Hankering for a change of scenery? Your new home away from home awaits. Located on Banderas Bay, between the Pacific Ocean and the Sierra Madre mountains, Puerto Vallarta is a unique and magical destination to cure the winter blues. Featuring cobblestone streets, lush green mountains bathed in waterfalls and rivers, miles of beach and over 300 days of warm weather and blue skies, it’s no wonder why it’s one of the most romantic towns in Mexico. Operating at 75% capacity, the city has enacted strict health and sanitation measures across all hotels, restaurants, and public spaces for visitors and citizens alike to best ensure the safety of all. To instill more confidence, the state of Jalisco achieved the World Travel and Tourism Council’s ‘Safe Travels’ stamp by meeting the global organization’s safe operation standards. Further from this month, air passengers returning to the United States must produce a negative COVID-19 PCR test (LAMP tests are also admissible for Canada), no more than 72 hours prior to departure. Additionally, U.S. travelers can also provide documentation of recovery following an infection.
There’s a lot more to the city than just sun and sand. Recognized as ‘The Friendliest City in the World’ by Condé Nast Magazine, Puerto Vallarta takes pride in its authenticity, rich history, art, tradition, and culture. Just a quick flight from LAX, the coastal city in the state of Jalisco is easily accessible, fully operational, and a safe destination for all international visitors. You’ll never be too far from roving Mariachi bands, ready to perform for you on the beach or at restaurants, or street food carts perfect for snacking while you explore. Stay safe and social distanced with the numerous outdoor adventures the city offers including oceanside horseback riding, snorkeling, jungle tours, skydiving and more!
