Puerto Vallarta Staycation


Airing: Episode 487, Week of Saturday March 30

This week’s spotlight we’re taking you to a tropical getaway that has caught the attention of Hollywood oceanographers and famous chefs from around the world. David Wiley takes us to beautiful Puerto Vallarta.

The world’s most famous oceanographer Jacques Cousteau once called Puerto Vallarta the jewel of the ocean, for its beautiful beaches, lush jungles and sparkling waterfalls. For us paradise is just a short trip away, it’s only two hours and 15 minutes to get to Puerto Vallarta from San Francisco. It’s only two hours and 45 minutes from Chicago.

Westin Resort & Spa is one of many plush resorts that offer the perfect romantic setting. Puerto Vallarta’s world-class resorts have you covered

Puerto Vallarta Adventures has excursions that include the signature dolphin experience, where you can get in the water and swim with the dolphins. More than anything it’s about interacting, it’s about learning, it’s about education and even sampling a little of the homegrown tequila-moonshine, Raicilla.

While you shop along the cobblestone streets, visit the art galleries, play golf or enjoy the nightlife. Along the boardwalk the city feels more like a Mexican town and less like a tourist trap. This is exactly the appeal.

Puerto Vallarta also hosts the only international gourmet festival attracting chefs from all over the world. Puerto Vallarta is quite simply one of the most beautiful cultured luxurious vacation spots in all of Mexico and whatever your desires from high-end luxury living to affordable all-inclusive resorts Puerto Vallarta really has something for everyone.
