Andales has been here for over 35 years. It is the much loved bar for everyone who grew up in the 70"s. It remains the same for all of us to enjoy!!!!!!!!!

the main street that runs parallel to the Malecon (boardwalk).. it is loaded with all kinds of shops and restaurants plus pharmacies, liquor stores and more.. it's where you want to take a stroll when you need a break from the Malecon

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.
