North of Puerto Villarta’s Licenciado Gustavo Díaz Ordaz International Airport, the Ameca River forms the border between the States of Jalisco and Nayarit. The drive from the airport to Nuevo Vallarta, a luxury resort community just across the border from Puerto Villarta, takes fifteen minutes, only slightly longer than the time it takes to repeat the airport’s name three times.
Nuevo Vallarta anchors the Riviera Nayarit, a two hundred mile long stretch coastal beauty extending north to the historic port of San Blas, Nayarit. With its beautiful beaches, superb surfing spots, magnificent mangrove forests, and a rich mix of resorts and traditional communities, the Riviera Nayarit has become one of Mexico’s finest tourist destinations.
In 2013, the AAA gave its top award, Five Diamonds, to one resort in Nuevo Vallarta, the Grand Velas All Suites Resort and Spa. The eight hotels and resorts in Nuevo Vallarta awarded Four Diamond status are listed here.
