Perhaps it is the contrasting beauty of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico that makes it such a popular vacation destination for those seeking a break from the hustle and bustle of the real world. Here diverse ecosystems converge to create one of the most beautiful and exotic locations in the world. Steamy tropical jungles, rich farmland, soaring mountains, and pristine beaches make Puerto Vallarta a delightful respite for all of the senses.

Aside from the traditional hotel-based vacation, Puerto Vallarta offers another exciting vacation alternative: villas. Sprinkled along natural beaches and nestled in the lush vegetation of the jungle you will find luxurious villas that you can rent for the duration of your vacation. Most villas are complete with private swimming pools, a private chef, and a staff to see to all of your needs. And while you may never want to leave the pampered comfort of your gorgeous villa, the excitement of Puerto Vallarta is never far away.

Puerto Vallarta villas range in size from small, cozy properties perfect for a family to huge mansions complete with 12 bedrooms and all of the amenities you could possibly imagine. Just as villas range greatly in size, they also vary greatly in price. Depending on the property, villas of Puerto Vallarta can be rented for as little as a few hundred dollars per night or as much as $2,000 per night.

If the beauty of your villa and the sinful luxury of having your very own staff do not render you content and lazy for the length of your stay, you will be surprised by the amount of activities available in Puerto Vallarta. You can swim with dolphins in Banderas Bay; hike through the dense, tropical jungle; take a hot balloon tour over the Sierra Madre Mountains; or partake of one of the many water activities including kayaking, snorkeling, and scuba diving. Bird watching and whale watching are also popular activities as are the many cultural attractions to be found in the area.

If you’re seeking a vacation that gets you away from the “real world”, perhaps staying in a standard accommodation hotel isn’t quite the prescription you need. Take your trip one step farther from the crowds and spend your evenings in a quiet, private villa.
