Puerto Vallarta has been once again nominated at the 2017 Travvy Awards as a top “Best LGBTQ” destination. Great gastronomy, crystal clear water and an amazingly hospitable people makes Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit two of Mexico’s top destinations. Since May 2016, this gay-friendly city is now also opened to same-sex civil unions.
As a wedding photographer, I am lucky enough to witness people’s happiness in many different places and I can say that there is a hand full of awesome places in this enormous Bay. In this article, I will share my personal selection of 8 Resorts and Boutique Hotels in Banderas Bay.
The Four Season
The Four Season is a world-class 5-stars luxury hotel in the exclusive town of Punta de Mita, in the North of the Bay of Banderas. Right next to the magic town of Sayulita and right in front of the hidden beach of Marietas Islands, Punta de Mita is the perfect destination for those who seeks privacy and luxe. With experienced international staff, service and dining the Four Seasons is a turn-key destination destination for an incredible experience.
Casa China Blanca
Casa China Blanca is a modern beach-front villa. Clean design and state of the art finishes characterizes this amazing property. Family and friends will enjoy the intimacy of the spacious guest suites, inviting dining areas, and the pristine infinity pool. It has been featured in major movies such as Limitless (2011), featuring Bradley Cooper and Elysium (2013), featuring Matt Damon.

Hacienda San Angel witnessed Richard Burton & Elizabeth Taylor romance in the late seventies and was the couple favorite’s retreat for nearly fifteen years. Romantic guest suites right above Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe’s church offer its guests an unforgettable experience.
If you would like your wedding to be on the grass, 10 meters away from the beach enjoying the sunset, Playa Matorca might just be the place for you. Family ran for over thirty years, it is specially designed for couples who do not want a hotel wedding but more of an outside, relaxed reception. The Basañez family provides design and catering services for your convenience during your special day.
Don Pedros in Sayulita
Sayulita is a magic little town of the state of Nayarit, located on the pacific coast. It is also the perfect spot for surfers and lovers who are looking for a boho chic kind of wedding. Located on top of a hill with extensive sea views, Don Pedros offers to its guests open air palapas and thick grass. With a capacity of 250 people maximum, Don Pedro can also include the catering into its services.

Tropical gardens and ocean views is what awaits you if you decide to visit Villa del Oso. Available for vacation rental or as a wedding venue, this beautiful villa located on the north side of Sayulita can accommodate up to 120 people.
Sierra Lago in Mascotas
If you want to get away from civilization and find yourself within the mountains of Sierra Madre, Sierra Lago in Mascotas is the place just for you. About 2.5 hours away from Puerto Vallarta, Sierra Lago features a beautiful lake, incredible vegetation and comfortable accommodation. The temperatures are also much cooler than Puerto Vallarta due to the altitude and environment of the hotel.
