Perched on the Pacific, Puerto Vallarta perfects the idea of a resort town. It curves around a sandy bay, faces every sunset and stands before a backdrop of lush rainforest and epic mountains. Just north of the city, Riviera Nayarit covers the coast with fishing towns turned luxurious resort hubs, blending the best of both worlds between forested peaks, wild jungle and the immensity of the ocean.
