Hotels in Puerto Vallarta, Nayarit + The Costa Alegre

Live like colonial gentry at Casa Velas, a small adults-only, all-suite boutique hotel in Puerta Vallarta.

At the 12-suite property,  it’s all about the food. Chef-owner Thierry Blouet prepares creative dishes such as crab enchiladas with smoked tomato.
