Withdraw to a wondrous world of silky white sands, turquoise blue waters and rugged jungle terrain. Made famous in the 1960's during the filming of "The Night of the Iguana" starring Richard Burton, Puerto Vallarta is a popular contemporary coastal resort town, which still magically manages to retain a hint of its traditional Mexican charm. Sunbathe or swim in the over 100 miles of scenic coastline, soar from treetop to treetop on a thrilling zip-line, or horseback ride through mountainous jungle terrain. Shop, sightsee or delight in some authentic Mexican cuisine amidst the popular neighborhood of Olas Altas, or embark on a delightful tour of a famous tequila factory.
