Puerto Vallarta is a popular tourist destination known for itspuerto vallarta scenery, vibrant culture, and beautiful beaches on the Pacific Ocean (the western coast of Mexico). There are a variety of outdoor activities such as scuba diving, deep-sea fishing, surfing, parasailing, and snorkeling.

In my opinion,  the best time to visit is between November and April when the weather is cooler and less rainy is the prime time. However, because of this reason, the winter months are the busiest so schedule your trip accordingly.

Puerto Vallarta’s famous boardwalk is lined with a fusion of modern and ancient architecture where you can visit many art galleries, bars, and restaurants, or explore the city’s historical center.

Puerto Vallarta tops other cities in Mexico because of the wide array of accommodations it offers.  There are options for any budget from expensive luxury hotels to budget-friendly hostels.  The city center also features choices of smaller boutique-style hotels.

A great city to experience Mexico’s vast culture in one place.  Visitors can attend live performances as well as observe traditional dance performances or enjoy tours of local art galleries and museums.

Its warm climate, friendly atmosphere, vibrant culture, food and beautiful beaches are unmatched.
