Puerto Vallarta is known as Mexico's "Riviera", where people can have the best of both worlds -- whether you come here for a vacation, or for a longer period of time. It is at the center of - the "Bahia de Banderas", or "Bay of Flags". The bay has over 40 miles of coast and numreous beaches.
It is fast becoming one of the world's most popular travel destinations is because it offers a unique blend of traditional, "Old Mexico" charm mixed with the modern amenities of a cosmopolitan setting. There are cobblestone streets and old Spanish-colonial style white stucco houses with red clay tile roofs. The sound of church bells, roosters crowing, and the clatter of donkeys' hooves on the cobblestones continues to be an everyday occurrence, just as it was 150 years ago.
There are 345 days of sunshine each year, with average daytime reaching into the high 80's. At night, there is an onshore breeze from the Bay ,bringing cool air and cool night temperatures that make for pleasant sleeping conditions - without air conditioners.
The pages of this section are not a complete representation of what Puerto Vallarta has to offer. They are places that my friends or myself have been to both before, and after our stay in Yelapa. You will note the there are links to other sites pages for some of the more complicated areas to explain. I would like to thank all concerned for the use of the info.
