Things to know before visiting Puerto Vallarta
US citizens do not need a visa when they visit Mexico and Puerto Vallarta. You will need to fill in a small immigration form but these can be picked up before you travel at travel agents or from your airline. The currency is the Mexican peso and one peso is worth one hundred centavos, but the symbol for pesos is the same as that used for US dollars so don’t get confused. Tipping is customary in Mexico but it isn’t mandatory. That said, as salaries are potentially quite modest it would be nice to reward good service and you can tip in both dollars and pesos. However, if you do want to leave dollars please make sure you only leave bills not coins as the locals won’t be able to change them at a casa de cambio.
If you have a flight from New York to Puerto Vallarta or a flight from Los Angeles to Puerto Vallarta, they will land at the international airport just 5 miles from the downtown area. If you are traveling with babies you can leave all your strollers, travel cribs and formula at home as there are excellent baby equipment rental services in this amazing city, and they will even deliver to the airport for your arrival.

What to eat in Puerto Vallarta?
You’ll want to eat like a local when you get to Puerto Vallarta as the dishes are unbeatable. Fish features a great deal because this city is on the coast, and pescado embarazado is an excellent meal to try first. Although the translation is ‘pregnant fish’, the reality is a delicious marlin or school shark grilled on a stick. Another unusually-named food is tortas ahogadas, literally drowned sandwiches, and they are indeed sandwiches. The drowned part comes from the filling, which is usually pork or shrimp, being doused in tomato and chili sauce. Be careful though, the spiciness can be a little daunting for a tourist. If you would like to attempt a proper Mexican spicy feast, book a vacation to Puerto Vallarta with us today and you can see how you fare.
What to bring from Puerto Vallarta?
The best place to shop for your souvenirs is along the Malecon. This allows you to find those precious reminders of your vacation or presents for your friends and family while strolling along the beachfront. Alternatively, you could try haggling at the Cuale Island flea market, where you are bound to find some Talavera pottery or hand-blown glass. Whatever you choose, book your flight and hotel to Puerto Vallarta with us, and you will soon be browsing these exciting Mexican markets.
