Puerto Vallarta
Bordered by the towering Sierra Madre mountains and the sparkling depths of the Pacific Ocean – Puerto Vallarta is a city of charm and of contrasts. From its simple cobblestone streets in the town center to the sophisticated services of its Grand Tourism hotels, Puerto Vallarta is always at its most accommodating. You will find it a place that seems to offer each person their own ideal blend of relaxation and exhilaration; tranquility and activity.

Puerto Vallarta is named after Ignacio Vallarta, a former governor of Jalisco. In Spanish, Puerto Vallarta is often shortened to “Vallarta”, while English speakers call the city P.V. for short. The city occasionally is spelled or pronounced as Porto Vallarta. Being a Spanish name, Vallarta is usually pronounced ‘vie-arta’, not ‘val-arta’.

Puerto Vallarta was once named as La Ciudad Mas Amigable en el Mundo (The Friendliest City in the World), as the sign reads when entering from Nayatrit. Most believe this holds true today.

Today Puerto Vallarta is a thriving beach and vacation destination with all the charm and sophistication that Mexico has to offer.
