Puerto Vallarta: From Fishing Town to One of The Top Most Desirable Cities in Mexico

Puerto Vallarta has rapidly become one the most alluring tropical beach destinations on the continent. Investing in property in Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit has become one of the most sought-after ways to invest in real estate in Mexico, and with good reason. Properties in Puerto Vallarta are almost guaranteed to provide a ROI, particularly if they are purchased as second properties that can be rented out during high tourism season as vacation properties in Vallarta-Nayarit.

Before the iconic movie –Night of the Iguana – was filmed in the early 1960s, Puerto Vallarta was a rural fishing town of less than 15,000 people. There was only one road going in and out of the town, and the drive to Guadalajara took over 16 hours. Today, the drive to Guadalajara takes only 4 hours, which has increased Puerto Vallarta’s accessibility to the fourth biggest city in the country.

Not only has Puerto Vallarta’s accessibility made it such a desirable place to live and vacation, but so has the influx of modern businesses and amenities triggered by the tourism boom after Night of the Iguana. Puerto Vallarta is full of modern shopping centers, grocery stores, movie theatres, exquisite gastronomy, luxury properties and bohemian beach spots. It is also home to a recently revamped cruise ship port and there are plans in the near future to expand its airport as well.

The Puerto Vallarta airport broke its visitors record this year when it over 4.7 million travelers arrived in the city by air alone. The maritime terminal welcomed approximately 330,000 passengers by sea.
