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.

This is the best place to stay - I would NOT want to stay in the hotel zone - too far. You have everything at your fingertips.

This quaint area offers some of the best restaurants in town. The shops are small but you don't want to pass them by. We found some of the best deals and most unique items in these shops. The walk is well shaded when the days gets to warm. Enjoy the views and the hospitality, we keep returning for more.
