Whatever rating people assign to it - take it wit a grain of salt. You will either like the narrow streets and cracked facades of rundown buildings for their local character or you will much dislike the area for the very same. I liked it mostly because wherever I go, I wish to see true nature of the place and... More

This area of downtown seems to change from the main downtown area and the Malecon boardwalk. If you are in the Marina Vallarta area, you can catch the bus and one of it's last stops will take you in or very near the Romantic Zone.

PV's Best Neighborhood! Close enough to the Malecon, but far enough away. Features the very lovely Isla del Cuale. Lots of food and shopping.

Very lively and usually busy in the evenings. Popular with all walks of life, and if you are interested, appears to be very GLBT friendly. Numerous good and bad restaurants and drinking places. You can even watch curling in a local sports bar. You can get real massages in the area for $25 US for an hour as some of... More

Really cool section of town. Lots of little shops & vendors. Stay out of the streets & you can come across crazy drivers -- take the bus to save some $ & see the townsfolk

We stayed in Zona Romantica for four nights and enjoyed every bit of our stay. Great food and entertainment is plentiful, and all at your doorstep. We loved the vibe and the overall friendliness of everyone we met. It is old Mexico, and very full of tourists, and yet the true Mexican Culture still is evident in the great food,... More

This is one of our favorite areas of Puerto Vallarta, there are many shops and restaurants and the walk by the ocean is simply wonderful. The Zona Romantica is an area that cannot be missed it is a unique area filled with tradition and great customer service that one can only find in Mexico. Happy travels!
