Puerto Vallarta is a great beach town with a colonial center and lots to do in and around the city. Think beaches, watersports, nightclubs, restaurants/cafes, and boutique shopping. A short drive north or south of the city will also land you in some laid back surfing towns and fishing villages.

Puerto Vallarta is a perfect blend of everything for all travelers. There is culture, nightlife, parasailing and jungle. I can't even get into all the things that are available. Try horseback riding in the jungle or ziplining. Enjoy the Malacon at night and the stunning Pacific Coast during the day.

When my cruise ship pulled into the port, I looked out the window and saw a beautiful beachside resort. When I ran to the top of the boat to get a 360 view of the port, I saw a Walmart and a Sam's Club on the opposite side. Vacation getaway meets commercialism. LOL!
That doesn't take away the fact that Puerto Vallarta is a beautiful country. It may not be as developed as other touristy parts of Mexico but it's very real. I had a chance to venture an hour outside of the cruise port so I was able to see the world outside of the touristy areas. I wouldn't necessarily revisit Puerto Vallarta for a relaxing getaway but it would be interesting to revisit to study culture, community, and social topics.

Love Puerto Vallarta! We only stay in "old Vallarta" where the streets are still cobble stone, the food is authentic and the atmosphere is takes you back in time. We stay in the same hotel and have eaten at the same restaurants for years. The people are like family!

Puerto Vallarta is a lively place to vacation. It's got great beaches, great restaurants, great hotels, great people, great weather, and a great Malecon (Promenade) about a half mile long, with many arts and crafts stores along the way.

The town itself is not that exceptional but there is great food there, and it is surrounded by excellent beaches, great fishing, think jungles with wild mango trees, and some secret surf spots.

I've been to to so many places in Mexico and by far, my most fave city is- Puerto Vallarta! So romantic and many beautiful spots to see and enjoy. So far, I've been to this city 5 times already- that tells you how much I love Puerto Vallarta!
