This a completely bias review of this area of PV. I live here. I would just as soon have you not come to this part of town. I don’t relish the thought of having to wait in line behind you for a table in one...More
So much to see...... people, art, restaurants and more!
This year we rented a condo overlooking the Malecon and it was a very different way to be part of the PV scene. We felt like we lived here after a week.... walking the two miles...More
My husband and I do not stay anywhere else, as this area of Puerto Vallarta is our favourite. Many Boutique hotels and bigger hotel chains to choose from in this area.
Amazing restaurants, and places to walk. Only steps from the Malecon.
I prefer staying in the Romantic Zone when I visit PV. Walking distance to a plethora of bars, restaurants, cafes, convenience stores, ATMs, little posadas/local hotels, taco stands and Playa de los Muertos is just a block or two away. This week we stayed at...More
I am embarrassed to admit that I used to stay in Nueva Vallarta, imprisoned amongst other herded tourists, until I rediscovered downtown. This part of downtown ( along with Zona Rosa in Mexico City) is about as close as you will get to a neighborhood...More
A local of Puerto Vallarta recommended El Centro. He said it is where a lot of the locals shop and go. It had a ton of shopping from clothes to trinkets to jewelry. There are a lot of restaurants too! You can walk along the...More
Plenty of shops, restaurants, bars and hotels. We stayed here in late September so and that is the off season for tourists many of the folks on the street are locals. We felt very safe and people were friendly.
Walked around in this area every day that we stayed in PV!! Absolutely my favorite area by far!! So many beautiful buildings to see and lots and lots of shops and restaurants, also the river walk area was great! We felt safe everywhere we walked,...More

The nicest restaurant we went to was La Palapa on the beach. We actually walked to eat a El Dorado which was highly recommended by both the locals and trip advisor but we weren't sure of the menu. But right before El Dorado was La Palapa and we liked their menu so we decided to eat there. The food, attentive waiters and cocktails were way above what we had anticipated. Since it was on the end of the Malecon and on the beach you did not have a million people walking in front of you and the VIEW at sunset was amazing. Not to mention they had a live guitarist playing in the back ground. This will be our go to 'nice dinner out' night restaurant in the future...and you don't even have to dress up! We live in the desert and to have a high class dinner in flip flops on the beach for around a $100 was amazing!
The government only allows cabs to pick people up at the airport. The ride to your hotel if you take the cab is about 35$ American. If you don’t want to pay that much you must leave the airport and cross a bridge on foot... More
The government only allows cabs to pick people up at the airport. The ride to your hotel if you take the cab is about 35$ American. If you don’t want to pay that much you must leave the airport and cross a bridge on foot dragging your suitcases. The bridge is easy to find. Many people do it. At the end of the bridge are taxies lined up and they will take you there for half price. Uber works great for taking you to the airport. Used Uber many times was great. Used many cabs, I have never negotiated the fare prior to getting in. I have never had anyone attempt to screw me over, just many great drivers.
