With its rich culture and flourishing gastronomy scene, Puerto Vallarta has become one of Mexico’s most alluring coastal destinations, offering something for everyone. But the scenic region with postcard views is more than just a beautiful resort town.

The sandy beaches and almost perfect weather of Cancún and Tulum have attracted millions of visitors for years, luring everyone from the beach bum to the culture vulture to the dreamy resort towns on the Caribbean coast. But Puerto Vallarta, a city on the Pacific recently recognized by Conde Nast Traveler’s 2019 Readers’ Choice Award as one of the top 20 cities in the world, has proved to be just as worthy – if not more.

Referred to by the locals as “Vallarta,” the striking city is the home of mariachi music, raicilla – the main local drink – and a number of top restaurants. Mix that with charming neighborhoods, historic landmarks and popular tourist attractions, and you have a getaway suitable for families, couples and solo travelers.

Situated on Mexico’s Pacific coast in Jalisco state, Puerto Vallarta is surrounded by the clear waters of Bahía de Banderas (Banderas Bay), lush forests and the ridges of the Sierra Madre. And despite its scenic views, the city has maintained its authenticity. In fact, walk down the cobbled and narrow streets, and you’ll find yourself in some of Puerto Vallarta’s most traditional areas, including the Romantic Zone, known for its lively atmosphere and its range of art galleries, traditional markets and eateries.

This paradise presents an ideal opportunity for those who wish to generate an investment to live, rent or resell, given the expansion and boom in real estate development in the area. Financially, it provides an excellent return on investment. In addition, it has all the services, excellent comfort and maximum security.
