Embark on a trip to Puerto Vallarta, the internationally-renowned tourist destination. The city of Vallarta lies in the state of Jalisco, 350 kilometres from the capital of Guadalajara. Vallarta, Mexico is an ancient village in the Bay of Banderas that has become a seaside resort over the years. This bay is also the second longest in the Americas!
The environment is very natural with rivers, much vegetation, and wonderful waterfalls. The average temperature in the region is 27°C, making it pleasant to stay in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico all year 'round.
There are many points of interest, starting with Our Lady of Guadalupe Cathedral, which bears the name given to the Virgin Mary who appeared to a Mexican native here in 1531. Stroll along the Malecon, a boardwalk along which you can appreciate amazing sculptures. Do a little shopping in the boutiques and watch the magnificent sunsets over the bay.
From your hotel in Puerto Vallarta, visit the island of Rio Cuala where you can sample local dishes in good restaurants and visit the cultural centre and the impressive Archaeological Museum. To taste the local traditions and way of life, go to the municipal market and immerse yourself in the very dynamic atmosphere along with the locals.
This region, with its beaches and restaurants, is the perfect romantic setting. The area of the Marina is also popular thanks to its relaxing atmosphere.
