. Because of its location among both mountains and ocean, Riviera Nayarit is renowned for offering the most exciting tours and adventures in any beachfront destination.

Puerto Vallarta: Be Dazzled By This Enticing Coastal City

A magnificent beach destination, the Puerto Vallarta region is several destinations rolled into one, each with its own character and charm. The River Cuale divides the town into north and south. On the southern end is the quaint Romantic Zone, where the Playa los Muertos attracts sun worshippers to its golden sand and countless beach bars. Further south the seaside villages of Boca de Tomatlan and Mismaloya is where The Night of the Iguana was filmed. North of the river, the Old Town meanders uphill to Gringo Gulch. Here, you’ll find the Plaza de Armas (main square) and the Los Arcos Amphitheatre, where daily free performances draw crowds.

Puerto Vallarta’s renowned Malecon (seaside promenade) runs from the Romantic Zone to the beginning of the
Hotel Zone. Here you’ll find a whimsical collection of bronze sculptures, including the town’s iconic seahorse.
If you love to shop, bring an extra suitcase because you’ll find a high concentration of boutiques and shops here,
offering everything from folk art to beachwear. From tapas bars and taco stands to chic spots on the beach
and farmers' markets, Puerto Vallarta is a foodie nirvana, and is second only to Mexico City as the country's
food mecca.

Finding your perfect stretch of sand won't be a problem. Puerto Vallarta's original happening beach, Playa los Muertos (Beach of the Dead), is action central for both locals and tourists alike. A string of restaurants run the length
of the beach, most with umbrellas and lounges for daytime and romantic tables for candlelight dining at night.
Once you leave the beach, Puerto Vallarta’s hilly cobblestone streets seem to merge into the green foothills of the stunning Sierra Madre.

Today, Puerto Vallarta reigns as one of Mexico’s most popular winter destinations because of its great diversity and almost perfect climate. Along with golden beaches, mountains and jungles you’ll discover modern amenities and creature comforts. It's also a sports lover's paradise offering an endless array of outdoor adventures — from zip lining and surfing to mountain biking and sport fishing.
