Top Attractions in Puerto Vallarta Mexico

If you are planning to visit the beautiful city of Puerto Vallarta Mexico, read this article to learn about some of the top attractions in this fascinating and diverse vacation destination.

El Malecón

El Malecón is a pedestrian friendly walkway that is perfect for a leisurely stroll, especially as the sun is setting in the evening. The promenade begins near the Hotel Rosita and is lined with sculptures, shops, restaurants, bars, lounges, and nightclubs before ending beside the Plaza de Armas.

Banderas Bay

Banderas Bay is likely the focal point of everyone’s stay in Puerto Vallarta, simply because it can be seen from many different locations. A person can relax on the beach, swim in the bright blue waters or party in one of the nightclubs while enjoying excellent views of the magnificent bay.

Los Arcos

The Los Arcos arches are one of the most iconic and recognizable landmarks in all of Puerto Vallarta. They are located in Plaza Morelos which is an oceanfront square in Puerto Vallarta’s southern end.


Bucerías is a small fishing village that is quickly becoming a popular day trip for Puerto Vallarta visitors. The village is off the beaten path and is less touristy than other areas of the region. People can spend the entire day fishing, swimming, or visiting the local art galleries and in between all that, they can dine beachside and eat lots of delicious local cuisine.

Playa Borrego

Playa Borrego is a popular beach approximately one half a mile south of town and many people walk or ride a bike there. Once at the beach, everyone can peruse the seashells and stones that lie on the white sand. The waves in the water can get very strong, so it is recommended that people use caution when venturing out too far, but it is perfect for surfers.

Playa Palmares

Playa Palmares is another popular beach approximately three miles south of the downtown area of Puerto Vallarta. This long stretch of beach filled with white sand is in pristine condition and is perfect for swimming and has continuously been awarded the blue flag for cleanliness. Another plus, it is equipped with the necessary services any local or visitor may need.
