The Westin Resort & Spa, Puerto Vallarta
Powered by Foursquare
A place of vivid contrasts, Puerto Vallarta offers quaint cobblestone streets with an old-Mexico flair alongside a modern tableau of lively shops, excellent dining, and a pulsating nightlife. The charming downtown is just 15 minutes from the quiet beachside setting of The Westin Resort & Spa, Puerto Vallarta.
Start with a walk down the malecón, the town’s oceanfront promenade, lined with sculptures inspired by local myths and legends surrounding the ocean. It runs along a long strip of white sandy beach that gives way to the blue waters of the Pacific Ocean’s Banderas Bay, home to seasonal visits from dolphins and whales. South along the shore are some of Mexico’s most beautiful beaches, perfect for relaxation or watersports.
Venture inland from the malecón to explore Puerto Vallarta’s winding streets, featuring white-washed, red-roofed buildings backed by the lush jungle hills beyond. You’ll discover world-class art galleries, shops ranging from local handicraft vendors to upscale boutiques, and splendid restaurants, cafes, bars, and nightclubs.
