When we travel to PV we always stay in Zona Romantica. You are within walking distance to everywhere and a short cab ride from everything else. It truly is the perfect location to stay especally if you are looking for local fun.

My wife and I enjoyed the great restaurants, shopping and art. We agreed that we never had a bad meal and we ate in a number of restaurants.I wasn't aware that the area has a very high level of LGBT activity before we visited (which wasn't a problem for us but homo-phobes may want to consider this).

A must if your touring through old downtown and close to the Malecon to make this part of your tour. NIce view at night as well with the added lighting.

This part of Old Town Puerto Vallarta is chock full of condos, modest villas and very high end villas available to rent. The views of Banderas Bay from most locations is truly breathtaking. During whale watching seasons is especially interesting. Often you can see the whales from the beach or your terrace.

This old, historic part of Puerto Vallarta feels like a little city, and it has a very special atmosphere between the sea, the town, the mountains, the rivers, the Cuale Island and people from all over the world!!! Love it.

With a name like "Zona Romantica", how can anyone not enjoy this delightful part of classic PV? From the cobblestone streets, to the array of eateries suitable for all tastes and budgets, to the myriad of shops (touristy and not), to the art galleries, to the many folks ambling about... this is the historic heart of the city, and worth...

Like many cities, if a restaurant isn't very good, it's doesn't last long. There are many Canadian & American expats who live in PV and keep the good restaurants on their toes. Look for crowded places, that almost guarantees great food, service and prices. The lesser quality places will have hawkers outside trying to hook tourists into their places. Even... More

A great part of town with something for every one. You feel like you are in the real Puerto Vallarta that made Puerto Vallarta a top spot. Without all the sterile new condo buildings, this is old Mexico. This is what we are trying to escape to, when we visit Puerto Vallarta, not a 24 story building that looks like... More
