Puerto Vallarta is a mystic city that harbors tradition in its plazas, in its streets, in its people - a city that expresses the color of its culture and natural beauty at every turn.
Located on the Pacific Coast of Mexico, where Jalisco and Nayarit meet, Puerto Vallarta lays in the heart of Banderas Bay and offers the best of two worlds: tradition and vanguard, making Vallarta a window to the world.
Puerto Vallarta has received many global accolades that are a testament to the uniqueness and warmth of the city. The destination has been voted the friendliest city in the world by Condé Nast Magazine (2003) the best place to retire globally by The American Association of Retired Persons (2010) and the best Mexican Vacation Destination by USNews.com (2010), beating out Cancún and Los Cabos for the top prize.
