Great downtown area full of restaurants from low to high end, great shopping (from tourist stalls to high end huichol and tequila outlets), fun people watching and lots of variety of accommodations. We always try to tack on a few days to our trip to stay in this area. The River Cuale Island is really neat to explore and is... More

Zona Romantica is by far my favourite part of town to hang around in. There is so much to do, many restaurants, the beautiful church, a good mix of locals and tourists and awesome nightlife. Do not miss out on this area of Puerto Vallarta.

Great restaurants, shoppingon the higher end, ocean front bars and food. Gay friendly neighborhood with a mix of high end chic hotels and little gem holes in the wall to discover for drinks,etc... Hotels are pricey here and it is a late night of action. Fun taco trucks set up later in the evening. No trip to Puerto Vallarta is... More

We've been coming to Puerto Vallarta since 2007, every time we stay in the Romantic Zone. Lots of great restaurants and bars, the malecon is right there, so many shops, and there's markets, lots of shopping, I wouldn't stay anywhere else! Love it here
