Puerto Vallarta is a famous port of call on repositioning cruises. It is a resort town located on Bahia de Banderas. This safe and friendly town is one of the best cities in Mexico. It is not an artificial tourist trap, but more a city that became an amazing beach destination by luck when it was discovered by Hollywood in the ’60’s. Vallarta has lovely resorts, a great old town and lots of great attractions to visit in the near area. Read the Vallarta cruise port guide underneath.
