Puerto Vallarta is located at the Pacific Coast, approximately 190 miles from Guadalajara, at the Western side of the State of Jalisco. Its geographic location is enviable: a huge bay at the Pacific Ocean, with its blue waters of all blue tones on one side, and a mountain, with fresh temperatures, rivers, cascades and steep lands ready to be conquered on the other.
Both day and night, the Vallarta Marina offers a bright landscape full of glamour and elegance that cannot be missed. A variety of attractions are ready to greet the welcomed visitor, ranging from world-class golf, an exclusive hotel zone, a boardwalk with a wide variety of restaurants and a lighthouse that offers spectacular views.
Zona Norte has the biggest hotel and business offering, among which are: shopping centres, self-service stores, cinemas, cafes, crafts, a wide variety of restaurants, as well as miles of beautiful beaches. From the top of the hills it is possible to enjoy excellent views of the two world-class 18-hole golf courses; Marina Vallarta Golf Club and Vista Vallarta Golf Club.
Marina Vallarta is an 18-hole course designed by the famous American architect, Joe Finger, and located in the marina area of the district of Puerto Vallarta. It’s marvellous mix of the typical tropical ambience of the Pacific coast with views of the Sierra Madre and Banderas Bay make it a must visit.
Its spectacular hacienda-style clubhouse is located just a few minutes from the most important hotels in Puerto Vallarta. Each year, Marina Vallarta Club de Golf hosts the International Pro AM, one of the largest Pro Am tournaments in the world, each December.
Opened in April 2001, the first course at Vista Vallarta is a signature design by Jack Nicklaus. Since this course is located on the property’s highest elevation, golfers are treated not only to world-class golf, but will enjoy breath-taking views of Puerto Vallarta, the Marina and Banderas Bay as well.
The second course on the property is a signature design by Tom Weiskopf, which opened November 1, 2001. The Weiskopf Course provides Vista Vallarta with a dramatic contrast from its first course. Built on the property’s lower west end, golfers won't believe they have simply taken a different turn from the clubhouse because the terrain includes dense jungles, deep ravines and swift creeks.
