17 of 21

Liz and Dick’s steamy courtship during the filming of Night of the Iguana pegged Puerto Vallarta as a playground for glamorous fun, and ever since then the Pacific coast city has drawn tourists from the U.S. looking for romance and vacations to remember. These days, what they’ll remember is hardly the stuff of a John Huston movie: spring brings college kids looking for all-inclusive resorts, poolside DJ parties, “extreme” zipline experiences, and all-you-can-drink bar specials. Need an escape from the coed frenzy? Snorkel amid coral beds in Los Arcos Marine Natural Area, or stroll the romantic calles of the steeply terraced Old City.
