Puerto Vallarta is not only a geographically diverse playground with mountains, ocean, tropical rainforest and all their secrets to discover, it’s a soulful Mexican town rich with fascinating customs and traditions. There are many top-notch restaurants and nightclubs to satisfy those interested in experiencing one of the best resort locations in the world. Take a stroll along the Malecon, the eleven-block long seaside promenade that contains art exhibitions, music, dance, theater and mime performances and an eclectic assortment of monumental public art. A boat ride out to Los Arcos or Islas Marietas to dive and snorkel provides a good chance of seeing sea turtles, manta rays, and dolphins. The average temperature for Puerto Vallarta in January is 26.7 °C.
