WINNER: Puerto Vallarta
First brought to the attention of the world in the 1960s by Hollywood stars Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, Puerto Vallarta maintains a strong appeal among vacationers. The city's choice location on the picturesque Bahia de Banderas as well as its cobblestone streets, white-walled houses, wrought-iron balconies and red-tiled roofs give the city its signature look. This is one of Mexico's top dining destinations, with a reputation for great restaurants, from high-end gourmet restaurants to low cost eateries.
Our readers say: "We love Puerto Vallarta because there are a variety of beaches to choose from in the city and even more in outlying areas. Beaches in Puerto Vallarta are steps away from local restaurants and shops so we can enjoy the sun, waves and local food at the same time, without having to travel very far."
