“Pure Vallarta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

Olas Altas is old school Vallarta. You've got the beach in front, gays all over, old gringos getting sloshed and tons of Mexican families milling about. Def a must visit during the day and at night.

“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

I rented an apartment for three months in this area, it's very close to EVERYWHERE you want to go! Maybe the rent is not very cheap but being so close in a very safe area makes it very worthwhile!

“The happening street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

On Saturday mornings there is a great Farmers Market on this street. It also has many many great resturants to try. It is practically out the front door of the hotel we stay at, Playa Los Arco's.

“Centro and Old Town are the place OLAS Altas is fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

It is one of the few streets in Old Town. Worth going to . and also wandering down Bacillo Badillo a newly done street with 15' sidewalks and cafes. Nice. Put your trash in the garbage. and if you walk your dog, bring a poop bag. We want to keep PV clean. Thanks
