Puerto Vallarta was named Friendliest City by Condé Nast Magazine and an estimated 3 million travellers visit it annually. Riviera Nayarit, located close by just a bit north on the coast, in the state of Nayarit is currently Mexico’s most fashionable destination.

The Riviera stretches along 192 miles of the Pacific coast, surrounded by the majestic Sierra Madre Mountains just 10 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta’s International Airport (PVR).

The region extends along the entire coast of the Pacific state of Nayarit & includes places such as Nuevo Vallarta in the Banderas Bay (Bahía de Banderas), the historic colonial town of San Blas, the very exclusive Punta Mita, that offers top-notch resorts and golf and picturesque fishing villages plus a California favorite: the surfing village of Sayulita.

Virgin America strives to offer travelers a unique flying experience, the same way Puerto Vallarta offers visitors a unique and memorable vacation, unlike any other, said Salvador González Resendiz, Mayor of Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco. Puerto Vallarta is the perfect location for their newest warm weather destination. We look forward to complement Virgin America’s excellent services.

Located on Mexico’s Pacific coast, where the states of Jalisco and Nayarit come together, Puerto Vallarta continues to be one of Mexico’s hottest destinations with a rich cultural tradition and town, a historical cobblestone center, family-friendly attractions and 1st first class hotels, resorts and facilities.

We are pleased to welcome the new Virgin America flights from San Francisco, said Marc Murphy, director of the Riviera Nayarit Convention & Visitors Bureau. Riviera Nayarit guests will discover & enjoy a unique holiday experience, complemented by pristine beaches, luxurious accommodations plus excellent service.
