The area has lots of interesting and colorful restaurants and night clubs that look worth a visit. It seems to be quite safe at night.

Everything is happening in the Zona Romantica. The art galleries, the food, night clubs, the beach is near by. I love it.

A little noisy but safe. Great restaurants. Touristy. Lots to see. Some great bars. Some not so great. Great condos, particularly Signature by Pinnacle.

The city is old and has a lot of charm for the city. The roads are made of stone and is really bumpy. There are a ton of people setting things and always coming up to you but a simple no thank you and they leave you alone. Security is great here. I never felt unsafe (even with darker streets)....

Wonderful area full of charm, authenticity and picturesque! So much to see and do from restaurants, walking the Los Muertos Beach with its beach restaurants and beautiful little shops. Real feel of Mexico and a must see even if you are not staying in this area.

Typical beach area with lots of shops and restaurants. Beach area here is quite busy with lots of activities going on. Restaurants on beach and music playing. Happy place.

We had dinner at La Palapa, right on the beach. Service was slow and relaxing and the food was excellent! From there, we strolled to the Los Muertos sculpture and along the boardwalk back to the arches. Very pleasant!

Went there during the low season so most of the restaurants were closed. The ones that were open were nice. A great place to see in Puerto Vallarta.

Amazing selection of resorts. You would be in Paradise anywhere in this area. We stayed in Puerto Vallarta at the Melia seven years ago and absolutely lived it. Great shows and activities, beach area not the best, very rocky.
