Boasting a coastline made for perfectly framed photographs of romantic sunsets, Puerto Vallarta continuously ranks among the world's top tourist resorts.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Playa Las Animas and El Centro.

There's still lots to do: head off the coast to Los Arcos, head outdoors with Bahía de Banderas, and make a trip to The Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
