Puerto Vallarta has always been a vacation hot spot, with millions of people arriving on Mexico’s sun-kissed shores to party and relax. Whether throwing off the shackles and heading to your favorite bar, nightclub, or casino or simply kicking off your shoes to feel the sand beneath your toes, Puerto Vallarta is the perfect destination.
And while a change is as good as a rest from the humdrum of everyday life, for some, arriving in paradise is the ideal opportunity to refresh and recharge the batteries by choosing a different type of holiday, such as attending yoga classes or a retreat.
