Historical review
The oldest archaeological remains that have been found in Puerto Vallarta, to date, they come from the site called La Pedrera on Costa Rica Street, in the Lázaro Cárdenas neighborhood. It is probable that the first settlements were established around the year 300 a. C. in the Middle Preclassic. A thousand years later the people of Aztatlán arrived in the Early Classic Post and were finally inhabited by groups of the Banderas culture in the Late Classic Post. This culture was what the Spaniards found when they arrived in the valley.

El Teniente Lázaro Blanco dice, en su Relación de Compostela, escrita en 1584, que los naturales llamaban a este valle "Xihutla" que quiere decir "lugar donde crece la hierba". El capitán Francisco Cortés de San Buenaventura fue el conquistador de esta región. Narran los cronistas que cuando llegó al pueblo de Tintoque, estaban esperándolo a la entrada más de veinte mil indios armados y portando una banderita de plumas en la mano y otra en el carcajo. Los españoles traían cuatro estandartes reales y una de damasco rojo con una imagen de La Purísima al frente y una cruz por atrás. Al ver tantos enemigos, el fraile que venía con ellos se arrodilló para pedir el auxilio divino y al momento el estandarte de Damasco se llenó de resplandores infundiendo valor en los soldados y pavor en los indios, quienes se rindieron dejando a los pies del padre sus banderitas y sus armas. Esto sucedió en marzo de 1525, y por eso, los españoles le dieron al valle el nombre de Banderas y así se llama hasta hoy. turismo gay en vallarta.

Puerto Vallarta, formerly called Las Peñas, Peñitas and, probably, in more distant years El Carrizal, was founded in the independent period, on December 12, 1851, by Guadalupe Sánchez Torres, his wife Ambrosia Carrillo and some friends such as Cenobio Joya, Apolonio de Robles, Cleofas Peña and Martín Andrade, among others, who gave the name of Las Peñas de Santa María de Guadalupe for being that day dedicated to the Virgin. On October 31, 1886, Las Peñas, of the municipality of Talpa, was established by the political and judicial order, by Decree No. 210 of the H. Congreso del Estado. By decree number 305 of the H. Congreso del Estado, of May 2, 1888, the Las Peñas police station is annexed to the municipality of San Sebastián.

On May 31, 1918, the police station of Las Peñas is elevated to the category of Municipality by decree number 1889 of the H. Congress of the State. When changing the political category, the Las Peñas police station received the name of the municipality of Puerto Vallarta, in honor of Mr. Ignacio L. Vallarta, a notable jurist from Jalisco and former governor of the state. This change was made at the request of the deputy Dr. Marcos Guzmán. The decree referred to was published on June 5, 1918. On May 31, 1968, the town of Puerto Vallarta is elevated to the category of city by decree number 8366 of the H. State Congress, when celebrating its fiftieth anniversary as a municipality. Currently the city of Puerto Vallarta is still the municipal seat.
