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.
In addition to the churches, museums, and historical landmarks that line El Malecon, the esplanade is best known among tourists for its iconic street art and sculptures. Featuring nine sculptures along the promenade, each crafted by locals and Mexican artists, popular sites include "The Rotunda of The Sea," the "Vallarta Dancers," and "The Seahorse," which is a ten-foot tall symbol of the city and surrounded by colorful "Puerto Vallarta" signage art.
While the pedestrian-only esplanade is perfect for strolling and ocean views, the 12-block area is home to a few Puerto Vallarta landmarks including the El Faro Lighthouse, the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Los Arcos, and the Naval History Museum. Along the way you'll also find a few art galleries and street-performing staples.
