About Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Hollywood discovered this little fishing village back in the 1960's, and since then luxury resorts and bougainvillea-covered villas have flourished in the delightful seaside climate. Yet hints of past tranquility remain: cobbled courtyards where the locals hold their markets, and superb sport-fishing just offshore.

Had the best time here! Las caletas was awesome. My girlfriend relaxed in a hammock and I snorkeled all over the place. The water was nice and clear, fish were abundant. Enjoyed the open air restaurant, the atmosphere was just what we were looking for! Only complaint, wished we could have spent much more time there. Highly suggest that excursion.


This port was my favorite of the 3 ports we visited. We were here late. We walked part of the town. There is a mall and a Walmart right by the port. We took a taxi to a Marriott resort where you pay 28 US and get same amount back in food or drinks. Very nice place with a huge pool. We stayed a few hours then took a taxi back to the boat changed then went to the shopping district. It was lots of fun. This place takes US dollars but change comes back in Pesos only. Know the exchange rate is 18 pesos oer dollar.


This was the highlight of the trip. We hired a taxi driver who charged us $40 to give us a tour of downtown. We really didnt know where to go or, what to do. I asked the driver "if you had a lazy day off what would you do? He took us to a small a town (I can't remember the name). In town we had a local fisherman give us a tour of the bay. Evidently Steven Spielberg has his home here, if this helps. We ended up on a small beach call Las Animas. You can arrove here by boat. OMG the food was amazing!!!!!! We ordered a dz oysters. They literally went to a boat, grabbed the days catch and served us.......I could have had another 3 dzs... amazing!!!
