The City of the Golden Beaches
Golden sand, green hills and a fantastic tropical climate, the perfect place for a holiday filled with sun, sea and cocktails on the beach.
Puerto Vallarta, in the heart of Mexico's largest bay, is a pleasant paradise that combines various locations, each with its own character and special charm. During your MSC World Cruise, you will have the opportunity to disembark in a land full of pleasant amenities accompanied by the lush greenery of the Sierra Madre.
In the far south of Puerto Vallarta can be found the picturesque Romántica Zone, where the famous Malecón lies. Its boardwalk, the main attraction of the village, is characterized by artistic paving in the form of drawings made out of pebbles. It is here, on this coast, that you can find the emblematic sea horse, one of several bronze sculptures that overlook a breathtaking view. The tour will continue with a stop at the famous Olas Altas Beach, ideal for swimming, but above all for surfing or snorkeling.
The Mexican coast does not offer just any old normal beaches, but real treasures for lovers of the natural beauties of the ocean, beauties that can be enjoyed thanks to your MSC Cruise. Puerto Vallarta also hides another precious jewel, the most attractive of the city's landmarks. Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, whose bell tower rises majestically above the other buildings, is surmounted by a wrought iron crown held up by angels, specifically designed to look like the one worn by Empress Charlotte of Mexico.
How many wonders can you discover, explore, and fall in love with thanks to a cruise ship and an MSC World holiday.
