Surrounded by the lush foothills of the Sierra Madre Mountains and overlooking the Bay of Banderas, Puerto Vallarta offers something for every travel style. This Pacific Mexico destination is home to world-class hotels and resorts with activities and amenities for all ages, whether you’re planning an adults only getaway for two or a fun-filled vacation with the whole family. Head into downtown Puerto Vallarta to walk along the scenic Malecón, Puerto Vallarta’s mile-long esplanade that winds along the coast where you can admire picturesque views of the Pacific Ocean and the sculptures lining the boardwalk. Old Town is a must-visit for history buffs and culture-seekers, where live musicians perform in the charming zocalos (squares) and charming restaurants serving authentic Mexican cuisine line the cobblestone streets. There are plenty of opportunities for adventure as well, where you can head off on an ATV excursion through the foothills of the Sierra Madre Mountains, zipline high above the treetops or ride down Cuale River on an inner tube.
