Puerto Vallarta lies along Banderas Bay, the second largest bay in the Western Hemisphere. It is located 352 kilometers (219 miles) from Guadalajara, the state capital of Jalisco, and it is nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Madre mountain range. The region has many forests, rivers and waterfalls, with an average temperature of 27C (80F).
Of its many attractions Playa Mismaloya, which gained fame from the film "The Night of the Iguana", is a popular celebrity hangout. The impressive rock formations of Los Arcos emerge from the bay's crystalline waters, which are great for diving and discovering incredible underwater mountains and steeps. The city hall has murals painted by Manuel Lepe, and the Malecon (sea wall) is adorned with romantic bronze sculptures. Whats more, the streets of downtown offer shops and galleries that sell local paintings and sculptures of local artists. The city, known for its top-notch services, also has golf courses, boutiques and a marina.
In Puerto Vallarta you can enjoy the exquisite regional cuisine of Jalisco, that so many people have come to love, and the terraces of open-air restaurants, where you can watch cruise ships roll in as you take in an incredible sunset.
Sport fishing is just one of many activities you can do during your stay in Puerto Vallarta. Each year, during the month of November, the International Sailfish Fishing Tournament takes place. Other activities available in this region are eco-tourism, extreme sports, snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, boating, golfing and nightlife.
Additional amenities include: private chef, housekeeper, alfresco dining, manager, cd player, butler, gardener....Read more

Great villa and staff. The only issue was that the villa is located next to the public access to the beach. Constant noise from people trying to park, get to and from the beach was unpleasant. It should of been mentioned in the description.
"Bucerias is charming, and the Villa is a perfect place to enjoy"

Villa Encanto was a wonderful place to gather our extended family together. It is ideally set up being right on the gorgeous beach. The pool is at the back of the house and offers complete privacy. We had 6 little ones 3 years and under and the layout worked out well, they especially enjoyed the raised sandy area that looks down on the beach. We were there in August which is hot, but the house was always comfortably cool and Bucerias wasn't crowded as it can be in the season. Bucerias itself is a great little town, convenient to the airport, has a wonderful beach and is much more laid back than PV. The staff were absolutely fabulous and went above and beyond our expectations. - Margaret V., ,

There is nowhere else in the Puerto Vallarta region we would rather have been. Villa Encanto is perfectly situated on the prettiest beach. It was wonderful to have a patio ON the beach where we could relax comfortably and not have to lug the chairs, towels, toys onto the beach. We could sit, toes in the sand, and watch the kids play in the waves. Perfect!

Jennifer\'s assistance with booking was very friendly, and extremely responsive. Marilu\'s work in Guest Services was knowledgeable and detailed. The entire process was flawless, including the arrangement of activities, provisions, and menus.\n\nThe villa staff is the best part ? attentive and extremely hard working, making us feel completely at home and pampered. Maria\'s cooking is absolutely wonderful. And Greg had everything perfectly coordinated and supplied. I really can\'t say enough about the magic that the house staff performs.\n\nThe villa itself is magnificent ? gorgeous private grounds with lush gardens, a big pool, and a patio that sits directly on a really nice beach. It\'s such an excellent vantage point for the beach, that there\'s no reason to step off the compound, except to swim in the ocean.\n\nThe entire experience is absolutely unforgettable. I believe that the only reason this villa is ever available for booking is that larger groups are more difficult to commit.
