Puerto Vallarta has quickly moved to the top of our list of “Must Visit Places.” We love that the locale combines the romance of tropical beaches with the excitement and flare of a uniquely cultural experience! Today, we are excited to share with you “Puerto Vallarta, Mexico’s Romantic Destination Sweepstakes.” Because this beautiful city is the perfect setting in which to celebrate a unique and unforgettable wedding, honeymoon or anniversary, the sweepstakes will give to one lucky couple a stay at Puerto Vallarta’s Hilton or Velas Vallarta with a Rhythms of the Night or Luxury Sunset Sailing activity with Vallarta Adventure and a dolphin experience with Dolphin Discovery. If you love a good adventure, then this is absolutely the sweepstakes for you.
One of the things we love about Puerto Vallarta is its proximity to most major US cities. While there for your wedding, the location is also perfect for memorable bachelor and bachelorette parties! With excursions like golf, water sports, or even a boat trip to Yelapa where you can hike to waterfalls through the jungle, fish and swim in the calm waters, and visit the local village. There is even a local yoga studio that take place in a renovated home. You can even enjoy yoga on a rooftop studio overlooking the city, while you relax and prep for the big day! Of course, there are a ton of ways to pamper yourself too, with a variety of massages and spa treatments.
The best part about choosing a destination wedding and honeymoon is the incredible staff that is behind it all! They’ll plan all of this for you and make the entire process actually FEEL like a vacation!
