Hillside homes in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Puerto Vallarta

They say that paradise is a state of mind. When all of the ingredients are of the highest quality, it can also be a place. Puerto Vallarta qualifies for this high distinction and offers honeymoon couples an abundance of culture - a fusion of traditional and luxury that offers amenities and attractions not readily available in any other part of Mexico and perhaps not in the world. Relatively unknown until 1963 when Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor helped put it on the map during the shooting of John Huston's Night of the Iguana, Puerto Vallarta has become one of the top honeymoon destinations in all of Mexico.

For couples seeking a destination wedding, Puerto Vallarta will provide them with numerous options, from the luxurious to the all-inclusive options that make it easy for wedding guests to attend the big event.

Geography and Environment
Climate and Weather
Weather hovers in the mid 80's (30ÂșC) for much of "high season," giving way to rainy summer season from late June to early October. Some folks even prefer those months, delighting in the electrical storms that produce an orchestra of lightning that dances throughout the sky. Then, it's back to those glorious sunsets that attract "visitantes" to every rooftop across the town. As the sun sinks, everyone waits to see if the proverbial "green flash" will be visible.

My absolute favorite part of Mexico! It sits at the foot of the Sierra Madre Mountains with the white stucco buildings and red clay tile roofs dotting the mountainside everywhere. The hotels are on the beach surrounding Banderas Bay, noted for the whales...
