Sun, sea, sand, and adventure

One of Mexico's most stylish destinations, the city of Puerto Vallarta mixes cosmopolitan cool and Mexican warmth. We love strolling along the bustling waterfront malecón, an esplanade lined with street artists, sculptures and fountains. Stop at the Los Archos amphitheatre for live music, dip in and out of the eclectic shops on Vallarta's cobbled side streets, then unwind with dinner and cocktails overlooking the yacht-filled marina.

Highlights of Puerto Vallarta

Arts and Culture

Puerto Vallarta has a thriving arts scene, second only to Mexico's capital. The city is home to everything from traditional indigenous art and crafts to contemporary Mexican works by national and local artists. Join the Puerto Vallarta Art Walk (October to April) for a tour of the best galleries.

Evening Flavour

Every good night out starts with dinner, and Puerto Vallarta's restaurant scene is among the best in Mexico. You will find succulent seafood, creative Mexican cuisine and flavourful international dishes on the menu, in restaurants ranging from glamorous to low-key. After dark, head to the malecón for fashionable clubs, salsa joints and chilled-out bars. Vallarta is refreshingly gay-friendly too, so there's something for everyone.

San Sebastian

This remote enclave deep in the Sierre Madre Mountains is a popular day trip from Puerto Vallarta. Once a gold and silver mining town, today San Sebastian feels like an untouched glimpse into colonial Mexico. Go for the breathtaking views, locally-grown coffee, charming cobblestoned plaza and 18th century haciendas.

Jungle Canopy Tours

If you're brave enough to zip line through the jungle 100 metres above the ground, there are several canopy tours around Puerto Vallarta. Perhaps the most popular is Los Veranos, an exhilarating two-mile course above the Orquideas River. Not for the faint-hearted, the 14 zip lines include a double line where you can race each other at speeds of over 30 miles per hour.

Whale Watching

Every year from December to March, humpback whales come to Banderas Bay to mate and give birth. Take a trip (by boat or even light aircraft) to encounter these gentle giants in their natural habitat. The sight of these magnificent creatures tail-slapping or breaching the water's surface will stay with you forever.

Rainy Season

Dry Season

Between November and June Puerto Vallarta is hot and sunny with virtually no rain. With such sunny conditions the weather is perfect for sunbathing and the waters along the coast are warm, making Puerto Vallarta perfect for swimming and snorkelling. 

Our Favourite Season

Puerto Vallarta’s consistently warm temperatures make the city pleasant to visit throughout the year, although our favourite months fall between April and June. This is when the skies are bluest and the city isn’t as crowded with tourists as during high season. 

Rainy Season

You will see rain and high humidity from July to September or October, with most rain falling in September. Fortunately, most rain falls intermittently, and most often at night, leaving much of the day sunny with blue skies.
