Puerto Vallarta remains a popular Mexican holiday spot, but Nuevo Vallarta deserves just as much attention.

Nuevo, which is Spanish for new, fresh, and novel, offers a vacation that’s just that: new, fresh and novel.

Nuevo Vallarta Nayarit is nestled between a tranquil spot of the Pacific Ocean and the Sierra de Vallejo Mountains, only a 20-minute drive from the Puerto Vallarta airport. Where Puerto Vallarta offers colonial architecture and Mexican culture in more of a city setting, Nuevo Vallarta is a relaxed atmosphere with a long, sandy, swimmable beach.

Nuevo Vallarta, Puerto Vallarta

In fact, Nuevo Vallarta is one of the most visited and exclusive beach destinations in all of Mexico, but it still holds the 2019 Earth Check Silver Certification. There’s a lot to do, with beach sports, golf, snorkelling and surfing. You can head north to Bucerias, Sayulita and other tourist destinations, and you’re still close enough to enjoy all that Puerto Vallarta has to offer.

Or simply lay back on the three-mile-long golden beach, revealing in the turquoise-blue ocean and fine sands.

If you choose to stay at the Reflect Krystal Grand Nuevo Vallarta, you’ll be perfectly situated on that pristine, golden-sand beach with spectacular views of Banderas Bay, and just 30 minutes from Puerto Vallarta. Choose your room with resort, tropical, pool, or ocean views, or get one of the Junior Suite Swim Out rooms, featuring spacious accommodations and the opportunity to step into a sparkling pool right from the terrace.

Choose from several dining options or snack bars, and several bars and lounges, including the adults-only Sky Lounge, a rooftop bar offering panoramic views of the Banderas Bay and Sierra Madre mountains. Three heated pools give you a choice between a family pool, an adults-only pool, and an infinity pool.

Kids will enjoy the Explorer’s Club and there’s also a Core Zone Teen’s Club, while adults will appreciate the spa. From the resort, you can access all the area has to offer, with adventurous excursions including sport fishing, or eco-adventure tours, or world-class golf. Or get into bird watching with the wide variety of species that enjoy the area’s warm, sub-humid tropical climate as much as you will.
