Puerto Vallarta is a town on the Pacific coast of Mexico, in the Bahia de Banderas Bay. This town is one of the favorite places for retired citizens of the USA and Canada. Also, Puerto Vallarta is considered to be the capital of LGBT tourism in Mexico. In addition to enjoying the beach, you can explore small shops full of souvenirs, artwork, and jewelry. Animal-lovers can hang out with whales who spend time relatively often in these waters. Visitors can enjoy heavenly food in fine restaurants or walk on El Malecon (dock) as the sun sets down.
