“Best part of Vallarta”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

I love the old buildings, cobblestone streets and the old world feel about it. It is my favourite part of Vallarta.

“Rich with history”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

The people love their city and are happy to speak of its histroy. Puerto Vallarta is not its orginal name. The first mayor of Puerto Vallarta named it after his last name. The people are not happy with that.

“A very cool vibe!”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Looking for great food, entertainment and a beach to boot? You'll find it in Old Town ... one of the best places to enjoy PV. Everything important is only a short walk away. The new Malecon, beach, shopping, best restaurants, and nightly entertainment.

“Old, charming, unique, and most important BEAUTIFUL”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

While old and new blend wonderfully, Old Vallarta still has the "old spanish style charm". From the cobblestone streets and the hillside restaurants, Old Vallarta is worth strolling around. If you are looking for shopping, (there are flea markets), restaurants, or just beautiful views, I recommend taking the time to go off the path and explore. You will find the same friendly faces as you do downtown, but less traffic and fewer tourists. It is also a good place to bargain.

“Hard to drive around and find parking.”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

The place is charming but the streets are narrow and change traffic direction. Must pay close attention otherwise you'll end up driving the wrong way. The shops are really good and there is a good variety of restaurants.
