Gorgeous area.

Very hot and humid when we went, with lots of peddlers, but a very beautiful area. Lots to do and see!

This area is traditional...Ok the beachfront restaurants have modernised somewhat but this is the old part of PV and it has a special feel to it as soon as you arrive. People everywhere smile as they walk around, it's a gentle relaxing area. You will wander past lot of stalls, there will be hawkers wandering, at night singers, guitarists and... More

A lovely place to take a stroll. Charming architecture and cobble-stone streets. Felt totally safe walking though here.

A bit disappointing but worth a wander if you want to fend off vendors and find some good food to eat.

Old Town if filled with great restaurants, beaches, bars and real Mexican daily life. It's a quiet area set apart from the hustle and bustle of the city by the river and the mountains. Only a few roads in or out so nice place to enjoy small town living.

Fun to walk around, shop and people watch. We didn't eat too much here. It was our first trip to Mexico so we were a little leary and we also stayed at an all inclusive.

This section of PV is a must see. The walk along the sea is breathtaking and the people watching and shopping is amazing! Along this nice flat stretch of walk are many food options for anytime of day! Enjoy!

Lots of shopping and restaurants. We managed to be ahead of the cruise ship crowds so we didn't experience the same complaints as other reviewers.

We visited the Zona Romantica on our last day there. We figured it would be important to see since it was spoken of so much. We were wrong. It was SO busy compared to the rest of PV we wish we had just stayed where we were and relaxed longer.
