Have the better of two worlds in Puerto Vallarta
After choosing your luxury villa, condo or hotel, you probably cannot wait to lounge by the pool or take leisurely walks on the beach. Take the opportunity to also explore the city. Sample the ancient side of the city with its red-roofed buildings. Go out and enjoy the spectacular views of the Bandera Bay and the Sierra Madre Mountains.
The best way to enjoy Puerto Vallarta is to plan an itinerary with a local travel agent. You can go snorkeling, surfing, explore local markets for Mexican souvenirs, and sample local cuisine. Get a coffee at an outdoor café; visit the Puerto Vallarta fish market and the taco stands all around Puerto Vallarta.
You can get some great shopping done on the Malecon, which is the main tourist shopping area in Puerto Vallarta. Here, you get authentic Mexican tapestry. Puerto Vallarta has a large number of malls, locally known as Plazas, for a Western shopping style. Supermarkets and drug stores are also widely available so that your luxury retreat will be completely comfortable and convenient.
The Marieta luxury tours
Luxury retreats in Puerto Vallarta cannot be complete without a tour to Las Islas Marietas or The Marieta Islands. The island is popular for its pristine hidden beaches, a wide array of bird species and other marine life. The island is especially popular for the blue-footed booby, a bird with a unique sound and aqua blue feet.
A guided luxury tour of the Marieta Islands includes walking on the beautiful beaches, swimming in the azure blue waters, snorkeling, SUP boarding and visiting the sea caves.
You will hire a boat for a guided tour to the island. The boats are luxurious and hence comfortable. The tour is all inclusive of food, drinks, snorkel gear, and SUP boards. The cruise to the islands is utterly relaxing as you move across the tranquil waters of the Bandera Bay.
The best time to visit Puerto Vallarta
To enjoy the sunny weather and by far the best luxury retreats in Puerto Vallarta, make a point to visit between January and June. Whale watching is one of the greatest experiences to look forward to. In January, February, and March, you can get a glimpse of the Humpback whales. The whales breed in the shallow areas of the Bandera bay and birth their calves in the winter.
July to October is a less friendly time to visit Puerto Vallarta. The weather is humid, often accompanied by rain.
