In a sea of similar places to stay on beaches of varying quality, we showcase the best of the best Puerto Vallarta luxury resorts and those north and south of the gateway to the region.
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 on the opposite side of the country, but in Punta de Mita and Costalegre you find some of the best luxury hotels in all of Mexico. There are international chain standouts like Four Seasons and Secrets, as well as fine local boutique properties with a real sense of place.
This Puerto Vallarta region is full of superlatives. You could easily argue that it contains the best Mexican all–inclusive (Grand Velas), some of the best golf resorts, and the best resort for true privacy (Las Alamandas). Plus Hacienda San Angel, Casa Kimberly, and Casa de Mita are some of Mexico's best–run boutique hotels in a resort region. Puerto Vallarta has excellent air connections with the USA, Canada, and elsewhere in Mexico, so it's easy to get here for your Mexican beach getaway. Plus there are plenty fo adventure activities away from the resorts, on and off the water.
We have detailed reviews of all of the best Puerto Vallarta luxury hotels and resorts, with enough variety to please any upscale traveler type looking for the best this Jalisco and Nayarit 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.
