Puerto Vallarta is the place to discover mountains, forests and rock formations unfolding before some of Mexico's most gorgeous beaches. Nestled along the Pacific coast in Bahia de Banderas (Bay of Flags), Puerto Vallarta has all the necessary ingredients of an ideal vacation.
With luxury resorts along the shores of Puerto Vallarta, such as Dreams Villamagna and Secrets Vallarta Bay, one of your favorite options will surely be lounging under the sun as the Pacific lulls you into relaxation. But if you're aching to go out there and explore, there's an abundance of activities in this magical area!
Kick it all off with sailing in the sparkling blue waters, especially in the winter months when you can catch a glimpse of the friendly humpback whales basking in Vallarta's warm waters. When you're out in the ocean, take the plunge and snorkel or dive in the enthralling reef. Or you can completely immerse yourself in nature at the secluded Caletas Beach, Marietas Islands and Yelapa Beach, all three accessible mainly by boat.
If you'd rather stay on land, you can learn about the vast culture and history of the region in the museums. You can also take an unforgettable city tour of nearby towns nestled in the rolling Sierra Madre Mountains. While you're atop this incredible mountain range, enjoy more excitement by hiking, horseback riding and zip lining. And for more adrenaline, ride an all-terrain vehicle and power through this dynamic landscape.
Puerto Vallarta visitors can also learn about the creation of tequila on one of their outings, and even drink it as they party it up at one of the city's upscale nightclubs. Whether you want to dance, relax by the sea, take thrilling adventures, or spend time in nature, Puerto Vallarta makes it all possible. Amstar can't wait to be your ground operator and local guide at this must-visit Pacific destination.
