Puerto Vallarta is located on the Pacific Coast on one of the largest bays in the world. It is the largest natural bay in Mexico, with 160Km of coastline and tropical beauty. The bay is located in the central region of the Pacific coast line of Mexico known as, "The Rivera." Puerto Vallarta is located in the Northwest corner of the state of Jalisco (it's a small city with a population of approximately 350,000 residents which blend both tranquillity and enchantment).
The event that opened wide the doors to progress, popularity and fame was the filming of the movie "Night of the Iguana" by John Huston in 1963. Many of the cast members erected vacation homes in PV. The area, now called Gringo Gulch, is the former home of Elizabeth Taylor.
Today Puerto Vallarta has hotels that range from small economical inns to magnificent luxury hotels. Important national and international airline companies provide services that connect Vallarta to the principal cities of the U.S. and Europe. Visitors to Puerto Vallarta will find the climate agreeable year round. The average temperature is 80 degrees F (or about 25 C). The rainy season lasts from the middle of June to the middle of September, but the sun shines pretty much every day.
