About Nuevo Vallarta - Bathed by the waters of lovely Banderas Bay and sheltered by the imposing Sierra Madre, Nuevo Vallarta on the Nayarit Riviera is one of the most prized tourist destinations of Mexico. One of its unique features is the huge 300 slip marina with about 7 miles of navigable water channels where some have referred to it as “Little Venice”. It brings together luxury and abundance of nature to offer each visitor an enchanting escape with excellent hospitality, comfort, and entertainment. Whether set beachside, among beautiful trees or near golf courses, Owner Direct Vacation Rentals has accommodations with an irresistible invitation to establish Nuevo Vallarta as your next tropical paradise.
Where to Stay & Why - Let Owner Direct help you make a perfect getaway in Nuevo Vallarta by providing options for accommodations tailored to meet your needs. If you’re a couple, then go for condo rentals with one bedroom / one bathroom that comfortably sleeps 2. If vacationing with the family, big or small, or maybe a group of friends, then go for a villa rental that has more room where each and every one can have their own space and privacy.
Why stay in a hotel when you can have a whole house or villa that has its own living room with comfortable furniture, TV with cable, DVD player, and more; there’s a dining suite that is very spacious and has a breakfast bar with stools where guests can sit while someone makes snacks or meals in the open kitchen (where some owners even provide kitchen staples); and there’s an oceanfront deck with extra dining and seating space where you can watch fantastic sunsets while grilling some meat for BBQ night.
Other amenities can include a washer and dryer, parking, WiFi, and if you decide to stay in a condo rental, you can also enjoy the amenities the condominium offers! If you decide to bring your furry pal along, then there are rentals that are pet-friendly.
What to See & Do - Looking to be entertained? Nuevo Vallarta provides everything you expect from a tourist spot. From water to land sports, Humpback whales to free-living dolphins, or even a visit to the turtle reserve, you can be sure to get in touch with nature at its finest. You’ll also find numerous natural sites that will amaze you with their beauty like the Yelapa and Islas Marietas National Park. Discover the best of Nuevo Vallarta by visiting the Malecon and Iglesia de Guadalupe church.
Where to Eat & Drink - Options ranging from high-end eateries to casual restaurants to authentic Mexican spots, and even a gourmet market filled with offerings from all over the world. One thing is for sure - an amazing culinary experience is always just a meal away.
How to Get Here & Getting Around - When flying in, you can get in via the International Airport (Gustavo Dias Ordaz). If you wish to drive to Mexico, it’s fairly easy and is a great way to experience the scenery and terrains Mexico has to offer - once you pass the “Nothing to Declare” lane and get a permit for your car. From East Coast Canada or the US to Nuevo Vallarta, you can cross at the Laredo Border, West or Central through Nogales.
Though there are spots you can get to by walking, your best bet in getting around Nuevo Vallarta is by bus or cab. If you want to maximize your time, then renting a car is another option. Driving around is stress-free and there’s little traffic in the main coastal highway.
When to Go - The best time to visit is January to June when it’s sunny nearly every day but not too blisteringly hot. If you’re interested in whale watching then make a beeline for the coast from January to March. August or September can be a great choice as it starts the off-peak season.
