Located just east of the airport, Nuevo Vallarta offers up all the best resorts, shopping and dining in the region. Because Nuevo Vallarta is so popular it is easy to catch an UBER, taxi or bus to Puerto Vallarta.
With great beaches where you can walk out into the ocean forever and still only be waist deep. Restaurants that will make your taste buds explode. And shops for every type of person. It’s hard to find a reason why Nuevo Vallarta isn't the best place to spend your vacation.
Of the 17 AAA Five Diamond Award hotels in Mexico, 5 are located in the Bahia de Banderas region and four are located in Nuevo Vallarta or just north. With competition like that, you can see why the other hotels would want to step up their game as well.
