Where to stay in Nuevo Vallarta

Planned and built as a tourist-focused destination to complement nearby Puerto Vallarta, Nuevo Vallarta offers a range of accommodations along its west-facing coast. Several extravagant resorts boasting swimming pools and high-class restaurants vie for the best sunset views, although you can find a few more affordable alternatives--such as private rentals or small "posadas" (inns)--in between the resorts. Look to the southern fringes for the most sought-after options, which line the town's best strip of beach.
