The picturesque “pueblo” of Puerto Vallarta has its own architectural style. Its cobblestone streets and adobe houses topped with red roofs highlight the elegance of the Mexican colonial style.
Famous for its sunsets, Puerto Vallarta is located in a fertile region rich in plants and marine life. The presence of species such as dolphins, turtles and humpback whales adds to the rest of its natural attractions. In addition, lovers of adventure will find endless options in ecotourism activities such, as diving and kayaking.
