Echo Tours is excited to return to Puerto Vallarta. Until the 1960’s and the filming of John Huston’s Night of the Iguana, Puerto Vallarta was a quiet little fishing village, located on the Bay of Banderas. Now, it is one of Canada’s most popular retirement areas and home to thousands of winter snowbirds. Puerto Vallarta boasts average temperatures of 73– 80 during February, some of the most stunning sunsets you will ever see, beautiful beaches, and warm friendly people. U.S. currency is not necessary.
