Vive Mexico Islas Marietas 03

Vallarta Lifestyles has published a list of their favorite beaches with crystal-clear waters in the Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit region, among these beaches you can find Marietas Islands and Colomitos.

We have an intimate connection with water. We live in a blue world and more than half of our body is made up of this liquid. We relax each time we see it and renew our energies by just being on the beach. In Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit, we can proudly say that we have beaches that conquer us with their soft, golden sand, tranquil waters and pristine landscapes framed by beautiful vegetation. Here we present a list of our favorite spots for snorkeling, swimming, tanning and experiencing an extraordinary moment.

Enjoy the experience and don’t forget that our beaches need everyone’s help to stay clean and beautiful, so always carry a bag to pick up, take and place your trash in the proper container. Keep in mind that weather conditions and each season of the year have an effect on both the conditions of the beaches and the color of the sea.

Golden Gate Bridge

Puerto Vallarta will have a new sister city: San Francisco, California. It’s been confirmed that it will happen next September 29th, in the presence of the consulate of San Francisco. This partnership is estimated to bring incredible benefits in tourism promotion, momentum for the LGBT community, inclusion, and human rights.

The Jalisco Tourism Secretariat, Enrique Ramos Flores, has been invited to the ceremony. As well as a representative of the National Electronic, Telecommunications and Technologies Industry (Canieti, as it is known in Spanish), to discuss probable partnerships with Sillicon Valley companies.

Susana Rodríguez, President of the City Council’s Tourism Commission, noted there’s always a guiding theme in these committees, “this time it’s the LGBT community, which bring us to themes of inclusion and human rights, since both cities are known for their tolerance, acceptance and respect for the community.”

San Francisco is one of the main markets for Puerto Vallarta, with direct flights all year long, sometimes even twice a week, with this town twinning, a boost to tourism flow is expected as well as to new technologies and software development, San Francisco’s biggest industry.

Puerto Vallarta’s Historic Center is now a protected Cultural Heritage of the Mexican State of Jalisco. 

When you think of Puerto Vallarta, you probably call to mind its picturesque central plaza, cobblestone streets, traditionally colonial architecture, gorgeous churches, and the many shops, art galleries, and cafes that line its streets and boardwalk. In a Nutshell: In the midst of Puerto Vallarta’s centennial celebration, the state of Jalisco, Mexico has declared PV’s downtown historic center district a “Cultural Heritage Site”.

You probably also remember that warm, sunny afternoon you spent at that oh-so-authentic tapas café on the boardwalk, watching the crowds walk by and washing down all those tacos and chips with that bucket of beeritas that haunted you later that night…..ah, good times, yes?

Well now the site of some of your fondest memories is also a Cultural Heritage site, thanks to a proclamation by the state of Jalisco. Congrats, downtown PV!No one deserves it more than you!
