Coastal Lagoons, Hidden Beaches and Mountainous Jungles 

The Pacific coastline is a stunning natural beauty, with lush jungles, turquoise waters and oceanfront hotels surrounded by the Sierra Madre mountains. Whether you want to spend your time relaxing on golden sand beaches or go ziplining, whale watching or island hopping, there is something for everyone on this expansive Mexican Riviera.  

Puerto Vallarta is a well-known cosmopolitan city along the Pacific Coast, offering high-end boutique hotels and beach-side resorts set within one of the biggest bays in the world - Banderas Bay. Day trips include snorkelling to the clear blue waters of the Marieta Islands, home to the elusive hidden beach, Playa del Amor, and colourful coral reefs. You may also be interested in parasailing, renting a jet ski or visiting the nearby Yelapa Beach, nestled within an isolated cove which can only be accessed by boat.  

Towards the north of Puerto Vallarta is Punta Mita. A luxurious beach hideaway, which encompasses a 1,500-acre resort and a small residential community along the peninsular. The coastline rests along Litibu Bay, which is an oasis of pristine white sand beaches and crystal-clear waters.  

The Area: 

Walk along Puerto Vallarta's famous Malecón boardwalk connecting the colonial old town and the lively Zona Rosa neighbourhood. Discover an array of top-quality street food stalls and upmarket restaurants, which stretch along a one-mile-long seashore promenade. Spend an evening checking out some of the many VIP nightclubs, trendy cocktail bars and LGBT-friendly events that draw many tourists to this city every year.  

Punta Mita is home to the Four Seasons Punta Mita and St. Regis Punta Mita. These upscale resorts offer the perfect beach getaway away from the hustle and bustle of the city.  

Playa de la Ropa is a quieter alternative further south, a mile-long beach lined by palm trees and seafood restaurants. La Ropa is a perfect destination for swimming, waterskiing, parasailing and watching the sun set into the Pacific Ocean. 

Best Time To Go: 

It is recommended to visit the Pacific Coast during the wet season which is between April and June. The rain is still scarce, with cooler temperatures and fewer crowds. If you are interested in whale watching, the best time to visit is from December to March. The hottest month of the year is July, with average highs of 32°C.
