Travel & Outdoors
A complete vacation destination, Puerto Vallarta has a bit of everything that adds up to a whole lot of fun. Beautiful beaches, excellent dining, accommodations for every budget, shopping galore and a wide variety of entertainment, activities and adventurous excursions have all made Puerto Vallarta one of Mexico's most popular resort towns.
But as those who share our passion for travel and adventure already know, once the travel bug bites it's almost impossible to contentedly remain only in one spot . . . no matter how wonderful. After all, why stick to one area — or even one country — when you can explore the entire world?
Travel can be a powerful force for tolerance and understanding, and at BanderasNews we want to share our never-ending passion for traveling to exotic lands and faraway places with you. Whether you are seeking an off-the-beaten-track destination around Puerto Vallarta, or want to learn more about some of the world's most intriguing places, we'll introduce you to some of the great destinations Mexico, and the world, have to offer.
