If you’re looking for beautiful beaches and resort towns with plenty of all-inclusive resorts and tourist attractions, Mexico can be a great place to travel. The most talked about resort towns are Cancun and Cozumel, which lie in the county’s eastern-most state of Quintana Roo. Equally talked about nowadays is Cabo San Lucas, which is in the country’s western state of Baja California Sur. These towns get all of the talk when it comes to American tourist travel to Mexico, but one lesser-known gem lies on Mexico’s Pacific Coast, and it’s called Puerto Vallarta.
Like all of the previously mentioned Mexican resort towns, travel to Puerto Vallarta is quite easy, with Southwest Airlines offering direct flights to Puerto Vallarta from several major US airports. When it comes to all-inclusive resorts, Puerto Vallarta has plenty to choose from, with almost a dozen in the city’s “Hotel Zone” alone, and many others sprinkled around and outside the city. South of the city, on a winding highway on the way to the sleepy town of Mismaloya lies one of these resorts that’s Puerto Vallarta’s hidden gem, called the Garza Blanca Preserve Resort and Spa. From the tower suites with spectacular city and mountain views, to the beachfront honeymoon suites with panoramic glass doors that open your room up to the Pacific Ocean, each room at Garza Blanca has its own unique charm. Add to that their high end and casual restaurant options, and you have the perfect romantic or family getaway.
Not only do the city’s beaches and accommodations impress, but Puerto Vallarta also has plenty of attractions and activities for honeymooners and families alike. The Malecon Boardwalk stretches along Puerto Vallarta’s coastline and houses the city’s nightlife and many restaurants as well. Explore the quaint shops and restaurants of Old Vallarta and the Zona Romantica to get a flavor for the classical parts of the city. To learn more about Puerto Vallarta’s history be sure to visit The Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe and the square it’s surrounded by. With top notch beaches, resorts and attractions, there’s no reason why Puerto Vallarta shouldn’t be your next vacation destination!
