Puerto Vallarta is still western Mexico’s top destination for international tourism, but with recent health concerns and Covid 19, travelers have been seeking new experiences far from city centers where they can enjoy the sights and sounds of nature while keeping their distance from crowds.
Many of Puerto Vallarta’s big hotels are concentrated in distinct hotel zones, but many other appealing options are peppered along the scenic coast of Puerto Vallarta’s 400 square mile Banderas Bay.
The travel experts of Best of Banderas Bay have visited every last stretch of this coast including rocky shorelines, hidden beaches, and tiny rural fishing villages. For their category of “Best Hotel for Social Distancing,” they’ve explored many of the hotels accessible only by private yachts or “pangas,” the famous water taxis that provide access to these precious gems where lush jungle meets the deep blue waters of the Pacific Ocean.
