Best area of Puerto Vallarta to visit nice restaurants. There you find any kind of food possible. The walk is easy and entertained. You can seat and relax at a coffee shop or you can get drunk with margaritas or tequila shot at a bar and everything in between. For Us the best beaches are on this zona romantica area.... More

My wife and I love spending our time in PV in Old Town. The pace is much less hectic, the dining and shopping are great and also more casual. Don't miss coming to this end of town.

Less touristy, more laid back. Great variety of restaurants--fine dining to casual. Fun nightlife. Among the top restaurants are Vista Grille and Swedes. Vista Grille is very modern & dramatic with sweeping views of Banderas Bay and City lights. Continental menu with beautiful presentations. Swedes is within easier walking distance and is on 2 levels. Menu and food is equal... More

The view was pretty neat, the way the houses our sitting on the mountain surrounded by a jungle looking forrest. The beach is also nicer more south you go. Finer sand and clearer sea water. Theres a bunch of small shops and restaurants all along the beach.

Take the taxi there and just walk around and people watch. It's in old town. Lots of old restaurants and bars. It's neat to see the old town Vallarta used to be. Lots of shops and close to the beach. We prefer old to the Nuevo. We fell in love with Vallarta 2o+ years ago.

You can't go to Peurto Vallarta without seeing the romantic zone. It is full of beautiful old Mexico, great restaurants, shopping, beaches and wonderful people
