21 Photos to Inspire Your Next Trip to Mexico - My Deztination

MEXICO

Puerto Vallarta, Nuevo Vallarta, Jalisco, Nayarit, Sayulita, Bucerias, Yelapa, Zona Romantica.

Each a part of the stunning Banderas Bay, encircling the Pacific Ocean with their white sandy beaches, long stemmed palm trees & tropical trade winds.

Most recommended against Vallarta, claiming the East Coast of Mexico was better. Buy myself, a Pacific Islander at heart, fell deeply in love with this sunny piece of paradise.

Check out the photography below, I hope it inspires you to spend some time in this spectacular piece of Mexico.
