Are you looking for a little fun in the sun? Than Mexicoâ€™s resort city of Puerto Vallarta is just the place you have been looking for. Located on the Mexican Riviera, Puerto Vallarta is a very popular travel getaway, and with beautiful weather and beaches, it has good reason to be.
When you think of Mexico, you probably think of Acapulco and Cancun, however you may be surprised to hear that Puerto Vallarta is the second largest beach resort in all of Mexico. Additionally, it has a much shorter flight than Cancun of Acapulco, usually with only one connecting flight. Unlike other resort beaches in Mexico, specifically Cancun, you will not find the typical spring break party goer in Puerto Vallarta. Instead you will have the time to appreciate the cityâ€™s historic district, complete with the charm of old Mexico. You can visit the zocolo, or city center, and marvel at the locals who set up their shops in the square. Besides the obvious tourist knick knacks, you will also find a large selection of handcrafted items, including hammocks, blankets, and jewelry.
Whilst there is so much to see and do in Puerto Vallarta, its beaches still provide as the main attraction. If you are looking for a beautiful, white sand beach vacation than look no further than Puerto Vallarta. Some suggestions for accommodation include the Villa Premier Hotel and Spa, the Marriot Casa Magna Puerto Vallarta, and the Plaza Fiesta Beach Club, all of which are the most popular resort which offer getaway packages.
