The city center includes the main courtyard and the emblematic tower of the Church of Guadalupe and her filigree crown. You’ll feel the magic of Puerto Vallarta that no other beach destination can offer. It brings together the essence and warmth of an old colonial Mexican town with the luxury and high technology of a modern tourist destination.

Long extensions of fine sand beaches and spectacular clear-blue waters surround Punta de Mita. Punta de Mita is considered one of the best places to practice deep sea fishing, snorkeling and surfing. Punta de Mita features world-class restaurants where you can indulge your palate as well as your sight because many of them offer outstanding views of the bay or dinner under the star-filled skies.
