Olas Altas is the main avenue for shopping and eating in the Old Town district of Puerto Vallarta. This area also comes alive after dark, with many bars and restaurants to eat and get entertained.

I am an annual visitor in November, but had the opportunity to visit the last of September. Pizza Nostra was one of the few restaurants open so I was able to have my favorite raviolis with meat sauce.

Quiet street on the southern part with many hotels and apartments, lots of traffic further to town, good restaurants, bars, lots of night life, but also all the amenities needed, like pharmacy, bakery, fashion shopping, spas and hairdressers, restaurants and groceries.

Walking into the area of Olas Atlas is more like walking back in time with a few modern reminders just to keep it real. The variety of restaurants and shops along with street vendors are endless. If you are looking for it you will find it here. A perfect trip every time.

Olas Altas is one of the nicest streets in Puerto Vallarta, its got a nice Mexican feel about it. it lined by nice bars and restaurants. and the best bit is that there is no chains restaurants or bars. Hopefully it will stay like that. its a beautiful cobbled street and its got a lovely feel to it.

This is the main restraint street in Zona Romantica. There are a great number of dining and drinking options along and very nearby. You could spend weeks dining at all of the restaurants and never repeat yourself. It is also very handy to the beachfront restaurants, which are only a half block or so away.
