What travelers to Puerto Vallarta are saying

We immersed ourselves in the culture this trip instead of staying up in Neuvo Vallarta where it's pretty Americanized. It was all about getting to live, eat and socialize like a local. We ate some amazing street tacos at a few vendors throughout our stay. We celebrated an evening at Ah Caramba which has a stunning view down onto the town and also ate at the Blue Shrimp which had fantastic food down in the romantic zone. There seemed to be lots going on every evening on the Malecon which was fun to be nivolved in. My son and I went zip lining at the Nogalito Ecopark which was amazing. The staff were a hoot and the lunch we had after a hot day in the jungle was very good. We did a lot of walking in the hills and throughout town and felt safe welcome. On our journeys people would say hello and talk to our son who knows some Spanish. We felt at home and are looking at real estate for a second home. David S.

I love Vallarta and return every year I've taken others as a guide once. The heat can be overwhelming in the summer, but, in 2014, the weather was incredible pleasant. Travelers should note that there are two Vallartas--the Northern part is like a giant American strip mall, with expensive U.S. hotels and food chains, where the gringos create their own little bubble, use Mexicans and their land, and the money returns to the States. The Southern part, usually called either the Romantic Zone or Old Vallarta is a quaint little, international village with cobblestone streets. The boardwalk and night clubs are located in the are between. Also, you can walk anywhere in the Southern part the Northern part would require transportation, unless you stayed in your little resort. Also, the best food I've ever eaten is in the Southern part--if you go, check out Archie's Wok. I would NEVER stay in the Northern part.

Take the day trip to Las Caletas. Book through Vallarta Adventures. The staff on the boat is the best....they are servers, entertainers and activity directors all rolled into one. It is hard to describe the serenity that I felt as the boat drove into the beach. Greeted by parots, singers, food, drink....and the day of absolute fun. And special Thank You to Aldo who was willing to kayak with me an activity I had not experienced previously. I love PV and think of it as my second home.

Relax on the perfect beaches of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Puerto Vallarta is a vibrant beach resort city located along Mexico's fabulous Pacific coast. Offering a full slate of leisure activities, from parasailing to gallery-hopping, this friendly vacation destination supplies visitors with all the modern amenities of urban culture blended perfectly with an intimate, small-town vibe. Rich with biodiversity, the areas surrounding Puerto Vallarta boast green vistas, secluded coves and historic sites rich with intrigue and mystery. Famous for its eclectic restaurants and luxurious resorts, Puerto Vallarta is a destination visitors will want to return to time and again.

Must-see sites in and around Puerto Vallarta

Stroll the Malecon past Los Arcos

Puerto Vallarta's Malecon is a pleasant seaside path that passes by picturesque Banderas Bay, PV's busy harbor. Los Arcos, an arched oceanfront structure in the southern part of the city, is a historic site that doubles as a backdrop for open-air concerts.

Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe

This iconic church defines the skyline of Puerto Vallarta. Open daily for mass, this soaring red brick building with its distinctive, minaret-style bell towers offers a distinctive photo opportunity for visitors.

Botanical Gardens of Vallarta

Escape the hubbub of the busy city on a day trip to the Botanical Gardens of Vallarta, just a 30-minute ride from downtown. You can also travel there aboard the El Tuito bus, which boards at Carranza and Aguacate streets. Exceptional plants and a popular restaurant welcome you to a peaceful departure from shopping and the beach.

Bucerias

Consider a sojourn by bus to the sleepy fishing village of Bucerias. An easy eight miles from downtown Puerto Vallarta, Bucerias boasts remarkably uncrowded strands, art galleries, dining and fishing. If you time your visit right, you can watch the local fisherman draw in their nets along the beach.

Playa Los Muertos

Arguably the most frequented beach in Puerto Vallarta, Playa Los Muertos brings the entire vacation experience together with water sport rentals, fine dining and distinctive thatched -roof bars that serve your favorite cerveza in the open air.

Annual festivals and celebrations

Attending yearly celebrations while on vacation gives you a great insider's view of the culture and the people. Coordinate your trip to Puerto Vallarta with one of its popular events to enrich your experiences. Each November, for example, the Sailfish and Marlin International Tournament takes place, drawing anglers from around the world, and the Puerto Vallarta Gourmet Festival attracts foodies from far and wide.

Where to stay

If you live to shop, eat out and dance the night away, downtown is the place to stay. The east side of town is home to area residents while luxurious Marina Vallarta, located in the south section of town and only five minutes from Puerto Vallarta International Airport (PVR), offers upscale guest accommodations, a golf course and a water park. The city's Hotel Zone lies to the south of Marina Vallarta and hosts an abundance of hotels, shops, restaurants and public transportation stops. Zona Romantica, still further south, encompasses the Malecon, Our Lady of Guadalupe Church and Playa Los Muertos.

Prices for Puerto Vallarta hotels vary according to the location, amenities and services the facility offers. Many basic lodging options are available for under $100, while more luxurious Puerto Vallarta hotels cost up to several hundred dollars per night.

Climate

June through November is the warmest time of year with temperatures typically hovering in the low 90s. December through May is cooler, with average high temperatures in the mid-80s.

Best time to stay

April through June is the best time of year to go to Puerto Vallarta. Hotel rates and airfares are relatively low, much like the temperature. January through March is high season, and you will find yourself paying more for a vacation during this period. Typically, July, August and September feature very hot days and occasional rain, so they are not as popular months for travelers. October is a temperate, quiet time of year preferred by visitors who are looking for a low-key getaway.

Activities in Puerto Vallarta

River Expedition

Adventure, adrenaline and extreme fun is what River Expedition has to offer to nature lovers, as well as thrill seekers. It is an experience not to be missed!

Canopy River - Zip Line Tour

Feel the wind in your face and butterflies in your stomach as you go flying full speed at 200 feet above the river, among the treetops, enjoying the majestic scenery surrounding the park, a place where adventure has only one name and the special guest is you.
