Truly the only place to drat while visiting Puerto Vallarta. The old cobblestone steets, shopping, fine restaurants bars, clubs, and great beaches. Zona Romantica is quaint yet trendy and full of interesting people, love this place. Come visit, stay and I guarntee you will return.

Great place for a walk. Prettier at night when all the lights are on. Many restaurants offering a very wide selection of cuisines. Lots of shops to browse in. Plenty of friendly Mexicans to call you into their place of business!

Enjoy the seaside shops, walking along sampling foods, listening to violins! Many statues line the malecon. I loved the old church, and the open air restaurants, while a mariachi band serenades to.

By day, a lively, colorful section of PV.... beautiful colonial buildings and lots of good restaurants. Not for the feint-hearted by night, however, when the ultra-gays take to the streets.
