Puerto Vallarta beach

1. Beach

Beach bums, sun goddesses and fun-loving families in Puerto Vallarta have miles upon miles of golden beaches to choose from. The Bahía de Banderas, the sweeping 24-mile wide bay upon which Puerto Vallarta sits, provides picturesque beaches, isolated sandy spots reachable only by boat and colossal sandy stretches packed with tourists.

2. El Malecón

Lined with swaying palm trees and funky sculptures, Puerto Vallarta's seaside boardwalk is easily one of the city's most beloved assets. Be sure to take an evening stroll along with the rest of the city for an unobstructed and absolutely spectacular view of the sun setting over the shimmering bay.

3. Casa Kimberley

Casa Kimberley

Puerto Vallarta was thrust into the international spotlight back in the 1960's thanks to Elizabeth Taylor's steamy affair with Richard Burton, who was in town filming the movie The Night of the Iguana. Burton bought a home in downtown, bought the home across the street as a gift to Taylor and connected the two with an elegant pink bridge. Nowadays Casa Kimberley is part bed-and-breakfast and part homage to one of Hollywood's timeless super couples.

4. Weather

Situated along the same latitude as Hawaii, the two tropical destinations also share palm trees, pristine beaches and warm sunshine all year-round. In fact, the average annual temperature is 82ºF (28ºC), making every day in Puerto Vallarta a beach day. Learn more: Puerto Vallarta weather.
