Puerto Vallarta is one of the most popular destinations on Mexico’s Pacific coast. Located on the lovely Banderas Bay, the city has both modern and historical elements and romantic charm. It’s a gay-friendly destination but is also popular with families. Whether you’re a foodie, an adventure-seeker, an art enthusiast or a beach bum, this city has something tailored just for you.
Puerto Vallarta’s beautiful Malecón, the beachfront boardwalk, is a mile-long stretch that doubles as an open-air museum. Start at the northern end of the route and make your way towards the Plaza Principal, admiring the impressive collection of sculptures and sandcastle art along the way.
Playa Los Muertos in the Romantic Zone is a beautiful beach and is perfect for swimming—and for a day of fun in the sun, Mantamar Beach Club is a great choice.
