The fulfillment that comes from living in one of the most magical places in the world is what those living in Vallarta transmit to all visitors. A big smile radiating happiness is written on their faces. It is worth visiting Puerto Vallarta if only to feel and breathe in some of this joy.
This magic captured from so many red sunsets has enticed nationals as well as foreigners from all over the world to make this magical bay their home. This chemistry imbues Puerto Vallarta with a creative, open and fulfilled multi-culture.
Lush fig trees, colorful “papelillo trees” (paper bark trees), seasoned wild fig trees mysteriously anchored to the rocks with their foliage filled-treetops reaching towards the sky. Waves crashing against the crags spraying the unruffled iguanas posing placidly.
Every fold of the mountain heading south from Puerto Vallarta offers us almost deserted beaches of light colored sand and crystal blue water.
Sea-Mountain-Warm climate, makes up the perfect formula to meld with this magical place.
Beauty lies within distinctive features. Vallarta has learned how to conserve its essence of long ago: a fishing town serving as a window to the sea for the miners in its mountains. There are few places that can even boast about the beauty of their roofs and Puerto Vallarta can do just that.
Cobblestone streets, red tile roofs, white-washed walls, bougainvilleas peeking out from a balcony, steep and winding streets speak to us of the beauty of imperfection, and above all, the deep rooted tradition of this town.
Fresh products, passion, creativity, multiculturalism, tradition, are all elements imbued in each of the dishes you are going to try.
It is not surprising to find banana bread served with frozen yogurt, a touch of pink peppercorns, raspberries and other berries; or a coconut breaded giant blue shrimp with mango sauce. Far from just following a global tendency, chefs of different nationalities living in Puerto Vallarta, have personalized the creations with the spirit, technique and flavors of their homeland, making use of the fresh products of this region.
Puerto Vallarta is a delight to the palate.
From time immemorial, beautiful surroundings have been a magical ingredient for love. Nymphs inhabited springs, wild fields and flower-filled meadows. It would seem that the beauty of the bay, framed by mountains, bathed by a sea breeze under a dome lit up by the sunset could be a favorite place for the mythical creatures, who instill in us, mortals, the impulse to love.
There are no better surroundings to fall in love again, to propose, or to return to over and over, thus keeping the fire of love alive. Puerto Vallarta provides the perfect setting for walking hand in hand, as we take in the town’s picturesque corners, choosing a place for a candle light dinner under the stars, where we can lovingly gaze into each other’s eyes.
Just as trees blossom in fertile soil, so does art; walking along the Malecon, taking in the magnificent sculptures, liberates the spirit and speaks to us of civilization. You will encounter an art gallery on almost every block where you can see original paintings and sculptures.
Along with art, this Bay also vibrates with music and dance; jazz, blues, flamenco dance, Mexican folkloric music and dance.
The spirit soars in Puerto Vallarta.
