Don't be afraid to explore up and down the cobblestone streets to uncover hidden treasures! The public beach offers an opportunity to people watch and experience some of the Mexican culture.

The romantic zone made get my grove back. The stress was lifted since we Noth live busy lives in Washington DC. We enjoyed the Romantic zone so much that we started looking at condos. I enjoyed walking the streets at night bar hoping with my baby. Puerta vallarta is a must visit money guaranteed that 6ou will love it.

This area in downtown PV is a growth area. There are many new Hotels and Restaurants to frolic in. Great scenery and just fun times there. Shops are plentiful.

This is one of the most interesting parts of Puerto Vallarta. Really good restaurants of all types, fascinating shops, great beach access and generally more fun than the northern big hotel area.

Was disappointed. The church, however, is beautiful. Shops are everywhere as they are throughout the area. Nothing special.
