Puerto Vallarta lies along Banderas Bay, the second largest bay in the Western Hemisphere. It is located 352 kilometers (219 miles) from Guadalajara, the state capital of Jalisco, and it is nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Madre mountain range. The region has many forests, rivers and waterfalls, with an average temperature of 27°C (80°F).
Of its many attractions, Playa Mismaloya – which gained fame from the film "The Night of the Iguana" – is a popular celebrity hangout. The impressive rock formations of Los Arcos emerge from the bay's crystalline waters, which are great for diving and discovering incredible underwater mountains and steeps. The city hall has murals painted by Manuel Lepe, and the Malecon (sea wall) is adorned with romantic bronze sculptures. Downtown streets offer shops and galleries that sell local paintings and sculptures. The city, known for its top-notch services, also has golf courses, boutiques and a marina.
In Puerto Vallarta you can enjoy the exquisite regional cuisine of Jalisco and the terraces of open-air restaurants, where you can watch cruise ships roll in as you take in an incredible sunset.
Sport fishing is just one of many activities you can do during your stay in Puerto Vallarta. Each year, during the month of November, the International Sailfish Fishing Tournament takes place. Other activities available in this region are eco-tourism, extreme sports, snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, boating, golfing and nightlife.
Note: There are many stairs needed on regular basis - not wheelchair accessible

Everything about the Villa was wonderful. The cooks, the location, the amenities and the villa itself. My wife and I went with my in-laws and our youngest and we all had an excellent time. The best Thanksgiving dinner ever!
We had a beautiful stay at Casa Ileana. We arrived with luxury retreats concierge on the property introducing us to the staff. This was very helpful. Christy the house manager an cook was amazing. Her cooking was fantastic! The home was gorgeous the pictures don't do it justice. We also love the proximity to old town.
We just returned from our second visit to Casa Ileana and have already booked our dates for next year. This home is absolutely stunning with gorgeous views, a short walk down the hill to town and the beach, and a staff that will do anything you ask. Cristina’s meals are outstanding (ask for the pepper soup) and she cares for our son as if she has known us her entire life. Having visited Puerto Vallarta for several years and staying at a few different homes, it should also be noted that the pool and patio area at Casa Ileana are much larger than most you will find in the area. I highly recommend staying here while visiting Puerto Vallarta.
Although we were there during the presidential election, I felt like the King of Mexico. Casa Ileana made us feel like we were in a castle on the side of a mountain looking over Old PV. The staff was amazing and friendly, and could cook some of the best Mexican breakfast I have ever had (and I'm a Chef). The rooms, though some larger than other, were all at least hotel sized and had five star accommodations, from soft beds to A/C units. The living area, dinging room, kitchen and pool is where we spent most of our time, which always came with comfort, a satisfying view, and brilliant sunsets. I can't recommend Casa Ileana enough, and if I did I would ruin the surprise...
The staff at Casa Ileana is the best I have ever experienced. Christina prepared a wonderful breakfast every morning and went above and beyond at every turn. My son became ill while we were there and she cared for him like he was her own, made extra trips to the store, brought medicine, etc. The house was beautiful, the views were outstanding, I would highly recommend it and I am sure we will return next year.
