Puerto Vallarta history page

Located on the Western Pacific coast of Mexico in the
state of Jalisco, Puerto Vallarta's charm makes the
resort famous around the world. Along with its
cobblestone streets, We suggest everyone to try the
Puerto Vallarta city tour and the see the stunning
beaches, plentiful marine life, lush Sierra Madre
Mountains, exceptional restaurants, fine Gourmet
Festival, new golf courses and vibrant culture, Puerto
Vallarta is a vacationer's paradise that has
maintained its unique Old Mexico charm despite the
addition of these modern conveniences.

Around the Bay, beautiful beaches, lush jungles and
sparkling waterfalls offer many opportunities for the
adventurous, while five star resorts, world-class
shopping and gourmet restaurants satisfy even the
most sophisticated traveler. Stretching from the south
end of Old Town to central downtown, a newly
extended and refurbished boardwalk along the ocean,
called the Malecon, passes by any number of shops,
restaurants, and hotels, and often plays host to
mimes, breakdancers, clowns and artists.

The residents of Puerto Vallarta are very friendly and
generally willing to help with directions and other
requests. Old Town Vallarta (or the Zona Romantica
district) south of the River Cuale is more like a
Mexican town and less like a tourist trap.

International Airport (IATA: PVR) is located just to
the North of Puerto Vallarta proper, and just south of
Nuevo Vallarta. Most major US airlines serve the
airport along with Aeromexico. It has been recently
remodeled, though waits can still occur when more
than two flights have landed. Note that the arrival
area is plagued by timeshare hucksters. They will
offer to arrange a cab for you and try to rope you into
a timeshare sales presentation. After you clear
customs, walk quickly through the next room - the one
housing the hucksters - continue walking past the
rope-line. Now look for the official taxi kiosk out in the
main airport atrium. You purchase your taxi trip here.
All other offers of cab rides you will receive between
customs and the kiosk will be from timeshare
hucksters. Ignore every one of them. I can't
emphasize this enough. The bad experience of those
taken in can ruin one's first hours in PVR, and that
would be a shame. Or hire private transportation. If
you've packed lightly you can take the city buses into
town. Continue straight ahead as you exit the arrivals
area and exit the doors in front of you. The bus stop
is to your left, under the pedestrian overpass. Wait for
a bus marked Centro (but NOT marked Pitillal or
Bobadilla), wave it down, pay your five pesos, and
enjoy the ride. You've just saved $20. You don't need
exact change for the bus. Drivers will make change.
But you will need some small change. Drivers won't
break large bills.
