For 100 years, Puerto Vallarta has been a top vacation destination for travelers from all over the world.

In fact, the tropical city has been ranked as one of the favorite “Best Cities in the World” and “Top Small Cities Outside the US” in this year’s Conde Nast Traveler Reader’s Choice Awards.

The city is also known to be “The most romantic destination in Mexico.” From its beautiful, jaw-dropping landscape and tropical scenery to it’s diverse culture, appreciation for the arts, exquisite culinary taste and unique experiences, Puerto Vallarta has something for every traveler and every occasion.

Some of the top-rated activities include snorkeling at the Playa Los Muertos, looking for whales off the coast of Bahía de Banderas (Banderas Bay), sailing to the Islas Marietas National Park, enjoying beachside dining in Bucerías, sightseeing at the Los Arcos and El Malecón, visiting the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe or the Vallarta Botanical Gardens and shopping at Isla Río Cuale – just to name a few.

And if all of those attractions don’t convince you of the city’s beauty, know that Hollywood directors have been taking advantage of Puerto Vallarta’s exotic scenery for years – filming movies such as The Night of The Iguana, Predator, Le Magnifique Jacqueline Bisset & Jean-Paul Belmondo and more.

Now, the destination even attracts the industry’s top celebrities and people from all over the world in search for the perfect getaway.
