Puerto Vallarta continues to consolidate itself as one of the leading beach destinations in Mexico for hosting international sporting events, in addition to its beautiful beaches, exceptional climate with 360 days of sunshine a year, an always lively nightlife and a wide variety of things to do.

During the first four months of 2024, domestic travelers and international visitors can enjoy a full schedule of exciting tournaments and championships that will undoubtedly complement their visit to Jalisco's premier sun and beach destination.

Here are the 5 major Puerto Vallarta sporting events everyone's talking about.  They are not to be missed!


· When: February 19-25, 2024.

· Where: Parque Parota Tennis Courts, in the heart of Puerto Vallarta's North Hotel Zone.

· Why to Attend: The Mexico Series Puerto Vallarta WTA 125 tournament will feature more than 30 of the best players in international women's tennis.  The participation of the Mexican tennis player Renata Zarazua, the first national player to enter the top 100 of the world rankings in more than two decades, stands out.  Other players to keep an eye on are: American Amanda Anisimova, the first wild card for the main draw of the tournament after her surprising participation in the Australian Open 2024; Colombian Emiliana Arango, considered a future star of women's tennis and, of course, the winner of the Guadalajara Open, Maria Sakkari.

· We Love: The Mexico Series Puerto Vallarta WTA 125 is the first edition of a WTA tournament to be held in the Friendliest City in the World.  By visiting the immaculate courts of Parque Parota, you'll have the opportunity to watch up to 50 matches featuring world champions competing for a $125,000 USD prize and the crucial opportunity to score points for their international rankings starting in Mexico.

· We Love: The always sunny shores of Puerto Vallarta and Banderas Bay become a colorful spectacle of skill, adrenaline and speed as the first boats arrive, completing a challenging 1,000-mile journey offshore from San Diego, California.  Head to your favorite beach club or Puerto Vallartabeach, get your binoculars and don't miss this premier international competition that attracts the best professional sailors.  The Velas Vallarta Hotel will host the awards ceremony for the Puerto Vallarta Race 2024.

· We Love: The broad involvement of road and mountain biking enthusiasts, both novice and experienced.  In previous editions, the Ruta Turística Puerto Vallarta Route has attracted up to 500 cyclists from Mexico and abroad, all ready to challenge themselves along Puerto Vallarta's main boulevard to the city's northern beaches and back.  The raffle of a professional Trek bicycle deserves special mention.  It will be available to all participating cyclists.
