As summer comes to its last few weeks, Puerto Vallarta is entering its low season. This, of course, means great hotel deals. In particular, now through mid-September, a handful of hotels are drastically dropping their rates to as low as $61 per night. Whether you crave a luxury resort or an intimate inn, here's a sampling of what's available.
From $61: Hotel Rosita
With its colonial-style architecture, this 114-room hotel is on the Malecón boardwalk. While rates are from $133 per night for a standard room in early August, the prices soften to as low as $61 from the third week of the month all the way to late September. Bonus if you're traveling with family: up to two kids (ages 11 and under) stay free.
From $179: Villa Premiere Hotel and Spa
Deluxe bay view rooms start from $179 per night throughout August and September at this adults-only hotel on the beach. For an all-inclusive experience that covers all food and drink at three restaurants and two bars, pay $235. To get you into the vacation mood, you'll get a free glass of sparkling wine and a five-minute stress-release massage upon check-in.
From $112: Luna Liquida
You're guaranteed privacy at this property, whose 14 rooms are spread across five villas. Each is decorated with colorful Mexican crafts and outfitted with a full kitchen, infinity pool, and common areas. Throughout August, find rates from $112 per night in a standard room.
From $114: The Westin Resort and Spa, Puerto Vallarta
From August 16 through September, pay just $114 per night on weeknights at this 280-room property if you pre-pay for your stay (it's $148 per night with cancellation privileges). Even better, daily continental breakfast and cocktails are included in that price. Without leaving the property, you have access to a private balcony overlooking Banderas Bay, four restaurants (including an open-air steakhouse and nighttime tequila bar), and a spa.
