As a part of our ongoing commitment to our clients, Purple Palm Vacations spends a lot of time learning about popular destinations by visiting them firsthand. Recently while in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, we had the pleasure of touring the family-friendly Barcelo Puerto Vallarta. This resort impressed us with its stunning location, gorgeous bay views, and luxurious suites. 

We Recommend This Resort For:  Families and groups


Barcelo Puerto Vallarta is nestled between Banderas Bay and the Sierra Madre mountains.
