Puerto Vallarta continues to cement its status as a global tourist hotspot, securing the #4 position in TripAdvisor’s 2024 Travelers’ Choice Awards for ‘Top Destinations in Mexico’. The city’s unique blend of natural beauty, offering over 50 outdoor activities amid a stunning bay surrounded by mountains, contributes to its widespread appeal.
While the beaches are undoubtedly Puerto Vallarta’s crown jewels, the city’s allure extends far beyond the shore. Thrill-seekers can swim with dolphins in the wild, witness majestic whales mere meters away, or embark on a breathtaking dive to encounter giant manta rays. Nature lovers can explore Vallarta Botanical Garden, the fourth most important in North America.
Beyond its natural allure, Puerto Vallarta caters to a diverse range of preferences and budgets, providing options for families, adults, wellness enthusiasts, and even pet lovers. Recognized as a leader in LGBTQ+ tourism in Mexico and Latin America, the city’s inclusive offerings have garnered international acclaim.
TripAdvisor’s Travelers’ Choice Awards highlight destinations with exceptional hotels, restaurants, and attractions, with less than 1% of their 8 million listings receiving this prestigious recognition. Puerto Vallarta’s achievement is a testament to the high volume of positive reviews and opinions from the global travel community over the past 12 months.
The city’s famed Malecón, a bustling waterfront promenade, clinched the #3 spot on TripAdvisor’s ‘Top Attractions’ list for Mexico in 2024. Reviews praised it as the perfect starting point for vacations, with recommendations for leisurely walks, tequila tasting, and shopping.
Luis Villaseñor, Director of the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Promotion Trust, expressed confidence in the city’s appeal, citing its cultural richness, diverse gastronomy, and unique experiences, such as visiting Mexico’s smallest beach and participating in Guinness World Record events.
Buoyed by this recognition, Puerto Vallarta aims to ascend to the top spot in Mexico in 2024. The Puerto Vallarta Tourism Trust, in collaboration with the State Government, remains committed to promoting the city’s myriad attractions and ensuring it remains a top choice for millions of travelers seeking unparalleled experiences.
