                                Vallarta-Nayarit is a paradise!  If you are planning a visit, don’t miss the best of what the region has to offer.  

In this beautiful harbor there are many sights to see. The following points can help you plan out the perfect vacation agenda for experiencing the best of Vallarta-Nayarit in a week.

Downtown Puerto Vallarta

No matter when you visit Puerto Vallarta’s historic centro, this is the most picturesque part of the area. You can stroll along the boardwalk, try the local foods and even buy souvenirs. At night the bars and clubs create an amazing party ambiance.

The Best Beaches

Vallarta-Nayarit stretches along Banderas Bay, meaning it has beautiful beaches all around. Two are certified with the Blue Flag, assuring their cleanliness and safety: Nuevo Vallarta and Palmares.

Touring by Boat

A boat tour is a definite must. There are tours available during the day and at night, for adults or the entire family. A tour by boat can take you to various places and the different tours offer a range of activities. Be sure to research your options and choose the best one for you and your group. Your Concierge can help advise you.

Rivers and Waterfalls

This is a side to Vallarta-Nayarit that very few visitors are aware of. If you like nature, seeing rivers and waterfalls is an excellent choice. I recommend visiting the Palo Maria cascade- it’s gorgeous! You’ll need comfortable clothes, as you’ll be walking a considerable distance. You can also go to El Eden, one of the most significant places in Puerto Vallarta – here they recorded the film Predator –some parts of the set are even still there.

Picturesque Villages

Vallarta-Nayarit also has picturesque towns to visit. A visit to a place like Mismaloya, Quimixto Boca de Tomatlán, Sayulita, Bucerias or Punta de Mita will allow you to learn more about the region; you’ll see crafts, artwork, local foods and more. Plus, they are right on the beach.
