What do you know about Puerto Vallarta?
Puerto Vallarta is a popular beach resort destination on the Pacific Ocean’s Bahia de Banderas. American writers and artists first sought Puerto Vallarta as a retreat in the early 1950’s. In 1963 John Huston filmed The Night of the Iguana in a small town just south of Puerto Vallarta, really putting it on the map for American travelers.
Today Puerto Vallarta is a thriving city, profiting well from international tourists. Its beauty can not be underestimated. Puerto Vallarta’s diverse topography allows for a variety of activities: scuba-diving, zip-lining, horseback riding, hiking, rafting, or simply relaxing on the beach.
Dining in Puerto Vallarta
Where should you eat? Just about anywhere. El Malecon boardwalk is a wonderful place to start and a must-see for visitors. Restaurants sit should to shoulder and line this colorful boardwalk overlooking the beauty of the Ocean.
