Puerto Vallarta

  • Puerto Vallarta was popularized in the 1960's as a top destination for Hollywood elite but over the years faded a bit as it was eclipsed by other parts of Mexico where fancy mega resorts were built (including Riviera Nayarit... just a few miles north). My visit was hosted by Puerto Vallarta Tourism and Casa Velas resort, but after spending a week here and exploring it a bit, I was impressed since unlike other "tourist towns". Unlike other places that I've visited in Mexico, Puerto Vallarta is more than just mega resorts with all-inclusive packages designed for rich Americans. Instead, it's a real city with great culture and tons of opportunities for guys to have fun. Here are some of the top reasons why it makes a fantastic destination for your next guys getaway.

  • We were really impressed by our visit to Casa Velas in Puerto Vallarta Mexico, but what we didn't realize is that they have some awesome bachelor party and mancation packages too. While resorts like Casa Velas have unlimited golf packages, they also offer golf and fishing packages, in-room cocktail parties, taco bars, and even Guacamania...

  • Honestly, even though I was with a tour group I was a bit afraid to tour Puerto Vallarta at night. Unfortunately Mexico doesn't have the best reputation these days but thankfully I ignored those concerns because I had an awesome experience that was safe, clean, and tourist friendly. While I'm sure that most of you could wander around and explore the Puerto Vallarta food scene on your own - it was so much easier to do with the folks at Vallarta Food Tours who guided us and made everything easy.

  • Just in case you needed another excuse to play in the sun down in Puerto Vallarta, the CasaMagna Marriott sends word that they have launched a new tequila appreciation program titled Secretos de la Familia and they are one of the few resorts in the world where agave azul is actually grown on the grounds and used for making their very own tequila.

    According to the General Manager, the resort boasts an enormous library of this spirit including 114 tequilas regularly available by the glass and a Tequila Sommelier who hosts regular tasting classes for the guests.
