The bay that Puerto Vallarta lies in the center of is 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, the home of Tequila and the 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. In many places the jungle is footsteps from the beach. Numerous year-round rivers feed the Bay. See Puerto Vallarta Area Description
