Every year, Condé Nast Traveler readers cast hundreds of thousands of votes for their favorite cities around the world (not including the USA) in their Readers' Choice Awards survey. This year Puerto Vallarta made the list for being one of the "Best Cities in the World", coming in at #38 out of 40 destinations. The description for Puerto Vallarta was; "Beaches. Water sports. Nightlife. What more could you want? If you’re in Puerto Vallarta, probably not much. Occupying prime real estate on Mexico’s Pacific coast, this sandy, LGBT-friendly resort town is backed by palm-covered mountains and has nary a bad angle. Sunbathe on Yelapa Beach, stroll along the malecón, or get offshore for snorkeling at the uninhabited Islas Marietas National Park. Looking for love, or at least a romantic meal? Make a reservation at Café des Artistes, which fuses French and Mexican cuisine for standouts including lobster chilaquiles, a butter tamale and ratatouille, duck leg with mole, and more."
