In Puerto Vallarta
If you are planning a wedding on the beach and looking for a romantic beach venue and honeymoon destination, Puerto Vallarta is the place to be! In this Mexican seaside resort, couples will find white sand beaches, crystal blue waters, plenty of sunshine, safe streets, friendly locals and an Old Mexico charm that is both warm and welcoming. It is a top wedding destination for your destination wedding on the beach.
Although it was founded in 1851, one could say Puerto Vallarta was discovered by John Huston, who came here to film “Night of the Iguana” in 1964. The scandal created by Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton’s extramarital love affair not only generated a considerable buzz, but also put the town on the map. And fans of the old TV show “The Love Boat” will remember the town as a frequently mentioned port of call.
Puerto Vallarta is composed of an old section and a new one, divided by the Cuale River but joined by a bridge. Near the Centro is El Malecon, a seaside path along the shore of Banderas Bay. This lovers’ dream of a walkway is popular at sunset, and photographers are everywhere – snapping pictures of the sculptures, the landmark Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe, or the children, street performers, food vendors and artisans that mill around the wide boardwalk.
As one of Mexico’s top wedding destinations, Puerto Vallarta also offers plenty of opportunities for great dining, both on the beaches and around town. Boasting hundreds of restaurants and a sizzling nightlife, Puerto Vallarta will add a taste of Mexico to your destination wedding and spice up your tropical honeymoon. Puerto Vallarta is an affordable wedding destination making it one of Mexico’s best places for destination weddings.
You and your new spouse can spend every moment of your tropical honeymoon enjoying the many exciting things to do in Puerto Vallarta. A pleasant climate and great scenic beauty make outdoor recreation limitless. Every imaginable water sport is available along Banderas Bay’s miles of sandy shore, and visits to offshore islands, remote jungle coves, snorkeling cruises, and inland eco-adventures are offered by a diverse assortment of professional tour operators.
For those who just want to relax, Puerto Vallarta’s many golden sand beaches offer one of the best ways to experience the beauty, romance and magic of the Bay of Banderas. The Banderas Bay area is one of the few places on Earth that can boast an “ideal” climate, with 322 days of sunshine annually and an average temperature of 80 degrees F.
Safe, clean and welcoming, Puerto Vallarta offers the perfect location for fantastic weddings on the beach. Offering an extremely wide variety of attractions and entertainment options, Puerto Vallarta’s many special places and the people who live here will add unforgettable memories to your beach destination wedding celebration.
