Marina Vallarta attractions & sightseeing

Marina Vallarta is a bit like a resort within a resort with an exclusive Marina filled with yachts, boats and charters, plus a a championship 18-hole golf course designed by Joe Finger.

Marina Vallarta

The Marina Vallarta area is more exclusive and a bit more expensive than other areas in Puerto Vallarta. Even so, it offer lots of good shops, a great range from inexpensive restaurants to fancy elegant dining options, delis, a Starbucks, spas and bakeries and ice-cream stores too, even a little supermarket.

The view and the relax atmosphere makes the Marina a great afternoon sunset stroll for couples and families, watching the yachts and boats. The Marina is close to the airport, but planes do not fly close so you don't hear them.

There are many luxy hotels and resorts in the Marina area, including the Marriott, Velas Vallarta, Westin and more.
