Marina Vallarta, in Puerto Vallarta, was developed in the late 1980’s and was, at the time, one of the first mega developments (defined as a self-contained tourist community where nearly everything that a resident needs is readily available) in Mexico. It became a model for similar communities to be developed in other places such as Los Cabos, Mazatlan, Ixtapa and Cancun.
Marina Vallarta is built around two anchoring entities, a large 450-slip marina and an 18-hole golf course. The community is conveniently situated next to the Puerto Vallarta International airport, alongside the main highway that leads from the airport to downtown Vallarta and the Hotel Zone. It boasts over a kilometer of beachfront lined with hotels and condominium projects.
Along the highway and near the airport is the Plaza Marina Vallarta shopping center, with a Commercial Mexicana supermarket at its anchor, along with numerous shops, offices and restaurants. Around the marina is a promenade, great for walks, that is lined with condominium projects, with restaurants and shops featured on the ground level facing the marina.
