Families, active travelers, nature lovers and fine dining enthusiasts never run out of places to explore.

Today, Puerto Vallarta reigns as one of Mexico’s most popular winter destinations because of its great diversity and almost perfect climate. Along with golden beaches, mountains and jungles, you’ll discover modern amenities and an endless array of outdoor adventures — from zip lining and surfing to mountain biking and sport fishing.
Delta Vacations offers rental cars, tours and activities, including a sunset sail, ATV tours and mountain adventures. A magnificent beach destination, the Puerto Vallarta region is several destinations rolled into one, each with its own character and charm. On the southern end is the quaint Romantic Zone, where the Playa los Muertos attracts sun worshippers to its golden sand and countless beach bars. Further south are the seaside villages of Boca de Tomatlan and Mismaloya. North of the river, the Old Town meanders uphill to Gringo Gulch. Here, you’ll find the Plaza de Armas (main square) and the Los Arcos Amphitheatre, where daily free performances draw crowds.
Along Riviera Nayarit’s coast are beautiful beaches for all likes and tastes. Banderas Bay is famous for being the destination spot of thousands of humpback whales that offer an unmatched spectacle. Here, you will also find Nuevo Vallarta and Punta Mita, home of luxury golf courses, marinas, shopping areas and hotels. One word rules over the rhythm of this picturesque and high-spirited corner of the Mexican Pacific — surfing. The lovers of this sport give the beaches of Sayulita its relaxed cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Puerto Vallarta’s renowned Malecon (seaside promenade) runs from the Romantic Zone to the beginning of the Hotel Zone. If you love to shop, bring an extra suitcase because you’ll find a high concentration of boutiques and shops here, offering everything from folk art to beachwear. From popular souvenirs to fine jewelry and designer clothing from all over the world, Puerto Vallarta shopping has it all.
From tapas bars and taco stands to chic spots on the beach and farmers' markets, Puerto Vallarta is a foodie nirvana, and is second only to Mexico City as the country's food mecca. There are many culinary options to choose from in Riviera Nayarit. Luxury hotels and restaurants serve gourmet dishes prepared with fresh seafood, always with a pre-Hispanic touch. At the beach and around town, visitors can try exquisite delicacies, such as shrimp meatballs, traditional grilled fish, shrimp tamales, marlin tacos or chalupas and much more.
