Rich Mexican Heritage With a Side of Stunningly Beautiful
Bahia de Banderas (Banderas Bay) enjoys a favored location on Mexico’s west coast. Backed by rugged mountains and facing the brilliant waters of the Pacific, its warm and protected climate makes it a haven of natural beauty and a first choice for an exotic vacation that also includes the best of world class amenities and entertainment. Star attraction is the historic town of Puerto Vallarta in the central section of the bay, while the shore areas to the north and south of it are quieter, with smaller villages more in the local style as well as some larger harbor towns, hotels with full facilities and a number of imposing private villas in their own secluded settings overlooking the ocean.
All along the 24 miles of the bay are superb beaches and endless opportunities for water sports, fishing, diving, snorkeling, sailing and even watching the whales that come to spend the winter in these warm waters. The town of Puerto Vallarta offers a magic mix of attractions that has made it Conde Nast Traveler Magazine’s “Favorite Destination” for 5 years in a row.
While its modern amenities have grown abundantly in recent decades, its historic center still honors its rich Mexican heritage with cobblestone streets, white stucco buildings crowned by flower-covered balconies and its iconic church tower, keeping a small-town charm and adding a cosmopolitan flair. Its vibrant art scene is reflected in the wealth of galleries, public sculptures and cultural festivals on offer throughout the year, along with a whole range of sporting events.
Yet the best moments of your vacation may well be those idle hours where you can truly relax, dipping into the crystal clear waters, soaking up the sun on a pristine beach or watching the spectacular sunsets from a villa terrace, amid the rich colors, the haunting sounds and the enticing aromas of this tropical paradise.
