Known for its many landmarks and rich history, Puerto Vallarta has become a hub of tourist activity. The beach and water alone attract many visitors all year long, however Bella Travel Network wants travelers to know that there is so much more to Puerto Vallarta.
Los Arcos National Marine Park - Arguably one of the most recognizable landmarks in Puerto Vallarta, the gorgeous arches are perfect for sunset photo ops and romantic picnic dinners. The arches also create an amphitheater. Along the Bahia Banderas (Banderas Bay), lie an array of sand sculptures, art pieces, street performers, and local vendors. Visitors can take a quiet walk along the oceanfront walkway and make stops along the way to enjoy the scenery.
Botanical Gardens of Vallarta - Located just a half hour south of the city, Bella Travel Network knows that these gardens will provide a delightful way to spend a couple of hours away from all of the hubbub of the city. Boasting a wide assortment of wild flowers and walking paths, the gardens offer colorful views and aromatic pleasures. Visitors will find the location not only relaxing but also quite romantic.
Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe - A trip to Puerto Vallarta would not be complete without a visit to the iconic landmark church. Beautifully constructed out of red brick, the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe marks an impressive figure. Mass is still held in this historical building and the harmonic bells ring regularly before each mass.
Lighthouse On Matamoros - Although no longer guiding boats in from the harbor, the lighthouse serves as the perfect place for a panoramic view of the city and the ocean below. Photographers love the view and the abundance of photography subjects. Visitors can spend some time and take in the beauty of the city while exploring the lighthouse. Originally built in 1932, the lighthouse was closed in 1978. It was remodeled in 2006 so that visitors could enter.
With so many free and interesting things to do in Puerto Vallarta, Bella Travel Network is confident the visitors will certainly find something exciting to do this summer.
