The big pull—the bargain—behind Puerto Vallarta is that, although it’s only a few miles from Cancun, it’s seemingly a hundred. While the luxury all-inclusives are still plentiful, nowhere to be found are the disappointing beaches strewn with sun baking bodies. In Puerto Vallarta, the beaches are quiet, unspoiled and sprawling. No longer is there a need to hope that the beach in the brochure matches the one at the hotel.
What you see is what you get in Puerto Vallarta, and that’s what we like most about it. There is not photoshopping or photos at awkwardly flattering angles. If we saw the Eiffel tower in a photo of a Puerto Vallarta beach, well, we’d expect there to be one jutting out from the sand, come our next visit; that’s how stoic its beaches are.
Although Puerto Vallarta already flaunts some pretty spectacular sights, like any scenario with the potential for competition, there are some that outshine others.
Destiladeras – A wide, white beach situated between the town of La Crus and Punta Mita (near Rancho Banderas). Along the shore are 2 or 3 restaurants. The crowd never gets too large and the waves are ideal for surfing and skimboarding.
Punta Mita – Home of two beaches; the beach at El Ancolte and the one at Emiliano Zapata. The specialty here is abnormally clear-blue water; generally calm and inviting. Although they are popular with the tourists, the beach never gets uncomfortably crowded.
Sayulita – The best place to surf in Puerto Vallarta. Features a large number of restaurants and a bordering community.
San Pancho (San Francisco) – The most striking beach of Puerto Vallarta. Excellent for walking, or just observing. The town that neighbors it is set in something of a Walt Whitman poem; it is sleepy and quaint.
The beaches of Puerto Vallarta are unlike those of Cabo, Cancun, or Miami. They are not stuffed to the brim with tourists or tourism. They prefer to be enjoyed and experienced, rather than accommodated or tolerated.

ATM and Credit Card Fraud in Puerto Vallarta, Olas Altas Zone.
During the last weeks a growing number of card holders report fraudulent withdrawals from their accounts. This is not a Vallarta specific matter, credit card fraud is a problem everywhere in the world.
As reported a criminal group from the north, possibly professionals from Monterrey or the USA, uses stolen data including PIN numbers to withdraw funds from ATMs in Mexico and the USA.
You should make sure, that nobody has the possibility to observ You entering Your PIN number in local ATMs. This may prevent in some cases but isn´t a secure method, as criminals use electronical devices, which they connect between the ATMs datatransfer wires to spy Your PIN number, identity and so on.
The best thing You actually can do is to buy traveler cheques by American Express or Visa.
Hey, I was looking a long time for a nice and well build Puerto Vallarta Blog. Now I found this one, congrats to the nice work. I am not really sure which beach is shown in the header but seems to be a bit outside of Puerto Vallarta.
I will be back to Puerto Vallarta in october, when sun is back. Hehe !
Later I will write a complete article featuring my experiences in Puerto Vallarta.
Yes, it happened. Britney Spears visited Puerto Vallarta ! Ok, not EXACTLY Puerto Vallarta, but the famous Four Seasons hotel at Punta Mita. The north point of the Banderas Bay, 25 miles to Puerto Vallarta. The hotel is known as one of the best Puerto Vallarta offers. If You now ask around in the city, everbody has seen Britney Spears and everyone took some photos. Just, nobody has one !!! Corious not ?
At least we dont have, and if so, we wouldnt post them ! Why ?? Very easy, people come to relax and it doesnt matter who they are. Why a star isnt allowed to have some relaxing days ??
However, Puerto Vallarta is happy about Britney Spears visit, it is the best publicity for the area. We hope that she and her friend had some nice and relaxing hours, and that they forgot for a time all the trouble ! You are welcome when ever You want Mrs. Spears !!
Just 3 days ago the Puerto Vallarta News announced the foundation of a new and international University of Arts. Featured are Ballet, Contemporanean Dance, Music, Theater and various additional areas of studies. I believe this is one of the best decisions of the last years in P.V. Many tourists like myself had been asking for improved quality on touristical and cultural features. Thank You Vallarta !!
