The modern way to vacation

In contrast to Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, which has a coastal-town atmosphere, Nuevo Vallarta represents modernity in every sense of the word. It is located in the state of Nayarit and sits on the Bay of Banderas, with a fantastic selection of large hotels and exclusive apartments, alongside multiple beaches, restaurants, spas, golf courses, marinas, amusement parks, and a plethora of activities on and around the ocean.

It is also a great starting point for exploring picturesque towns such as Sayulita or San Pancho.

Activities to do in Nuevo Vallarta

This place has become one of the most popular spots for enjoying a honeymoon, travelling with family, or setting off on adventures. There’s something for everyone: a romantic beach getaway, the sophisticated spectacle of a circus, hiking trails, watersports, and much more.

Enjoy the many miles of coast that spread out along this city and take a dip in the warm waters, or even practice bodyboarding, parasailing, or windsurfing. Or, simply spread out a towel on the golden sand and relax as you admire the glistening water of the vast ocean.
