There's a new condo building just about finished across the street from Margarita's restaurant. 7 or 8 floors of concrete. There's another one going up just a few blocks away. These new buildings are certainly taking away from the charm of the Zona Romantica. Too bad.

As a couple there is so much to do in Puerto Vallarta but the zona romantic was certainly one of our favorites! Just a very relaxing and fun place to visit.

Fun, safe area with tons of food and entertainment/nightlife options. Only real downside is the seemingly endless numbers of beach vendors that are interrupting your (insert whatever you wanted to do here) activity about every 2 minutes.

This area has it all and you can be confident that roaming around with friends, you'll find the best restaurants, lounges, beaches, shops and entertainment venues in Puerto Vallarta. The locals ensure that you'll feel welcome and comfortable wandering the area. We love the new places opening up during the recent (2015) upturn. There are new street festivals, craft breweries...

The restaurants, shopping and the views were great! We ate in three restaurants in this area plus did some fine jewelry shopping. Worth your time to go.

This is the Gayborhood. It is filled with charm, great restaurants, great live music, etc. If you want true Mexican culture, do not stay in Neuvo Vallarta (North) - it is NOT Vallarta. Come and enjoy this amazing small/big town!

Just sit outside at any of the local restrs. and observe the many people that wander by. This is the best place to take in the flavours of old PV....

The area is wonderful! Full of color, great people and lots of great places to shop and eat. The Church is in the center of the area, old and lovely. There are street artist and venders selling food.

For us this is the best location to live in. It has great restaurants, variety of businesses, good medical care and ease of getting around. In addition the beach areas are very good.

It was an amazing experience. This neighborhood has best of the restaurants, museums, gallery. I met so many interesting artists. And of course the beautiful church of Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe. People are friendlier and so helpful.
