The rapid growth of Nuevo Vallarta has resulted in a delightful offering of vacation rentals in every conceivable size, locale and assortment of amenities. Large oceanfront resort condos, private seaside haciendas and golf villas provide family-friendly accommodations with seaside balconies, gourmet kitchens and easy access to sterling golf courses.
With a mix of contemporary and Mayan-influenced designs in a gorgeous natural setting, Nuevo Vallarta has blossomed into one of the most popular, luxury tourist destinations on the Mexican Pacific. Sleek yachts and sailboats line the modern marina with some available for wonderful family excursions to watch the dolphins swim alongside in the Bay of Banderas and Pacific Ocean. From December to March, humpback whales are frequently seen by the pampered “sailors”, who mix sightseeing with lunch and drinks on board. Whether you choose a boat tour along the river or rent your own small boat, there’s an abundance of sights and experiences to enjoy. Choose from several golf courses – El Tigre and Flamingos are two popular courses to challenge your game. Tour centers provide guided excursions and day trips to surrounding cities, through the mountains and to secluded beaches. You might even try your hand at kite-sailing!
Naturally shopping in this upscale resort includes designer apparel and jewelry, but local handicrafts and fine leatherwork and silver creations are popular, as well. Dining choices cover the spectrum from posh resort steakhouses and beachside seafood to off-the-beaten path Ernestos Good Grub for local color and cuisine. For late night romantic dining outdoors, try the scenic Insu Sky Bar and Pool Lounge. The nightlife in Nuevo Vallarta picks up the wild pulse with everything from elaborate resort and Marina discos to bars and restaurants with a decidedly Latin flair.
For genuine luxury and pampering, your family would certainly enjoy a 5,000-square-foot home with a sparkling pool and even a personal chef available. For couples and families, one to four bedroom beachfront condos place you at the center of activity. Whatever your choice, the privacy, space and complete amenities vacation homes offer benefits you simply won’t find in hotel stays.
