The beaches of Nuevo Vallarta begin four miles north of the international Puerto Vallarta airport, overlooking the blue-water Banderas Bay. Luxury villas, estates and resorts line the three-mile stretch of long, sandy beach where the fresh waters of the Ameca River meet the Pacific Ocean. Nuevo Vallarta is home to four championship golf courses, including one designed by Greg Norman and one by Jack Nicklaus, as well as two state-of-the-art marinas that can accommodate nearly 500 vessels. Homes are situated along the beach, fairways and marina canals, offering an array of architectural styles, view corridors and private docking piers. Within close reach are Nuevo Vallarta’s numerous restaurants, ranging from casual, authentic Mexican favorites to award-winning, internationally acclaimed restaurants. The warm, sub-humid tropical climate is ideal for year-round exploration and adventure, whether surfing, snorkeling, windsurfing or taking in the area’s abundant wildlife and tropical gardens.
