While Puerto Vallarta offers all the classic amenities travelers have come to expect from a resort town -- tropical weather, sandy beaches and blue waters - it also offers a touch of the elusive and magical. Whether this stems from the city’s spiritual background or the ethereal beauty of the land, Puerto Vallarta is as captivating as it is entertaining. Situated between Sierra Madre and Bahia de Banderas, opportunities for land and water sports are endless here. Choose from a number of activities that are sure to be highlights of your trip, such as fishing, diving, windsurfing, hiking, playing golf or enjoying a hot air balloon ride. Modern in its own right, Puerto Vallarta’s art scene, nightlife, dining and hotels rival that of any other luxury destination by entwining authentic Mexican culture with effortless sophistication.
