Situated along Mexico’s Pacific coast, Puerto Vallarta is a resort town known for its beautiful beaches surrounded by the stunning Sierra Madre mountains. With both mountains and sea in view, there’s enticing sights as far as the eye can see.
Relax on the beach, explore the coves and reefs, and take a boat to see the bay at sunset. Walk along the Malecon Boardwalk, visit the city center and its opulent Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe church, and venture to the eastern tip of the Cuale River Island to take in the appealing art and culture of the city.
Puerto Vallarta’s extensive biodiversity is on display at the Vallarta Botanical Gardens–check out the Cactus Garden, Tropical Fruit Orchard, and the Conservatory of Orchids and Native Plants.
