Just north of Puerto Vallarta on Banderas Bay, you will discover a hidden paradise of colorful flowers, statuesque palms and the indigenous Huanacaxtle tree. Vallarta Gardens is a tropical oasis where you can recharge, or just relax. Step into your residence to be surrounded by over 6,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor living space. Clean, whitewashed walls, chestnut-colored woods, and state-of-the-art amenities are only some of the delights in your tranquil hideaway. Just outside, a cobblestone walking path leads you past lush tropical botanicals small pools and over bridges, until you come upon sparkling infinity pool and a sandy white beach. For more excitement, take a canopy tour through the tropical rainforest treetops, set sail from the nearby yacht club, or visit nearby villages to shop for Huichol Indian art and jewelry. At day’s end, after an ocean sunset dinner, retreat to your spacious quarters to be gently lulled to sleep by whispering tides. Convenient for year-round vacationers, the area is protected from inclement weather by the Sierra Madres, and averages over 300 days of sunshine. And unlike many other Mexican beaches, a wave-breaker makes for safer swimming in the bay.
