Puerto Vallarta is a famous port of call on repositioning cruises. It is a resort town located on Bahia de Banderas. This safe and friendly town is one of the best cities in Mexico. It is not an artificial tourist trap, but more a city that became an amazing beach destination by luck when it was discovered by Hollywood in the ’60’s. Vallarta has lovely resorts, a great old town and lots of great attractions to visit in the near area. Read the Vallarta cruise port guide underneath.
Cruise ships dock at the Puerto Vallarta cruise port at the north side of town. You will find a great welcoming center here that offers taxi service, souvenir shops, ATM and lots more. Because there are several docking locations it is not sure whether or not your cruise ship will dock in front of the main cruise terminal.
