Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Reigning over Banderas Bay and bordered by the tropical forests of the Sierra Madre Mountains, Puerto Vallarta, is both a modern beach resort and an eco-adventure launching pad. On Mexico cruises to Puerto Vallarta, scuba dive with manta rays, spot dolphins playing in the waves, and hike to jungle cascades. Admire contemporary Latin American art in this breezy seaside city on your Carnival cruise to Puerto Vallarta.

  • Fly through the lush green forest canopy, secured to one zippy zip-line.
  • Pay homage to Ava Gardner and John Huston before snorkeling from Playa Mismaloya or Las Caletas — spots made famous by 1964’s The Night of the Iguana.
  • Join a whale-watching tour in winter, when humpback whales cruise through Banderas.
