Tips on arriving in Puerto Vallarta by Air and Cruise Ship.

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 neighboring 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

We think you’ll find the most up-to-date information here. Unlike many other sites, we don’t show restaurants that have gone out of business or keep you guessing about the timeliness of our information. Things change quickly here. Check the Insider Tips page to find a list of our recommended Bars and Restaurants.

Some people did not even know that summer is our rainy season (their Travel Agents, if they knew, often didn’t tell them). Click here for Weather and other information.

The center of Puerto Vallarta is unique in having maintained its small village atmosphere without succumbing, too much, to the pressures of tourism. On the other hand, don’t be surprised to find a Starbucks in the main square.

If there is anything in the following pages that you can not find or need more information on, please feel free to e-mail us. Hope you all come and visit Puerto Vallarta soon.

You won’t find many “Bells & Whistles” on this site, it’s all about information on Puerto Vallarta, which is, we expect, what you were looking for? More about the Area around the bay.

Showing El Rio BBQ and Moro Paraiso Restaurants and the 04 Bus Stops, most stop just after Paso Ancho, every second to third will continue to Paso del Guayabo, look for the sign in the front window or ask the driver. Bus fare is 7.5 pesos.
If you are walking from the last stop ‘Paseo Guayaba’ to Moro Paraios, it’s about one kilometer (0.62 mile)
You can also rent a horse to take you from Paso Ancho for 150 pesos per horse per hour, contact me if you’re interested in this option.

The laid back, small village, atmosphere still exists in the outlying areas around Puerto Vallarta. In the Sierras behind Puerto Vallarta are some villages and small towns that are still living the old way. Some have not changed much in the last 100 years. Quiet, uncomplicated and friendly, they are not too easy to reach and that’s why they have not changed much today.

Although some can be reached by small plane in as little as 15 min. from Puerto Vallarta airport, to get to them by road can take half a day. The main reason for this is that most are high in the Sierras, up to 6,000 feet. The second reason is that few of the roads are even 2nd class and some bus routes do not even run during the rainy season. In some cases, to reach these places by bus you will have to stay overnight, since the return bus will leave very soon after you arrive.
Most were established in the 16th Century by the Spanish, in many cases because of the gold and silver to be mined there. Few of the mines remain today and agriculture is now the main business . Most have one or two hotels and surprisingly pleasant Haciendas are available for accommodation at some places, while at others it maybe necessary to stay at someone’s house.

Beyond Yelapa. Apart from Pizota, the only place of any interest still inside the bay is El Chimo, a small fishing village with some wonderful beaches to the east of it. Beyond the bay to the south is a long, long beach at Mayto and fishing village at Tehuamixtle.

To the north, outside of the bay, Sayulita is know for surfing and boasts a female surfing school. Beyond several small towns with beaches that are far less commercialized than Puerto Vallarta. Except on Mexican national holidays when they will be very busy. The two weeks of Semana Santa and also at Christmas these beaches will be packed.
