The Mexican, Pacific Coast, destination of Puerto Vallarta was ranked as one of the “Best Cities in the World” and “Top Small Cities Outside the US” in this year’s Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards. Puerto Vallarta is one of three Mexican cities to be listed in the top 40 cities in the world and one of two Mexican cities to list in the top 20 small cities in the world. Puerto Vallarta is the only beach city to rank in both lists.
This award is particularly prestigious as it’s chosen by the readers. Over 300,000 readers submitted millions of ratings and tens of thousands of comments, sharing their recent travel experiences of the world’s cities, islands, hotels, resorts, cruise lines, airlines, and airports—good or bad.
“We are honored to be included in this exclusive list of international destinations,” said Javier Aranda Pedrero, General Director of the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board. “We believe this is the result of the welcoming atmosphere offered by Puerto Vallarta’s people, the authentic Mexican feel and the surprising diversity of attractions and activities our city offers.”
