Condé Nast Names Puerto Vallarta Among the Best Cities


Condé Nast Traveler magazine has announced the results of their 2019 Readers’ Choice Awards, where Puerto Vallarta placed 5th among the “Best Small Cities”, voted by their American readers and 11th among the “Best Cities in the World” voted by their British readers.

The magazine had this to day about Puerto Vallarta:

5. Puerto Vallarta, Mexico: Puerto Vallarta may have a certain youthful energy during spring break, but there’s so much more to this Pacific resort town than sunbathing undergrads. There’s winter whale watching in Banderas Bay, an artisan market with local goods, and, just a half-hour boat ride south, the quiet shores and waterfall hikes of Yelapa Beach.

If you want to feel like a celebrity, stay at Casa Kimberly, the former home of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton that is now a nine-suite boutique hotel. The Elizabeth Taylor Suite features the (human) heart-shaped marble bathtub that Taylor specially commissioned for the property.
