Night Life


What's There To Do??


Puerto Vallarta almost defies description as a resort.   Offering an extremely wide variety of attractions and entertainment options.  Puerto Vallarta has something special for everyone, regardless of your personal preferences. There are many cultural events and exhibits, exciting day trips to the jungle, relaxing days at the beach and countless romantic hideaways.  Immeasurable activities, both on and off the water that will keep you entertained, until it is sadly time to depart.  Night life abounds with many popular night clubs and an array of quality restaurants to please even the most discriminating palette.  Puerto Vallarta is yours to savor and is, without a doubt, one of the friendliest and cleanest beach resorts in all of Mexico.

This beautiful city by the bay has a population of over 300,000 friendly residents and covers more than 1,200 square kilometers.  This is a city with modern infrastructure and conveniences that has somehow managed to maintain its unique Old Mexico charm, unlike so many of the other more glitzy resorts.  In many any areas of Puerto Vallarta you will feel like you are taking a step back in time.  A step back to a much simpler time, donkeys are still used for delivery in many parts of this unique city. Many of the crafts available here are made by local Indians who have been producing their wares using the same methods for hundreds of years.

A modern marina and cruise ship port attract visitors on ships and yachts from all over the world. The city's clean, friendly atmosphere, unique Old Mexico ambiance and incredibly diverse shopping possibilities attract International and Mexican tourists in droves.  These unique attractions lure many of these visitors to return over and over again.  Many of these tourists end up becoming full time residents or retiring in Puerto Vallarta.

Puerto Vallarta enjoys over 300 sunny days a year with temperatures averaging right around 83 degrees. Many visitors do not realize that Puerto Vallarta is situated on the same latitude as Hawaii and enjoys a similar sunny and tropical climate.  English is widely spoken, especially in the downtown shopping and dining areas.

Because Puerto Vallarta lies on Bahia Banderas, the second largest natural bay in North America and has over 100 miles of coast line, it is a haven for anyone who enjoys any type of beach activity, from whale watching to parasailing.   Bungee jumping over the Pacific, windsurfing, snorkeling, scuba diving, jet skiing or fishing are yours for the asking. The surf, at most beaches is normally very calm and safe for swimming year around.

Distinctly different beach zones with more than forty individual beaches mark Puerto Vallarta as one of the favorite destinations for the true beach lover. The first zone is north of Puerto Vallarta. Playa de Oro and the Marina district are here.  The Playa de Oro is a wide, sandy beach with a few rocky areas interspersed. It is also very popular with guests and locals alike, because of its water sports.  Even further north, the beaches of Banderas Bay are pristine and quiet as they reach up toward Punta de Mita.   If you're into surfing, these northern beaches, which are subject to strong surf, perfect for catching a wave, the best windsurfing also takes place in this area.

Puerto Vallarta's most popular beach, Playa de los Muertos, is located just south of the malecon and the River Cuale.  This beach is surrounded by the neighborhood of Olas Altas (Old Town or Zona Romantica), with it's indescribable variety of restaurants and shops.   It is lined with beachfront hotels and restaurants and is usually bustling with activity, sun worshipers by day, the dining and nightlife crowd after dark. The beachfront bars and restaurants in this area are a great place to catch one of the incredible Vallarta sunsets. 

South of town, you'll find numerous small coves and beaches.  Playa de Mismaloya used to be a quiet, fairly remote cove, it is still fairly remote and remains a beautiful beach in spite of development and is a great place to relax on the beach for a day.  Boca de Tomatlan, the last beach that is accessible by road is more primitive with several small seafood restaurants and taco stands.  It is a great swimming beach, very quiet and peaceful.  You can hire local pangas here to take you to Yepala, Las Animas or Quimixto.

Destiladeras and Los Venaderos are two of the more enjoyable beaches in the northern area.   Snorkeling and also wind surfing (under the right conditions) are also great at the Las Marietas Islands , which have been preserved by the Mexican government as a bird sanctuary.  These islands are accessible by boats which can be rented on most of the northern beaches.
