Tips on arriving in Puerto Vallarta by Air and Cruise
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

Some people did not even know that summer is our rainy season (their

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.
