Nuevo Vallarta


Nuevo Vallarta is a ¨Tourist Made¨ village, located on the Bay of Banderas (the 2nd largest bay in the world), about a 30 minute drive from the popular city of Puerto Vallarta.

Unlike Puerto Vallarta, Nuevo Vallarta has little history and basically comprises of two marinas and several large beachside hotels. A world-class golf course and pricey new residential developments also flank the area.

One of the biggest hotels in Nuevo Vallarta is the massive and children-friendly Paradise Village. It has three swimming pools...

Mayan-themed architecture....

Tropical grounds (Nuevo Vallarta itself it situated directly on the Tropic of Capricorn) with free-growing tropical plants such as Coconut Palms, Mangos and Banana trees...

And it even has a zoo (although you can´t help but feel sorry for the Tigers)

The best part of the hotel though, is the fact that over the last few days, we were able to dock at their marina. Located on a crocodile infested estuary (no joke), we enjoyed all the benefits of the hotel, while I was basking in the fact that the boat no longer moves as it is securely tethered to the dock.

Unfortunately, the fact that the marina is extremely busy and usually is booked 6 months ahead of time (we were lucky to even stay here 5 nights), we had to be off the next day to anchor my boat off of the quaint pueblo of La Cruz. Back to being a slave to the ocean swells again, but the only consulation is the fact that La Cruz is an authentic Mexican village that doesn´t cater to fat and arrogant North American tourists.

Hasta Luego!


Hope you enjoyed this tropical punchy post - there is more to come on Nuevo Vallarta this week.

Actually the Paradise Village Resort is very family friendly. I was there during the Thanksgiving weekend and it was packed to the doors with kids. They had so many activities for them too, every hour something new for them to do.

Plus the kids pool (shown in picture) had the coolest crocodile slides and ropebridge. I think the resort is catered more towards families than anything.

Oh lawdie! I am currently sitting at work on a cloudy day in Atlanta. Even though I usually hate touristy, beachy places, Nuevo Vallarta sounds heavenly- especially the way you guys are doing it- on a boat! So very cool!

Puerto Vallarta always makes me think of "Night of the Iguana"- the movie based on the Tennessee Williams play. It was shot in Puerto Vallarta before it became all touristy- and is soooo beautiful.

Can't wait to see more pics from your trip!
