Marina Vallarta, an enclave within Puerto Vallarta on Mexico's Pacific coast, is conveniently located near the airport and convention center. In addition to its namesake marina, it offers golf, shops, restaurants, residences, hotels and more.

Among luxury hotels are the 433-room Marriott CasaMagna and the 345-suite, all-inclusive Velas Vallarta.

The Marriott has a total of 9,000 square feet of meeting space. An intimate new private-dining venue, the Herb Garden, features a handcrafted wooden table that seats up to 10 in a tranquil, herb-scented space.

Velas Vallarta offers 7,000 square feet of meeting space. Among unique and eco-friendly experiences, groups of up to 30 can help release baby sea turtles into the ocean.
