Riu Vallarta

With a novel, modern interpretation of the RIU style, the Hotel Riu Vallarta offers a fresh, new contemporary art-deco style of architecture with avant-garde design, really distinguishing this exceptional resort, which will delight its guests with its legendary “All Inclusive” concept.

Bathed by the waters of the beautiful bay of Banderas and sheltered by the imposing Sierra Madre, Puerto Vallarta is one of the most highly-prized tourist destinations in Mexico. As well as excellent beaches and water sports, this destination offers you the chance to enter into contact with unique nature: dolphins, whales and turtles.
