Relaxation and luxury are always included in the room rate at these 13 all-inclusive properties.
You probably don’t need convincing that Mexico is amazing. In fact, one step into Puerto Vallarta’s Zona Romántica (Romantic Zone), with its cobblestone streets lined with cafes and boutiques, lively art scene, and traditional cuisine, will confirm that you’ll never, ever want to leave.
So don’t — at least not for a while. Leave it to PV’s finest all-inclusive properties to take care of the basics, allowing for ample time to enjoy this coastal paradise without a care.
Hugging the cerulean Bahía de Banderas (Banderas Bay), Puerto Vallarta is a sweet nook on Mexico’s Pacific Coast, offering travelers spectacular vistas, prime real estate for beach blankets, and even a thriving nightlife scene.
It may be hard to believe that prior to the filming of The Night of the Iguana in the 1960s, when Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor’s love affair was in full swing (those looking to splurge can stay at Liz’s once-owned villa, Casa Kimberly), the town was merely a tiny fishing village.
But Puerto Vallarta’s quaint history only adds to its charm, palpable in a stroll down the mile long El Malecón, a buzzing boardwalk rife with sculptures, street performers, souvenir shops, and some of the best restaurants and nightclubs in town.
From there, head south to catch unmatched sunsets from Playa Los Muertos and its pier. Lest you forgot that PV is backed by verdant mountains, take a trip to the Vallarta Botanical Gardens to admire exotic orchids and feed the hummingbirds.
Many of the best all-inclusive resorts are well within reach of downtown and Marina Vallarta, an attraction in itself with harbor views and excellent shopping, just minutes from the airport. The neighboring towns of Nuevo Vallarta and Punta Mita in Nayarit have embraced the tourism spillover, with top-rated properties of their own.
Wherever you decide to bed down on a trip to Puerto Vallarta, check in to one of these all-inclusives for the stress-free getaway of a lifetime.
