The Pacific Coast of Mexico that extends north and south from Puerto Vallarta is a varied playground that moves back and forth from seclusion to nightlife, high-rises to beach huts. Much of it is geared to the same kind of mass tourism you find in Cancun on the opposite side of the country, but in Punta Mita and Costalegre you find some of the best luxury hotels in all of Mexico.
This region is full of superlatives. You could easily argue that it contains the best Mexican all-inclusive (Grand Velas), the best golf resorts (Four Seasons Punta Mita and El Tamarindo), and the best resort for privacy (Las Alamandas). Plus Hacienda San Angel and Casa Las Brisas are two of Mexico's best-run seaside boutique hotels.
We have detailed reviews of all of those, plus more excellent hotels that are likely to please those looking for the best the region has to offer. If you're movie stars trying to escape the cameras, honeymooners looking for a romantic escape, or a family traveling in style, we filter out the noise for you and help you find that perfect luxury hotel or resort.
