Vallarta & Nayarit Maps & Regions


MLS Vallarta & Nayarit encompasses the regions that can be found along the shores of Banderas Bay, and then further northward, outside of the bay and along the Mexico's Pacific coastline. Banderas Bay real estate is some of the most prized in all of Mexico. It encompasses one of the largest bays in the Americas, and its shoreline entails two states; Jalisco, home to Puerto Vallarta, and Nayarit, home to many smaller towns such as Bucerias, La Cruz, Sayulita and San Pancho, as well as mega developments such as Marina Vallarta, Nuevo Vallarta and Punta Mita.

To help you become more familiar with what the most popular real estate neighborhoods and regions are, we've broken down this area into nine regions and a number of sub-regions. These regions and sub-regions are used throughout the MLS service of Multi-List Vallarta, so if you are searching, you will want to be aware of where they are and what they entail. You'll also find more information available in this article: Vallarta & Nayarit's most popular real estate neighborhoods
