Flanked by the Pacific Ocean’s pounding surf, the sunlit shoreline of Puerto Vallarta is a viable destination for travelers looking to escape the monotony of those 9-to-5 work days.
But what’s even more attractive than Puerto Vallarta’s spectacular sights is its affordability.
Case in point: TravelByJen.com is promoting a seven-night all-inclusive beach vacation that includes a stay at the AAA Four-Diamond, all-suite Barceló La Jolla de Mismaloya and round-trip airfare — all starting from a lowly $499.
Besides unlimited food and drinks, tips and all non-motorized water sports are also included in this tantalizing offer.
Note: The above price quote is valid for departures between April 14 and Aug. 11, 2010.
About the resort: Taking up a sizeable portion of prime oceanfront real estate, the Barceló La Jolla de Mismaloya contains four swimming pools and 316 guestrooms with high-quality flat-screen televisions.
This fine resort also offers guests a spa, tennis court, free kids’ club, five eateries, and two bars.
Rates are per person, based on double occupancy. Taxes and fees are additional.
The catch: Sunscreen not included.
