Nuevo Vallarta

We visited Puerto Vallarta and its sister city Nuevo Vallarta, situated on the Pacific Ocean's Bahia de Banderas (Bay of Flags). It is quite simply one of the most beautiful, cultured, luxurious vacation spots we have tried so far in all of Mexico. Here we found the ultimate fusion of traditional Mexican cullure.

Puerto Vallarta ("Viejo" or Old Town) gave us authentic experience of a colonial beach town in Mexico, its history, and culture. Viejo Vallarta still retains its old charm of cobble streets and pink-tiled rooftops.

The outdoor flea market in Viejo Vallarta, just off the Malecon Walkway, starts by the beach and wanders up through a pathway that takes you about three streets up. Here you can "chit chat" with stall vendors and haggle on the occasional piece of hand-made Mexican culture. The Malecón, the city's boardwalk, is one of the most popular areas in Puerto Vallarta. The Malecón is a mile-long walkway by the beach, covering about 16 blocks of shoreline and is a popular spot for photographers and art connoisseurs alike. Along the promenade are numerous landmarks and sculptures.

Highlights to other side trips and adventures:

  • One side trip we made was to the town of Tequila, to a liquor factory, where the agave plants that give us the liquor took its name are grown.
  • one of a kind Zip Lining adventure deep in the Sierra Madre jungles

An Outdoor Dinner By The Beach
an outdoor buffet dinner by the beach backed by an open bar and an awesome authentic Mexican entertainment, a Mariachi band, and ending the night with a loud bang (literally loud bang! -- fireworks). Great time!

Just north of the Puerto Vallarta International airport is the residential-resort development of Nuevo Vallarta, a project begun by the federal government over 10 years ago. Nuevo Vallarta consists of miles of beachfront. There are many homes that have been built along its windy canals and its beautiful beachfront. Elegant villas and estates line the channels, each with their own docking pier and manicured gardens of bougainvilleas, hibiscus and birds of paradise. Yet the ecology of Nuevo Vallarta is well preserved.
