CHECK IN TO A MEXICAN JEWEL

Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton put Mismaloya Beach on the map with their 1963 film Night of the Iguana. And Puerto Vallarta hasn’t been the same since. But the new CASA IGUANA HOTEL in the Mexican village of Mismaloya captures something of that earlier era. Lush gardens and two swimming pools surround 52 sunny suites near Puerto Vallarta’s famed beach. With a two-bedroom abode going for $75 in high season, the rates are positively retro.
