We returned to Casa Velas for the 2nd year in a row & we were even more happy with our stay this time! It s the most quiet & peaceful resort we have ever stayed at. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway, this is the place to go! The grounds & accommodations are beautiful & the staff could not be more helpful and pleasant! We will be back at Casa Velas again!
A Honeymoon Well Spent
We spent our honeymoon here and couldn't have been happier. Everything from the staff to the bathroom cleanliness was excellent. The food was delicious, the pool and beach club were gorgeous, and the service was incredible. We also used the spa for a couples treatment and were dazzled by the amenities and staff. The location and security were also fantastic. Very close to the marina and it's nightlife, while being only a short drive from the central Puerto Vallarta boardwalk. Finally, the on-site activities were a joy. Each night there was a new theme (e.g. a "Cuba" night, a casino night, etc.) and we loved them all. It was a truly wonderful experience and I wouldn't recommend staying anywhere else.
The freshest catch: How to pick the best seafood by season
Although this amazing resort destination is teeming with glittering beaches, championship golf courses, and adrenaline-pumping outdoor adventures, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico also offers an incredible culinary scene with the freshest selection of seafood in the country. With an ideal location along the Pacific Coast, people flock to this seaside gem to experience pristine fishing conditions and spectacular seafood restaurants ranging from casual crab shacks to upscale fine dining.
This former quaint fishing village is home to countless species in the sea. Chefs, fisherman, and locals, head out daily to stock up on fresh locally-caught fish and seafood year-round for their ever-changing menus. If visiting Puerto Vallarta in the winter months, expect to find fresh Wahoo, Amberjack, Yellow Fin Tuna, and Crabs on the menu. Autumn months bring Red Snapper and Marlin, while summer months are for Tuna and Grouper. Fishes like Mahi Mahi can be found in the Pacific from July to December, so nice, they say it twice.
Our all-inclusive restaurants at Casa Velas feature locally-caught seafood in each dining venue, from fish tacos at the Beach Club Bar to Risotto Frutti di Mare at Emiliano's. If stepping out, check out a few of the best seafood restaurants in Puerto Vallarta guaranteed to make your mouth water. Sample everything from ceviche to lavish fish entrees at Barracuda. Enjoy shrimp served in every style at Blue Shrimp, get a mix of authentic Mexican and seafood at 8 Tostadas, and feast on all-you-can-eat fish and chips at Joe Jack's Fish Shack.
Casa Velas is situated along the fairways of the Marina Vallarta Golf Club, seconds from the beach and minutes from Puerto Vallarta International Airport. Our adults only all-inclusive resort is also within walking distance of Puerto Vallarta's sophisticated 500-slip marina and 15 minutes from the charming city center.
