It’s only recently that Puerto Vallarta has come to be seen as a steamy, romantic location for a vacation or getaway. Before the filming of Tennessee Williams’ Night of The Iguana (shot by John Huston) Puerto Vallarta was a sleepy fishing village. Now it’s known for the scenery that was the backdrop to Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor’s passionate affair. The whitewashed walls and terracotta roofs overlook picturesque cobblestone streets and flower-trimmed balconies.
The heart of the city is undoubtedly the Plaza Principal and the colonial centre that can be found there. Here young and old alike come together in the heat of the day. If it’s a walk by the seaside that you really want then the historic Malecon is the place to be; this walkway curves along the water’s edge for several blocks and leads, eventually, to an amphitheatre that’s just chock with artists, restaurants and entertainers.
No matter where you are in the city you’ll be able to navigate using the distinctive tower of the church of Our Lady of Guadalupe; this is a stunning building that deserves a visit even if you’re not religious.
