GOLF VACATIONS IN PUERTO VALLARTA, MEXICO
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico — For the perfect Mexico golf vacation, look no further than Puerto Vallarta, located on Mexico's Pacific Coast along Banderas Bay. Framed by the majestic Sierra Madre Mountains with 40 miles of coastline, Puerto Vallarta is a destination rich in culture and home to many golf courses and championships, gastronomic events, sailing regattas, indigenous culture and prestigious art galleries.
Puerto Vallarta is on the same parallel as Hawaii, thus share the same tropical weather patterns. With nearly 300 sunny days a year, with temperatures averaging 28C or 82F, and nine world class golf courses to choose from, Puerto Vallarta is the ideal golf destination.
Golfers can play golf amidst jungle-rich layouts while admiring the vistas of the Sierra Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. Vista Vallarta, home of the PGA World Cup tournaments, has two 18-hole par 72 signatures courses. One is designed by Jack Nicklaus and the other by Tom Weiskopf. Marina Vallarta Golf Club is an 18-hole par 71 course designed by Joe Finger with views Banderas Bay and located within walking distance from some of Puerto Vallarta's finest resorts. Other golf courses in the area include the Jack Nicklaus and Greg Norman courses in Punta Mita, the Robert Von Hagge-designed El Tigre and Isla de Navidad, and the Robert Trent Jones El Tamarindo golf course.
For a luxury all-inclusive golf vacation, Velas Resorts offers three options in the Vallarta area and golf privileges for guests at the Marina Vallarta and the two Vista Vallarta golf courses.
