Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
For centuries, Puerto Vallarta was a sleepy fishing village. Then director John Huston chose the village as the location for his film "Night of the Iguana," starring Richard Burton. Puerto Vallarta was sleepy no more; its transformation into an international resort had begun. Today, the city has its own "Gringo Gulch," a haunt of the rich and famous. Travelers are also drawn by its climate, its excellent shopping — great values on leather goods, jewelry and handicrafts — and mile after mile of palm-lined beaches.
Bahia de las Banderas
Spend the afternoon on its powdery beaches and in its glistening blue waters.
In nearby Nuevo Vallarta, Dolphin Adventure is an educational center where you can have an up-close and personal experience with Bottlenose dolphins and sea lions.
Travel just outside the city for a tour of a tropical forest in the shadow of the Sierra Madre Mountains.
