Puerto Vallarta vacations

Located in the Marina area of Puerto Vallarta, closet to downtown and the city’s beautiful Malecón, this beachfront resort beckons you to a paradise where peacocks, iguanas and exotic birds coexist with guests, in a landscape of incomparable tropical gardens, extensive green areas and bubbling fish ponds.

Convenient in all senses of the word, it offers All Inclusive services for those who prefer to travel worry-free as they explore the marvels of the port and its surrounding areas. There are various suite options, to comfortably accommodate large and small families.

The kindness and friendliness that characterizes the Mexican people, and particularly the people of Puerto Vallarta, is felt in every aspect of this resort. It is also an environmentally-conscious establishment. Every year gulf sea turtles swim up to the beach to lay their eggs and the resort, along with a local conservation organization, makes sure to protect their nesting zone; guests can even help take the baby turtles back to the ocean.

Actions such as these earn the resort an ecological certificate each year from Earth Check, and it is consistently recognized with top ratings on TripAdvisor for service.

The resort has two excellent restaurants: La Ribera, a casual ocean-front restaurant with different international cuisine each day, served buffet-style or a la carte, and Andrea, where the gourmet styles of Italy, France and of course Mexico can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch and dinner. 24-hour suite service is another ingredient of the All Inclusive service.

The Kids Club is the ideal place for creativity, freedom and fun. Kids are cared for by experts, who lead them in arts and crafts, outdoor sports, painting and table games while parents enjoy a Spa treatment by the sea or take a romantic walk on the beach to take in the beautiful tropical sunsets.

The resort also organizes activities for parents and kids to get together, where kids are taught to give fun and relaxing massages to their moms and dads. For adults, yoga classes on the jetty are a truly inspiring experience.

Nights at Velas Vallarta are the perfect ending to a day full of adventure. Every night is something different, with themes such as Casino Night, karaoke, circus and even a traditional Mexican fiesta complete with Mariachi, dance, raffles, contests and delicious Mexican menu.
