Puerto Vallarta

Trip Planner Mexico  /  Jalisco  /  Puerto Vallarta
Boasting a coastline made for perfectly framed photographs of romantic sunsets, Puerto Vallarta continuously ranks among the world's top tourist resorts. With palm-fringed mountains as a backdrop, a vacation in Puerto Vallarta appeals to millions of visitors looking to laze on dazzling beaches, munch on tasty dishes at trendy restaurants, browse countless little souvenir shops, and stroll the photogenic seafront promenade offering a slew of tourist-oriented activities. In addition to swimming and basking on sun-kissed sands, popular things to do in Puerto Vallarta include boat tours, horseback rides, diving excursion, and day trips to the surrounding countryside, where you can find archaeological sites dating back to the period long before Columbus discovered the New World. Puerto Vallarta is in Jalisco. Plan my day in Mexico using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Where to stay in Puerto Vallarta

The appropriately named Hotel Zone, at the coastal fringe of the city center, serves as one of the most popular areas to stay, with equally good access to the beach and the amenities within the city. Private rentals are particularly popular, with the Hotel Zone and the equally vibrant hub of Emiliano Zapata to the south offering plenty of condominiums to complement the range of budget, mid-range, and luxury hotels. Many of the city's best gay-friendly accommodations are found at the southern fringe of the old town.
