Lush Nuevo Vallarta

A December 2003 trip to Nuevo Vallarta by Bigsneaky

Quote: This is a newer area of Mexico. The resorts there are all first class, but it is an area built for tourists. It doesn't have the charm of Puerto Vallarta, but it is beautiful.

Lush Nuevo Vallarta

Overview

Quote:
The area is a little isolated, and unless you rent a car, you probably won't go much beyond your hotel. The resorts there are all beautiful. Several are all inclusive, but we stayed at the Mayan Palace, which wasn't. We loved the resort. When we left the resort, it was usually to go into Puerto Vallarta, where we could see more of the real Mexican charm and experience a more varied social scene. We also spent a day at the water park across from the Mayan Palace in Puerto Vallarta. Our young children had a great time there (and so did we).

Quick Tips:

Best Way To Get Around:

Rent a car.

Restaurant | "Eating at Mayan Palace"

Quote:
We had several meals at the resort at different restaurants there. The food was always prepared nicely, although we usually found it a little expensive. There is quite a lot of choice, and a lovely restaurant near the beach for a romantic dinner of fine food and the poolside lunch food is always fresh and good. Each night there is a buffet of specific cuisine at one of the restaurants.
