Puerto Vallarta, Mexico Vacation
$299 per person
Located on Mexico’s Pacific Coast, this town sits at the bottom of the mountains right next to one of the world’s largest bays; the "Bahia de Banderas" or "Bay of Flags" in English. This town was called “Las Peñas” in the 19th century from miners in the mountains. Puerto Vallarta is one of the most exceptional places due to its biodiversity. Make sure you explore its beautiful tropical vegetation which covers its mountains and shelters hundreds of species of birds, orchids, and wildlife. See how the humpback whales leap out of the water, dolphins playing; or travel out to sea to fish marlin, tuna and sea bass. Vallarta offers a mix of international chefs, the local dishes are very interesting for the newcomers too; these include dishes that are part of Jalisco's traditions (the state in which Vallarta is located), specially from Guadalajara, the state capital.
