Puerto Vallarta

Boasting a coastline made for perfectly framed photographs of romantic sunsets, Puerto Vallarta continuously ranks among the world's top tourist resorts.
Get out of town with these interesting Puerto Vallarta side-trips: Vallarta Botanical Gardens (in Cabo Corrientes), Nuevo Vallarta Beach (in Nuevo Vallarta) and Punta Mita Golf Course (in Punta de Mita). And it doesn't end there: fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, step off the mainland to explore Marietas Islands, add some adventure to your tour with a kayaking and canoeing tour, and get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour.
