¡Viva La Vida! ¡Viva México!
Milla Väänänen from travel service company Aurinkomatkat shares four reasons to visit Puerto Vallarta.
1. Puerto Vallarta
For an authentic taste of real Mexico, head to the friendliest city in the country. The El Malecon boardwalk and local beach hotspot Los Muertos are definite must-sees as is Zona Romantica (the old town) with its beautiful floral bordered cobblestone streets.
2. Playa Conchas Chinas
This quiet and peaceful beach is located only a few kilometres from downtown Puerto Vallarta. But if you want to access a hidden gem of beach paradise, take a short boat trip from the Puerto Vallarta harbour to Playa Caballo. If you’re lucky, you may even spot a whale or two!
3. Local flavour
There’s more to do in Puerto Vallarta than hit the beach. Mexico is the perfect destination for avocado enthusiasts. The guacamole won’t disappoint; neither will the delicious tortillas, ceviche, and seafood.
Located north of Puerto Vallarta, this hippy-chic village is ideal for the aspiring surfer. Surfboard rentals are easily available and the waves are considered friendly enough for beginners. Those preferring dry land can hike the trails through the jungle. End a perfect day by admiring the mesmerising sunset.
