The Best Places to Stay in Puerto Vallarta Based on Your Lifestyle


It can be hard to pick the right hotel to stay at when traveling. Some people just pick the cheapest they can find on travel sites, but is that really giving you the best vacation? Sometimes, it’s worth spending a little more to have the perfect getaway. Your lifestyle and living habits should always come into consideration when you are booking a hotel, as well. For instance, if you’re looking for a fun time in an adult-heavy environment, you wouldn’t book a family resort known for having children running around. Well, we were just in Puerto Vallarta, and we have the 4-1-1 on the best places to stay based on your lifestyle. Whether you’re looking for a nice family getaway, a more relaxing retreat away from children, or an alternative home base for your vacation, we have you covered.

There are pools where children are not allowed, and overall, it’s more of an adult spot. The peaceful atmosphere of this resort places you right in the middle of the mountain and trees, overlooking the ocean. And, for those who love a good meal, the upscale restaurants at the Grand Miramar are perfect for everyone. Eugenia Restaurant offers a breathtaking view of the ocean and offers a sophisticated menu.
