From the blue waters and white sands of Mismaloya to the secluded shores and jade backdrop of Majahuitas, it would be easy to call Puerto Vallarta heaven on earth. But aside from its stunning beaches and natural landscapes, Puerto Vallarta has plenty more for budget travelers. Cruise the Rio Cuale Riverwalk, or tackle a challenging hike through the El Tuito jungle to reach the amazing Yelapa Waterfall.
Mexico doesn't come any more beautiful than a Puerto Vallarta vacation, so let CheapTickets find you the best bang for your travel buck.
Many people take their Puerto Vallarta vacations at any time except the summer for a couple of reasons. For starters, the weather is usually nice in other places during the summer, so there is no reason to visit a tropical location. Secondly, Puerto Vallarta gets a lot of rain in July, August and September, which can quickly ruin a vacation. These months are cheaper, however, so you can find a great deal. Do not miss the Festival Cultural de Mayo held during the last week of May and first week of June. This festival celebrates the city’s birthday, and festivities include displays of local talent in art, music, food vending, and traditional bullfights.
Playa Conchas Chinas is a wonderfully secluded beach near the city that offers visitors rest and relaxation.
The Ixtapa Archeological Zone is home to ceremonial and residential sites dating from 900 to 1200 AD.
Visit the historical Saucedo Theatre Building that houses a fun selection of retail stores.
The Cuale Archaeological Museum displays artwork from the days before the Spanish arrived in Mexico.
Puerto Vallarta travel should include a trip to Mercado Isle Cuale, a public market where you can local artisanal goods and unique souvenirs.
Cruise around charming cobblestone streets and hidden alleyways to come across some of the best bargains in Mexico. Buy handmade pottery, silver jewelry and leather goods for insanely low prices, and peruse the sidewalk artwork by local artists. The food is a steal, too, so be sure to check out the carts selling mouthwatering fresh fruit and margaritas.
Puerto Vallarta travel experiences are made complete by a visit to these twin gems. The Plaza de Armas is the heart of the town, a square full of life and color, music and dancing around the clock. Check out the Presidencia Municipal and Los Arcos amphitheater en route to the Malecon, a mile-long seafront walkway filled with sculptures and home to the much-photographed La Parroquia de Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe church.
This historic district offers beautiful views and landscapes, as well as a free-entry museum, the Museo Rio Cuale, filled with pre-Colombian ceramics. Travel along one of the suspension bridges before checking out the Mercado Municipal Rio Cuale for even more bargains on your Puerto Vallarta travels.
Playa de los Muertos is one of the most popular beaches in Puerto Vallarta for good reason. Kick back on the clean sands before taking a dip in the crystal waters. Local vendors stroll the sands with grilled shrimp on skewers, perfect for a post-dip snack. If you think this place is phenomenal by day, just wait until sunset, when it comes to life with music and dancing.
For the best views on your Puerto Vallarta vacation, take the hike to the top of the El Faro Lighthouse. The trip up the steps is a bit strenuous, but you'll be wowed by the gorgeous 360-degree view. Bring your camera and plenty of water, and whatever you do: Don't give up halfway – the view from the top is so worth it.
