Accommodation Price Comparison




Mexico is situated in the northern region of the American continent linking the Gulf of Mexico on the east and the Pacific Ocean on the west. It is encircled by the United States on the north and by Guatemala and Belize on the south and is divided into six tourist regions. These regions are Northern Mexico, Central Mexico, Southern Mexico, The Yucatan Peninsula, The Pacific Coast and The Baja California Peninsula.
 
Puerto Vallarta lies along Banderas Bay, the second largest bay in the Western Hemisphere. It is located 352 kilometers from Guadalajara, the state capital of Jalisco, and it is nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Madre mountain range. The region has many forests, rivers and waterfalls, with an average temperature of 27 degree Celsius.
 
Of its many attractions, Playa Mismaloya is a popular celebrity beach hangout. The impressive rock formations of Los Arcos emerge from the bay's crystalline waters, which are great for diving and discovering incredible underwater mountains and steeps. The city hall has murals painted by Manuel Lepe, and the Malecon is adorned with romantic bronze sculptures. The streets of downtown offer shops and galleries that sell local paintings and sculptures of local artists. The city, known for its top-notch services, also has golf courses, boutiques and a marina, comprising of sail boats and yachts. In Puerto Vallarta one can enjoy the services of the Boutique and Gran Turismo hotels, the exquisite regional cuisine of Jalisco and the terraces of open-air restaurants.
 
Sportfishing is just one of many activities one can do during your stay in Puerto Vallarta. Each year, during the month of November, the International Sailfish Fishing Tournament takes place. Because of that and so much more, Vallarta is the ideal place for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. Talpa Allende and Mascota are two towns which have played a pivotal role in the region’s history. Puerto Vallarta benefits from an international airport, where national flights arrive from Mexico City, Guanajuato and Manzanillo. Airlines offering service from other Latin American countries include Mexicana, Aeromexico, American Airlines, Delta, Continental and Alaska Airlines.

Puerto Vallarta can also be considered as the preeminent, historical and potential tourism destination that enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers to become one of the most visited places.
