All-Inclusive Waterfront Resort on Puerto Vallarta Marina
Thanks to its location in the Marina Vallarta area of Puerto Vallarta, Vamar Vallarta Marina & Beach Resort offers spectacular views of the water from every side. Look out to the west, and you can see the picture-perfect beaches of Banderas Bay. To the east you can watch sailboats bobbing in their marina slips.
At the resort’s expansive pool there’s a swim-up palapa bar serving snacks and tropical drinks. You can lounge in the sun here or on the beach, which is just steps away. A kids' club keeps little ones occupied with games, crafts, and playtime from early in the morning until 5 p.m. each day. Kids even have their own area of the resort, set apart so as not to disturb adults seeking peace and quiet.
The all-inclusive plan covers all meals, tips, snacks, and domestic alcoholic and nonalcoholic drinks in any of the bars or restaurants onsite. It also entitles you to several resort activities, including nonmotorized watersports (except scuba diving), dance lessons, access to the tennis court, and free bicycle rentals. After all of that, you can head back to your spacious superior room to watch twilight fall from a private balcony overlooking the marina.
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico: Tropical Paradise with Cosmopolitan Flair
Puerto Vallarta is perhaps Mexico’s most sophisticated vacation destination, with expansive beaches, trendy restaurants, and cobblestone streets leading to beautifully preserved 19th-century churches. A 16-block boardwalk known as the malecón offers unobstructed ocean views as it extends from the city center, past fountains and a famous 9-foot-high statue of a boy riding a seahorse.
Vallarta draws a diverse crowd of vacationers intent on relaxing during the day and living it up at night, bouncing between the city’s numerous dance clubs and bouncy castles. For a glimpse of the city's history, head to Viejo Vallarta, also known as Old Town, where artists peddle shawls and piñatas and mariachi bands serenade couples dancing on Plaza Principal.
