Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta is a wonderful place that amazes and inspires everyday: a beautiful blue sky that frames a spectacular moon as well as a Sun of an incredible orange. A tempered and generous sea that relaxes, but also imposes, and sunsets that deserve a pause in our day, and take our breath away.

A city in the middle of the mountain, the sea, the Sun and the sand, whose inhabitants are kind by nature and eager to serve the visitors. Its geographic location is enviable: a huge bay at the Pacific Ocean, with its blue waters of all blue tones on one side, and a mountain, with fresh temperatures, rivers, cascades and steep lands ready to be conquered on the other.

Downtown

Known as “the Heart of Puerto Vallarta” and declared as cultural heritage by the State of Jalisco, Puerto Vallarta’s Downtown is located between the imponent Malecon and the most emblematic constructions that shape the area. All the way along the Malecon it is possible to find sculptures, artistic manifestations, Huichol art, the worldwide famous Arcos, and spectacular views of Bahia de Banderas.

Puerto Vallarta’s Downtown is shaped by the Kiosk, meeting point for festivities and lots of activities for locals and visitors; the City Hall, located at the northern side; and the Parrish of Our Lady of Guadalupe, a neoclassic building located half a block, and whose crown and tower have become an icon of Puerto Vallarta. It is possible to observe this spectacular building from almost every point of the city.
