Busy Times in Puerto Vallarta


Puerto Vallarta, tucked neatly into the curve of Banderas Bay on Mexico’s Pacific coast, is becoming more and more popular as a resort destination. The idea of spending some or all of the winter months in a Puerto Vallarta luxury villa rental is especially appealing to visitors from parts of the world where folks look forward to weeks and weeks . . . and weeks of cold and snow up to there. In a fortunate turn of climate-related events, these same winter months are welcomed in Puerto Vallarta for the near-perfect quality of their lovely weather.
