Puerto Vallarta is a Top destination for tourists who love relaxing, golf, scuba diving, adventures and even surfing! But that is not all! It is also one of the top expat and retirement destinations for Americans and Canadians. There are more and more expats living in in Puerto Vallarta every year!
So what does Puerto Vallarta have to offer that is making people want to leave their own country to call Puerto Vallarta home?
Puerto Vallarta is a beach town with miles of charm and beauty. The streets of this Colonial and historical backdrop are paved with Cobblestone giving a simple and traditional feel. ! I should also mention that service and hospitality in Puerto Vallarta are quite amazing since the local people are so welcoming and inviting.
Besides all of the colonial, in-town, charm that Puerto Vallarta holds we must not forget that the beaches are one of the main attractions for this coastline town! Among the most popular area beaches are Los Muertos Beach, Oro Beach and Playa Sayulita.
Surfs up! If you love hitting the waves Mismaloya Beach, about 45 minutes away from Puerto Vallarta center is a prime spot for surfing.

Puerto Vallarta is SAFE!
[I always like to remind people that Mexico is indeed a safe country to visit. But ding ding ding, the statistics are in folks! Mexico has actually some of the lowest numbers in statistics when looking at the numbers compared to the United States, Canada, Australia, some parts of Europe, south Africa, Honduras, Chile, Peru, and the United Kingdom!
