Once a mining town, today Puerto Vallarta is considered to be one of the most romantic destinations in Mexico.

And with a beautiful Playa Hotels & Resorts property at your beck and call, your experience at Puerto Vallarta is off to a great start.

Visitors will find an amazing range of biodiversity from tropical birds to migrating whales, as well as a vibrant art scene filled with galleries, festivals and numerous public art displays. Whether you are there on your honeymoon or having an unforgettable girls’ weekend, Puerto Vallarta offers something for everyone.

Vallarta Botanical Gardens: The Jardines Botánicos de Vallarta are on the city outskirts, 30 miles to the south. Visitors can get there by taxi, of course, or catch the El Tuito bus from the corner of Carranza and Aguacate. Once there, be prepared to spend several hours wandering through the gardens with a variety of wild flowers and insects.

Romantic Zone: It’s said this part of town has some of the city’s best restaurants, so head to the Zona Romantica for a romantic meal along Olas Atlas. Or, spend the day enjoying this laid-back neighborhood wandering its shops and cafes.

Playa los Muertos: Dead Man’s Beach draws the crowds, and for good reason thanks to ample opportunities to windsurf and jet ski, and, of course, sunbathe and splash in the waves.  Playa Los Muertos is also home to Blue Chair, the most popular gay beach in the city. Those so inclined can practice their serve-set-spikes with a beach volleyball match, and when hunger pangs strike, there are numerous restaurants and bars from which to choose.
