Make sure you walk past the downtown tourist area and get over the bridge and beyond to experience some great restaurants and shops. Nice to sit in the sand at one of the many local spots with a cold beer and watch the sunset.

I love this area. The romantic zone is filled with pretty place, including cobblestone streets, lovely old churches and Mexican buildings. Lots of restaurants and night life as well as the beach and Malecon, make this an area worth visiting. Hop on a local bus if you are not staying nearby and enjoy the "Mexican Massage".

This can be quite touristy but well worth the visit, ask hotel concierge about events, cruise ships in port and other happenings to avoid crowds. Going when the avenue is not crowded is pleasant and entertaining. We were there on a Sunday evening and it was quite crowded early in the evening but leveled off quickly and was quite enjoyable....

This is the "heart-beat" of PV…quaint neighbor hoods with crowing rooster's, families strolling the streets, taco stands on every corner. I rent a condo high up on the hill with a beautiful view of the ocean and enjoy the immersion into Mexico. The streets are steep & cobblestone….can be a true effort to climb up if the weather is warm... More

This area is way over-crowded for our liking with many, many tourists and visitors off the cruise ships. However, Sam's Club and Walmart are just a stone's throw away in case you want to be close to those stores. The shopping is this area is way overpriced as well, as one can imagine. We like the peace and quiet of... More

This church was beautiful. There were many people taking in the church. It reminded me of the church my grandmother went to. Very friendly.
