More than 300 days of tropical sunshine a year all but guarantee you'll have a sun-soaked stay in Puerto Vallarta.

The Destination
Playa Conchas Chinas is not far from downtown Puerto Vallarta, but a world away from the spring breakers and mega-resorts. In fact, previous visitors to Puerta Vallarta may be surprised that away from the noisy strip, they can actually hear the waves. Rocky cliffs and secluded coves make up the shoreline, with shells ground to a fine sand by the tumbling waves. This sophisticated community leverages its to-die-for scenery to attract an affluent crowd and countless fashion shoots.

The Digs
Quinta Maria Cortez is built into a steep hillside overlooking the beach and Banderas Bay. In sharp contrast to the sprawling hotels farther north, this villa-style bed and breakfast has only seven suites, meaning guests aren't just a room number. A warm, eclectic mix of Mexican antiques, local art, and open-air living areas lends a "Mexiterranean" vibe to the private-entry accommodations, many of which feature kitchenettes, bay-view balconies, and air-conditioned bedrooms. Even with 320 days of tropical sunshine per year, a cool breeze coming off the water keeps open-air spaces the perfect temperature—no thermostat needed.

The Diversions
Start your day with a gourmet breakfast under a shady palapa before venturing down to the secluded shore (no pushy beach vendors here). Or, bask in the sun on the rooftop—"among the best sunset-watching spots in town," according to Frommer's. When you want to cool off, consider a dip in the small pool or snorkeling in Banderas Bay. Quinta Maria Cortez also offers a range of spa treatments.

Yes, you're away from rowdy revelers, but the party isn't too far. In fact, it's just a five-minute cab ride (or a 15-minute walk down the beach) to all the action. Check out Puerto Vallarta's dining scene with discounts at numerous fine restaurants—El Arrayán, No Way José!, Barcelona Tapas, Archie's Wok, Red Cabbage Café, Trio Restaurant Bar & Café, and Vitea—then return to your suite, slipping between the crisp, white sheets and drifting off to the sound of crashing waves.
