Puerto Vallarta is situated directly on Mexico’s Pacific coast, just five hours west of Guadalajara, in the Pacific Ocean's Bahía de Banderas. This popular resort town boasts some of the best beaches in Mexico, meaning that Puerto Vallarta hotels are often full of sun-seekers from all around the world and adventurers on weekend trips from Guadalajara. One of the best things to do in Puerto Vallarta is to take a perch at a traditional Mexican beach bar or restaurant—preferably when the Puerto Vallarta weather is spoiling the city with long summer evenings—and watch the frenzy unravel. Thanks to a young and liberal attitude, Puerto Vallarta is also one of Latin America’s top LGBTQ-friendly destinations and is known as “La ciudad más amigable del mundo”—which translates to “the Friendliest City in the World”.
