Puerto Vallarta

On Nayarit’s border with Jalisco, Puerto Vallarta is found, one of the jewels of this Mexican coast. This city, formerly a fishing village, is perfect for taking long walks by the sea on its legendary boardwalk. The city is divided in two by the Cuale River, with the southern area being ideal for those who love the sea, with the beach, several beach bars for enjoying local gastronomy, and several picturesque fishing villages as we leave Puerto Vallarta. On the north shore of the river, the whole old town extends with its beautiful streets, its Plaza de Armas and Gringo Gulch, a striking neighborhood with charming architecture. Puerto Vallarta is a curious mixture of tradition and modernity, and is suitable for all budgets, as its wide range of establishments offers unique experiences for all tastes.

It is the most notable city in the surroundings of Riviera Nayarit, a perfect place for visiting and being charmed by this part of Mexico. To begin the day there is nothing better than enjoying the landscape of the southern area of Puerto Vallarta, where the various beaches, especially Playa de los Muertos, invite you to swim in the Pacific and savor the great gastronomy of the area, prepared from fresh produce fished on this coast. Once the afternoon arrives, it is time to visit the other side of the river to discover the secrets of the city. Its old streets are the perfect place for purchasing local handicrafts or simply being enchanted by the beautiful architecture of this city, especially if you visit the Plaza de Armas at the weekend when Puerto Vallarta is flooded by music and couples go out to dance.
