Puerto Vallarta Mexico is one of the world's premier vacation destinations, renowned for its genuine traditional ambience situated on a huge bay of beautiful sandy beaches.

Puerto Vallarta isn't a 'developed resort' where it's easy to forget you're in a different country. This is REAL Mexico, complete with cobblestone streets, colonial architecture, beautiful weather, friendly people, and warm smiles.

Travel & Leisure magazine voted the Puerto Vallarta area as having the best beaches in Latin America, and according to Condé Nast Magazine, Puerto Vallarta Mexico is the "World's Friendliest International City".

With its traditional Mexican architecture and gold-sand beaches bordered by jungle-covered mountains, Puerto Vallarta is one of the loveliest spots on the globe. Vallarta maintains a small-town charm despite boasting lodging ranging from small and quaint hotels, to vacation rentals from budget to luxurious, to sophisticated 5-Star resorts, great restaurants, a thriving arts community, active nightlife, great deep-sea fishing, and a growing variety of eco-tourism attractions.

Puerto Vallarta combines original ethnic culture with today's modern resort amenities, reflected in an assortment of stimulating activities and convenient accommodations. Wedding parties, couples, and families come to this tourism hub to enjoy Puerto Vallarta's diverse vacation choices. Puerto Vallarta's geographical diversity is represented in its mountains, jungles, rivers, and waterfalls. And the weather is always GREAT, usually free of rain all winter long (and ALWAYS free of snow)!

As travel to Puerto Vallarta has grown, so has the region. Luckily it hasn't gotten particularly crowded, since we're situated on the huge Banderas Bay ('Bay of Flags'), one of the Pacific Ocean's largest natural bays. Thus, "Vallarta" now comprises the entire coast of the bay (spanning parts of two states) from Punta Mita at the Northern tip, to Nuevo Vallarta in Nayarit State, to the actual City of Puerto Vallarta in Jalisco State, and to Mismaloya and beyond to the South.. Tens of thousands of Americans and Canadians invest in Puerto Vallarta Real Estate to make the area their part- or full-time homes.

The Mexican Peso is currently at an excellent exchange rate, so while the prices here haven't gone up to match the exchange, Vallarta is an even better value. A high exchange rate is almost like getting free money! And it's easy to travel here..."PV" now boasts non-stop flights from over 20 cities in the United States and Canada, and easy connections from virtually anywhere on the planet, so it's easy to choose Puerto Vallarta for YOUR next vacation! Get on your computer, get online, find your favorite internet travel agency, and come down to enjoy a little paradise!

NEWS: TAX-FREE HAVEN: Mexico's congress passed a tourism ministry-backed law introducing tax-free shopping for international tourists.

Spearheaded by Mexico's Secretary of Tourism Rodolfo Elizondo Torres, the law -- which passed with little opposition -- is designed to increase competition in tourism and foster private investments. It grants foreign visitors full refunds of the retail tax on purchases of at least 1,200 pesos (about $110), provided receipts are presented upon departure to airport or seaport customs officials.

Passport Alert! ALL persons, including U.S. citizens, traveling between the U.S. and Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and Bermuda by land or sea, are required to present a valid passport or other documents as determined by the Department of Homeland Security.
