Puerto Vallarta


Fall in love with Puerto Vallarta's old world charm and dreamlike natural beauty. Lush tropical jungles surround this quaint colonial city with interesting architecture, cobblestone streets and white - washed buildings. Discover chic boutiques as you stroll along the Malecón, then check out the exploding art scene and sizzling nightlife. Sprawling golden beaches, Pacific blue waters and heart - stopping sunsets that reflect on majestic mountains complete this picture-perfect vacation spot.

Travel to the hills of the Sierra Madre nurse the Down Town zone, limiting growth, and providing lush jungle and wildlife scenes from any point in town. The Banderas Bay expansion - the second largest bay in the hemisphere - offers spectacular views of the coast and calm beaches. The bay is clean, and excellent for scuba diving and fishing.

The town itself is divided by the Rio Cuale. Traveling to Puerto Vallarta is one of the few places on Earth that can boast an "ideal" climate. It is temperate, but with sub-tropical vegetation, and the Bay offers shelter from harsh Pacific winds and hard weather. A Puerto Vallarta vacation enjoys 345 days of sunshine each year, with average daytime temperatures reaching into the high 80's. At night, the onshore breeze from the Bay descends, bringing cool air and cool night temperatures that make for pleasant sleeping conditions. Puerto Vallarta also has one of the least intrusive rainy seasons found this far south. From mid-June to about the beginning of October, there is rain almost daily. However, the rain doesn't usually start until late in the afternoon (4 or 5 o'clock) and this leaves most of the day clear for activities.
