Puerto Vallarta lays in Bahia Banderas (the Bay of Flags).
Most of the north side of the bay lies in our neighbouring state of Nayarit while Puerto Vallarta is in the state of Jalisco, which is the home of Tequila and Mariachi.The whole bay is developing rapidly, with Nayarit developing faster than Vallarta. Unlike Cabo San Lucas and Cancún, Vallarta is ringed with jungle-covered mountains and in many places the jungle comes to just footsteps from the beach. Numerous year-round rivers feed the Bay.
