The Clean Beaches of Puerto Vallarta

By

Puerto Vallarta is one of the leading beach resort destinations in Mexico for many reasons – a wonderful climate, tours and activities, an incredible culinary scene, and a warm and welcome local population, among many others. But did you know that Puerto Vallarta has the cleanest beaches in Mexico with the largest number of Blue Flag Certified Beaches found here on our shores?

Blue Flag Certification is a recognition granted by the European Foundation for Environmental Education to beaches and marinas that meet an established criterion of quality, safety, education, and environmental information. Mexico has been participating in this international system of clean beach evaluations since 2012 under the organization of Pronatura, an environmental organization that strives to conserve marine and other natural ecosystems.

Around the world, there are 49 countries with Blue Flag beaches and Mexico has won 20 certifications, with 8 of those beaches located in Puerto Vallarta. To qualify, beaches are strictly judged under 33 criteria which fall under 4 categories: Environment Education & Information, Water Quality, Environmental Management & Conservation, and Safety & Services.

All the 8 Blue Flag Certified beaches in Puerto Vallarta are located within easy visiting distance from Pinnacle Resorts: Palmares, Camarones, Playa de Oro, Amapas, Conchas Chinas I, Conchas Chinas II, Garza Blanca, and the Hotel Zone. Talk to your Pinnacle Resorts Concierge for walking directions or fast and easy transportation to any of these clean local beaches and don’t forget your sunscreen!

SUMMER SEASON IN PUERTO VALLARTA

By

As the Spring Break, Easter vacation and Semana Santa crowds dissipate from Puerto Vallarta, we now move into our lovely summer season. While many people think of Puerto Vallarta as the perfect winter vacation destination in Mexico, May through September is actually one of the nicest times to vacation in our charming city. Here are just a few reasons why:

  • Fewer crowds – Summer season is the perfect time to experience Puerto Vallarta like a local, without the tourist crowds. It’s a wonderful time to explore the city, the beaches and the markets.
  • Lush greenery – The summer season in Puerto Vallarta is when our beautiful Sierra Mountain Range looks the greenest and beautiful. It’s also the perfect time to take a trip to the gorgeous Vallarta Botanical Garden. Tip: bring a swimsuit to take a cool dip in the river and leave time to stay and enjoy lunch in their beautiful restaurant with its amazing view.
  • Nature’s fireworks – Rainy season in Puerto Vallarta runs May through October, but our rains usually roll in once or twice a week in the late afternoon, after sunny days, to bring cooler temperatures and incredible showers that last about an hour before dissipating. If you have never seen a tropical rain shower, it is truly an experience and even locals that have lived here their entire lives, throw open their doors to welcome the first big rain of the season. But even more, the rains come with fantastic lightning shows over Bay, that promise to provide some of the best vacation photos you will ever take.
