Puerto Vallarta Holidays
Puerto Vallarta is a popular Mexican resort, located on the country’s Pacific coast. It’s a great place to try traditional Mexican cuisine, or have a go at some thrilling water sports. You’ll find plenty of family-friendly attractions here, while the more intrepid explorers might like to take a guided tour into the jungle!
Beautiful Puerto Vallarta holidays
There are a number of beautiful landmarks, which are well worth a visit during any holiday to Puerto Vallarta. One of the more famous of these is the Parish Church of Our Lady of Guadaloupe. Located in the city centre, this majestic church boasts ornate architecture, and a fascinating history.
If you’re looking for a beach during your holiday in Puerto Vallarta, then a good place to head would be the beautiful, secluded sands at Playa Conchas Chinas. Translating as ‘Chinese Shells Beach’, this idyllic setting provides some great spots to sunbathe, as well as warm, crystal clear waters. It’s a great spot for families, as the gently shelving seabed means that the waters remain shallow for some way out to sea.
You’ll also find an impressive range of water sports on offer in the area, including some high-octane activities such as windsurfing, paragliding, jet skiing and banana boats. Alternatively, hire out scuba gear, and you’ll be able to explore an entirely different side to Puerto Vallarta. Deep beneath the waters of the Pacific, you will have the chance to explore dazzling coral reefs, and admire the colourful marine life.
Make sure you try out the local cuisine during your holiday in Puerto Vallarta! In the restaurants and tavernas here you’ll be able to enjoy a wide range of Mexican standards, as well as some regional specialities. Grilled Marlin is a particular favourite, as well as Ceviche – a mixture of raw seafood, prepared with lime juice, onions and jalapeño chillies. Other places serve popular snacks such as tortilla chips, burritos and enchiladas.
The city itself boasts some terrific cultural attractions, including a number of beautiful public monuments. Take a trip to the Cuale Archaeological Museum to delve into the local history, or head to the Mercado Isle Cuale market, to pick up a unique souvenir from your holiday in Puerto Vallarta.
