Eat, Sleep and Play in Marina Vallarta

Marina Vallarta is a charming area that is located just 2 minutes from the international airport and 15 minutes from down town Puerto Vallarta.

The marina hosts many luxury yachts and sailboats in its 450 slips. Some of the boats are here year round, while others are here for a season, or just a day or two to rest before continuing on their journey.

The marina has a beautiful boardwalk lined with many shops, spas, and restaurants which makes it a great place for window shopping, people watching and enjoying a good meal. It is also the place where you can book a fishing trip with one of the many fishing charter companies in Puerto Vallarta.

Here in the marina you will find restaurants in every price range to suit all budgets. There are a couple of places that specialize in breakfast, while other restaurants only open in the evenings.

You will find Seafood, Italian, Chinese, and Mexican restaurant options to choose from, as well as a couple of sports bars, where you can keep up on Hockey, Football, Soccer, UFC etc.

One of my favorite places in the marina is the lighthouse (El Faro). At the top of the lighthouse you will find a bar with a 360 degree lookout for your viewing pleasure.

The lighthouse is the perfect place for a meeting point with friends or to take that special someone on a date.

The view from on top of the light house (El Faro) is absolutely beautiful and the drinks are very reasonably priced so everyone can enjoy it!

There are a handful of 4 and 5 star hotels that line the beach and entrance to the marina, so if you happen to be staying in one of these hotels make sure to take a walk to the marina and see what it is all about!

If you rented a condo in the marina then you will most likely have a patio with a front row view where you can enjoy a cocktail and watch the sunset. If you are not staying in one of the hotels or condos here, it is worth the trip to spend a wonderful day or an evening.
