Honeymoon Destination: Puerto Vallarta

Honeymoon Destination Puerto Vallarta, MexicoWith the whitewashed buildings, cobblestone streets, brilliant profusion of flowers, and some of the most breathtaking bays in the world, Puerto Vallarta is the ideal place for your destination wedding or honeymoon. From the moment you step off the plane you will be awestruck with the natural beauty of this spectacular and mesmerizing town.

Known as the jewel of the Mexican Rivera, Puerto Vallarta has, of course, the beautiful beaches that all of the top Mexico tourist spots have, but offer so many more activities that whether your honeymoon will last 3 days or 3 months you can plan out your excursions and never do the same thing twice.

Snorkel or scuba dive in the sparkling clear water at the Bay of Banderas, go hiking or biking through the tropical-forested mountains, visit Punta Mita, a sleepy fishing village, and converse with the friendly locals, or stay at an all-inclusive resort and enjoy the upscale shops and exotic cuisine. No matter what you choose this sun-drenched colonial seaside town will make your honeymoon or destination wedding the most sublime and memorable trip of your life.

Unwind as you walk together under a scenic tropical waterfall, stay cozy as you watch an unforgettable sunset on the warm sandy beach, or site-see and visit the landmark Church of Guadalupe. Rent a private condo and have your in-house chef prepare a romantic dinner for two or plan to stay at one of our many all-inclusive resorts which offer many honeymoon packages that could possibly include spacious honeymoon suites, renowned cuisine, exotic concoctions, relaxing spa treatments, and even a bottle of champagne to celebrate your new life together. With so much to choose from you will soon learn you are honeymooning in one of the most romantic cities in the world!
