So much better than staying in an all inclusive and staying in the Old Town. You get a better flavor of Mexico and see more of the customs and eat more authentic food. We are here at Christmas and am reminded of what Christmas is really about.
Old world charm in a tropical setting. Narrow cobble stone streets. Great for walking. Clean and safe day and evening.
We enjoyed the ocean views, visiting the shops, tequila tasting, and doing a self paced walking tour of Old Vallarta. We had a very good time.
Crowded with tourists, people selling the usual street side souvenir stuff. Nothing special. There is really nothing of much significance.
Beautiful architecture and lovely shops and restaurants tucked into small, narrow, cobblestone streets. An important view into an historical area often skipped by sun-worshiping tourists.
