Resort Title

Resort Aerial ViewThe Riu Jalisco rises from an oasis of palms on a long stretch of beach, triangular turrets glimmer silver in the Vallarta sun. A white Mediterranean Palace, Moorish style with arches and columns, has walkways and gardens that surround 2 lagoon pools. An impressive brass Crown (reminiscent of the legendary Vallarta cathedral), in the courtyard faces the green blue Pacific Ocean. Pelicans skim waves which gently break over miles of gold sand - a beach lover's dream.
