Everything Old is New Again in Puerto Vallarta

Share Article

Not too long ago, Puerto Vallarta was just a sleepy fishing village hugging Mexico's Pacific Coast. The city backs up to the jungle-clad foothills of the rugged Sierra Madre mountains. But even as a bustling, cosmopolitan resort community, the sounds of the countryside are only a few city blocks away; you can still hear roosters crowing to welcome the dawn as nightlife ends.

Visitors to Puerto Vallarta soon discover that once you have been there, it's hard to let go of the place. While you are in Puerto Vallarta, you don't want to leave; once you've left, you'll be thinking of coming back. Perhaps it's because this is where everything that is part of the 'real' Mexico started: mariachi music, and hearty Classical Mexican dishes- enchiladas, guacamole and tacos- all taste better in Puerto Vallarta. And no one can ever get enough of the startling sunsets on the Bay of Banderas, especially while sipping a margarita on the Malecón boardwalk.

Villas Vallarta by Canto del Sol, the new all-inclusive resort on Puerto Vallarta's Banderas Bay, manages to retain the traditional ambiance of Puerto Vallarta and has become a favorite “home-away-from-home” for singles, couples or families seeking both the perfect hotel to stay in at best value, especially for those long-term stays.
