Riu Jalisco resembles a white Mediterranean Palace rising from an oasis of palms on a long and beautiful stretch of beach with triangular silver turrets and Moorish style arches and columns glimmering in the warm Puerto Vallarta sun. An impressive brass crown (reminiscent of the legendary Vallarta cathedral) overlooks walkways and gardens that surround two lagoon pools. The courtyard faces the turquoise blue Pacific Ocean where pelicans skim waves which gently break over miles of a beach lovers dream. The ornate lobby and restaurants are enriched with polished wood, frescos, hand painted floral ceilings and mosaic tiles intermingled with the decor and the theme of the resort, the state of Jalisco, Mexico.
Please Note: At least one person 21 years or older must be in every room during March and April. The remainder of the year at least one person 18 years or older must be in every room. No student groups or Spring Breakers under 21 are allowed in March and April.
