The boat ride staff were all very kind and entertaining. The food and drinks were great and satisfying. Plenty of time to try all the activities at least once. Definitely recommend this trip!

If your looking for a neighborhood that is artistic and cosmopolitan, this is the place. Just off the malecon and south of the Cuale river, you will find lots of great restaurants and unique shops without having to search hard.

Oh my goodness, how many people come to Puerto Vallarta each year and stay at their all inclusive resorts for the full week? You must get out and explore this beautiful and historic city with its cobblestone streets, beautiful architecture, live music and fabulous restaurants.

We enjoyed walking by the pier and shops. The food was great though we were very careful drinking water and ice. Make sure to bring your own ice cold water bottles.

The Zona Romantica is truly the place to be and visit in Puerto Vallarta. However, it's getting very pricey and may not be the IT place for long. Lots of great restaurants and hotels but might break your piggybank. Other neighborhoods are more real and vibant.
