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.

The local Navy League Council is already hard at work preparing for the 22nd consecutive year of raising funds to distribute toys to needy kids during the Christmas holidays. They’re collaborating with their many local sponsors, importantly including the Marriott CasaMagna Resort & Spa, Vista Vallarta Golf Club, Coldwell Banker Real Estate, and others to make this the best year ever.
Over the past 21 years, the local Toys for Tots program has distributed more than 175,000 toys (and smiles!) to some of the neediest kids throughout the Bahia. This year we hope to raise enough money to hand out at least another 8,000 toys! In addition, we plan to add to the dozens of playgrounds we’ve constructed over the past 20+ years.
Next up will be the annual Toys for Tots Charity Ball at the Marriott Hotel the evening of December 8. It will be an evening of great dancing and a delicious dinner served by the award-winning Marriott chef. Again, contact Jerry Lafferty if you also plan to attend the Dinner/Dance.
