The Zona Romantica is one of the main reasons we love Puerto Vallarta. It has managed to maintain its Mexican heritage while also offering a variety of food options and great entertainment.

Everyone here seems comfortable being who they are meant to be here. Friday night at Nacho Daddy's gives a great blues band night. Starts 8:30ish. But show up at least 8pm. Saturday am has market in the square across from Hotel Eloisa. Great yoga studio called Yoga Vallarta in Basillo Badillo. Would recommend this destination for 40 and up people.

Zona Romantica is quiet and beautiful. We rented an apartment there from Air B&B. It was overlooking the beach. Amazing view, close to downtown but quieter.

Pleasant evening stroll and were lucky enough to see a wedding in the beautiful church. Lots of street food stalls and street entertainment to enjoy.

We spent our first afternoon in PV strolling through and found lots of shops, locals and tourists, restaurants and activity of all kinds. Get away from the resort and spend some time here!

Nice church in the middle of old Puerto Vallarta, beautiful old relics. Make sure to ask about the history of the dome that looks like a crown.

We loved Zona Romantica. It is a short walk from the end of the Malecon. It is Puerto Vallarta's Greenich Village with lots of color, flavor and personality. It is a great place to people watch, get a meal or shop.
