Old Vallarta is great for shopping and eating. Be careful if driving. Matter of fact, I would strongly suggest getting a taxi during your stay in Puerto Vallarta. It's safer for everyone involved.

What a wonderful little town filled with little shops, eateries and amazing Old Mexico Charm. Before coming here I promised my wife we would take as many cabs as she wants. TAXIS ARE ON EVERY CORNER. The town is so small and easy to get around that most of the time a 40 peso taxi would be a waste of time and money. the leisurely strolls provided us a chance to really get a chance to be apart of the local enviroment and just blend in.

There is completely different athmosphere compared to to the touristic area. We saw people living there casual everyday lives. It was great experience. Mexican people are very kind and have great sense of humour
