Seniors Travel to Puerto Vallarta

Jul 20th, 2011 | By James E Becker | Category: Senior Travel

This is one neat city. I recall well the many cobble stone streets and the fact that it is right on the water.  It has been a favorite place for senior tourists for a number of years.  Some just call it “Vallarta” and everyone knows the meaning.  We folks up north often refer to it as P.V.

Puerto Vallarta is a Mexican balneario, a resort city situated on the Pacific Ocean’s Bahía de Banderas. The 2010 census reported Puerto Vallarta’s population as 255,725 making it the sixth-largest city in the state of Jalisco.  Around the Bay, beautiful beaches, lush jungles and sparkling waterfalls offer many opportunities for the adventurous, while five star resorts, world-class shopping and gourmet restaurants satisfy even the most sophisticated traveler. Stretching from the south end of Old Town to central downtown, a newly extended and refurbished boardwalk along the ocean, called the Malecon, passes by any number of shops, restaurants, and hotels, and often plays host to mimes, break-dancers, clowns and artists.  By reputation, the second of Mexico’s beach resorts, Puerto Vallarta may be smaller and younger than Acapulco, but it is every bit as commercial – and perhaps even more so, since here tourism is virtually the only source of income.

You will not have any trouble communicating here as English is widely spoken  however tourist destination prices are higher than many other places in Mexico.  Puerto Vallarta is very crowded at holiday times. Puerto Vallarta has something special for all seniors, regardless of your personal preferences.  Puerto Vallarta is yours to discover and is, without a doubt, one of the friendliest and cleanest beach destinations in all of Mexico. There are many cultural events and exhibits, exciting day trips to the jungle, relaxing days at the beach and countless romantic hideaways. Adios.  jeb
