I stayed 4 days at a hotel in the Zona Romantica area and it was wonderful. The beaches were nice and there were a lot of shops, restaurants and bars in the area. Much of the architecture was very nice and it was a wonderful environment. Also it is easy to catch a bus to other parts of Puerto Vallarta.

We have been to PV a dozen times and always come back to the Zona Romantica to get that special feeling that you can only get here! Friendly people in a familiar place to us now! Well worth the experience every time.

Great place, Great friendly people. We visit here twice a year. The beaches are nice. Sometimes the walking merchants get tiresome.

Feed the pigeons there's so many of them and they love people. Beautiful flowers and views of the ocean. We shopped a bit as there is unique gifts here that we didn't see in the markets or shopping malls.

Get lost in local culture and feel the vibe of people all around you that all feel the same way as you, HAPPY. Lot's to see and many nooks and crannies to explore. When you need a break stop in at one of the many restaurants for anything from a cold beer and an appetizer to a full meal. Hint:... More
