Situated on Banderas Bay, this tropical paradise combines the old with the new in gracious style. Cobblestone streets wind through the town and art galleries and colorful boutiques are filled with Mexican folk art and handicrafts.
International cuisine can be found in any town, as well as in all resort hotels. Puerto Vallarta is divided into various tourist areas; Rivera Nayarit, features luxury resorts and eco-tourism boutique hotels, world-renowned surfing, four professional golf courses, rare native wildlife including sea turtles and tropical birds, mountain and island adventures, shopping for local artwork and traditional Huichol handicrafts, charming fishing towns and miles of serene beaches.
Puerto Vallarta is bordered by the jungle-covered Sierra Madre Mountains, which nature lovers enjoy hiking and biking. These mountains are home to the Huichol, descendants of the Aztecs and one of the world’s last indigenous cultures. Their art is quite desirable, and is sold in Puerto Vallarta.
