Puerto Vallarta began as an authentic fishermen’s community which gathered around Rio Cuale’s captivating natural beauty with cascading water pools and river islands surrounded by lush tropical vegetation. It is in this bucolic setting that the spell of Rio Cuale worked its magic creating the old town of Puerto Vallarta. Time forged a community woven by cobbled-stone streets, whitewashed houses with terra-cotta tile roofs, plazas, markets, churches and riverfront gardens that has captivated generations of world-wide travelers.
Scenes of fishermen’s nets and women washing colorful textiles surrounded by children playing in the Cuale water pools are reminiscing of Vallarta’s early days when in the early 60s when famed director John Houston chose Puerto Vallarta as the quintessential tropical fisherman’s town on the Mexican pacific coast to film his masterpiece ‘The Night of the Iguana” with Richard Burton which quickly attracted the international Jet-Set Royalty including Elizabeth Taylor and many others.
Over the years, Vallarta evolved to become a world-class destination maintaining its village authenticity and local community lifestyle, its cobble stone streets, whitewashed buildings and red tile roofscapes. Today, Vallarta is a cosmopolitan tropical village acting as the heart to a region famed for its international class resorts, golf courses and year-round leisure destination.
