On the Pacific Coast of Mexico in the state of Jalisco lies a tropical paradise known for its vibrant sunsets, Sierra Madre mountain views, giant rubber trees, Elizabeth Taylor lore, rich Huichol culture and thriving LGBTQ scene. Puerto Vallarta boasts a large expat population, fascinating art galleries, excellent restaurants and plenty of bars and cafés where guests can stick their toes in the sand while sipping a cold michelada. The resort attracts a diverse clientele, from luxury seekers drawn to five-star resorts and shoppers hunting for knickknacks and artisanal crafts to party people, adventurers and, of course, those who never want to leave the ocean.
