Puerto Vallarta is a great place for family vacations. It is a small quiet town where the main attraction is the Malecon. You can take a walk while shopping handcrafts, like glass made (frames, plates, lamps). The place's decor is colonial all the places are white with a red stripe. There are not that many nightclubs.

It has a great view of the bay. It's a small place, but very nice and charmomh. There's not too much variety, but the tastes are great. I highly recommend the New York steak and the bean soup.

That an excellent place for fine dining. They have a buffet or a la carte; the best is that they have a different theme each night so you can taste Mexican, Chinese, Italian, and any kinds of international cuisine.

Or you can have some drinks at the terrace of the resturant -- they have a very comfortable sofas for you to spend some time with your friends.
