Puerto Vallarta harbors tradition in its plazas, in its streets, in its people – a city that expresses the color of its culture and natural beauty at every turn.

Located on the Pacific Coast of Mexico, where Jalisco and Nayarit meet, Puerto Vallarta lays in the heart of Banderas Bay and offers the best of two worlds: tradition and vanguard, making Vallarta a window to the world. Puerto Vallarta has received many global accolades that are a testament to the uniqueness and warmth of the city.

The destination has been voted the friendliest city in the world by Condé Nast Magazine (2003),  the best place to retire globally by The American Association of Retired Persons (2010) and the Best Mexican Vacation Destination by USNews.com (2010), beating out Cancún and Los Cabos for the top prize.

City limits encompass 1,300 km2 of seaside and lush tropical land. The state of Nayarit borders the north, Cabo Corrientes and Talpa de Allende the south, San Sebastian and Mascotalay to the east, while the Pacific Ocean rounds out the west. Blessed by its location nestled between the Sierra Madre mountain range and the world’s seventh largest bay, Vallarta is only a 3 hour flight away from Los Angeles, Dallas, and just over 4 1/2 from Seattle, Vancouver, Calgary, Chicago, New York and Toronto.

This gorgeous Mexican beach resort destination has become home to several thousands of Americans and Canadian who have chosen it above many other beach destinations due to its proximity to major US and Canadian cities and commodities.

Puerto Vallarta is on the same latitude as Hawaii and enjoys nearly perfect weather. It is situated at the western most end of the State of Jalisco, on the coordinates of 20°27’00” to the 20°59’00” of the northern latitude, and 104°55’00” to the 105°33’00” western longitude, 2m above sea level.
