Puerto Vallarta is a charming colonial town on the Pacific Coast of Mexico. PVR, as it is known to locals, is a perfect blend of the beaches, sun, and nightlife but with deep roots in preserving the cultural identity and authentic vibe from its historic past as a fishing town. Take a stroll along the seaside boardwalk, the Malecón, or take a ‘panga’ boat to visit one of the many unspoiled beaches along the coast. In the evenings, enjoy a traditional Mexican ceviche while you truly relax in the magical sun and sand of PVR.

With old-world architecture and historic cobblestone streets, but with the amenities and conveniences of a modern travel destination, Puerto Vallarta is a true travel haven. It’s ease of access and tourist-friendly infrastructure makes planning a corporate retreat in Puerto Vallarta a great choice.
