Puerto Vallarta is one of the most popular destinations in Mexico. It was put on the map in the 1960s when Richard Burton and Liz Taylor bought two houses in the centre of the city and connected them with a bridge. The world’s most famous couple made Puerto Vallarta a go-to destination, especially for North Americans.
The perfect climate, excellent food, chic hotels and buzzing nightlife conspire to make Puerto Vallarta an irresistible place. This itinerary will also introduce you to Mexico’s most up and coming destination: Riviera Nayarit. Stunning hotels keep popping up and people are starting to flood in. It’s one of the best places to go to unwind in a luxury beach setting.
Puerto Vallarta is, needless to say, the most popular destination in Latin America for gay travellers. What’s not to like?
A gay-friendly destination, Mexico hosts many same-sex weddings and is a great destination for gay honeymoons. You can have a full legal ceremony as a same-sex couple. You could also opt for a symbolic ceremony and have the legal proceedings done back home. Combining your wedding and honeymoon in Mexico is also a great option.
You’ll land in Mexico City and then transfer directly to Puerto Vallarta. The flight will take around an hour and a half. You’ll then be transferred to your centrally located hotel.
After breakfast you’ll set out on an orientation tour of the city. In the heart of the city you’ll visit Guadalupe church. You’ll then take a stroll down the Malecon – the heart of Puerto Vallarta. The views of Banderas Bay are stunning. There are many colourful shops to explore.
Then, take a stroll around Zona Romantica. At night the bars will be full!
Puerto Vallarta is considered to be the best foodie destination in Mexico outside the capital city. So, today you’ll be setting out on a foodie tour and learn about Mexican cuisine. You’ll also, naturally, eat plenty of it. A light breakfast may be in order.

If you’re feeling adventurous you’ll set out on an AVT tour. An expert guide will be with you all the way. You’ll drive an AVT through the Sierra Madre Mountains and over the world’s longest suspension bridge. It makes for a great adrenalin buzz.
You can, of course, relax at the hotel if AVT drives aren’t your thing.
Today your driver will meet you and take you to Sayulita, a colourful coastal village surrounded by the Sierra Madre. The beach is excellent and a big draw for surfers.
