Located just a few minutes north of Puerto Vallarta, Nuevo Vallarta was originally conceived by the Mexican government as a planned residential-resort with luxury villas that surround the area’s estuary canals that evoke Florida. Other residences are lined up next to golf courses. Many deluxe hotels and resorts line up its three-mile long sandy beach, and several shopping centers with all sorts of amenities (supermarkets, health clubs, cyber cafés and banks among them) complement the Nuevo Vallarta experience, making of this community a destination of it’s own.
In addition, with well-equipped marinas and a very social yacht club, Nuevo Vallarta strongly appeals to full-time and temporary Mexican and international residents that enjoy nautical activities, such as sailing, yachting and surfing. In contrast to bustling Puerto Vallarta, this area is super quiet and peaceful, offering luxurious privacy.
Nuevo Vallarta is located just north of Puerto Vallarta, in Riviera Nayarit, along the Carr. 200 Norte highway. From the highway, there are two exits that lead to Nuevo Vallarta, and a third one further north, in Flamingos. Public transportation is available back and forth through the day, and it’s proximity to Puerto Vallarta places PV’s amenities just a short cab ride away, and vice-versa.
