Puerto Vallarta & Riviera Nayarit

Mexico’s Pacific Coast is home to two stunning destinations that make one great getaway.

Defined by charming beaches and embraced by the Sierra Madre Mountains, Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit offer a glimpse of authentic Mexico.

A Perfect Tropical Climate
With an annual average temperature of 77⁰ F, Puerto Vallarta, in the state of Jalisco, and Riviera Nayarit, in the state of Nayarit, are a vacationer’s dream. With more than 330 days of uninterrupted sunshine each year, Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit offer the perfect backdrop for Instagram-worthy photos.

A Natural Playground
Thanks to a thriving, diverse ecosystem, a real-life National Geographic experience awaits you. For awesome views of the city, enjoy a paved, uphill hike to Mirador El Cerro de La Cruz, located in the center of Puerto Vallarta. For amazing views from the Riviera Nayarit, take an exhilarating hike up Cerro del Mono, also known as “Monkey Mountain.” Or, visit the El Salado Estuary in Puerto Vallarta, which is a protected natural area with hundreds of bird species!

Incredible Paradise-Like Beaches
Beaches along Mexico’s Pacific Coast never disappoint. Enjoy an amazing excursion to the Majahuitas or Yelapa Beach in Puerto Vallarta, which is full of restaurants, bars and activities. Relax on Riviera Nayarit’s untouched beaches that are found near the serene towns of Lo de Marcos and Punta de Mita. The picture-postcard scenery and the perfect weather offer plenty of opportunities to make the most of your beach time.


Mexico’s Pacific Coast is perfect for snorkeling and scuba diving year-round. The warm waters and calm waves are inviting, and from December to February, you will encounter manta rays and dolphins in their natural habitat. Waters are the warmest and underwater visibility is the clearest from June to October.


The art scene is graced by many national and international artists, with plenty of galleries and art shows. For a unique dining experience, check out the Juan More Taco Food Tour where you get to shop at local markets for fresh produce and create your own dish. Enjoy breakfast at Mr. Cream Pancakes & Waffles in Marina Vallarta — a great walkable area. Be sure to visit Sayulita and take in the Bohemian vibe, eclectic shopping and variety of restaurants.
