Palladium Vallarta Resort & Spa is located in a heavenly setting, surrounded by lush native vegetation and with a private beach front extending along a straight 300m of fine white sand bathed by the beautiful waters of the Pacific Ocean.
The hotel has a Mexican decor and is an ideal choice for getting away and enjoying a wonderful rest after a day’s walk around Banderas Bay or playing golf at any one of the internationally renowned golf courses available in the area.
As with all Grand Palladium Hotels, when building the hotel, both the flora and fauna of the area were taken into consideration and all the hotel buildings are completely integrated with the vegetation, thus avoiding indiscriminate felling of trees.
Puerto Vallarta is a municipality and tourist city in the state of Jalisco, Mexico, and is located in the Banderas Bay on the Pacific Ocean. In 2003, Puerto Vallarta had an estimated population of 165,800 people. It is the second most important economic area in the state of Jalisco and it is the third most important port of Mexico. Currently it is one of the most visited areas of the country and boasts wonderful five star hotels that host more than five million tourists a year.
Tourism is one of the principal factors for the economic development of this municipality. Puerto Vallarta offers its inhabitants and visitors a great number of beaches in addition to its impressive natural beauty and historical monuments and art works which attract many national and foreign tourists. Tourism is well developed in Puerto Vallarta, as the municipality also boasts archaeological and ecological areas as well as mountains with beautiful scenery, making the area very attractive for this type of economic activity.
What makes Puerto Vallarta different from Cancun (another important tourist destination in Mexico) is that it was a traditional village before becoming an international tourist destination.
