If you are going to buy Puerto Vallarta real estate, you have a large variety of community and neighborhood options before you, ranging from the classic expat neighborhoods next to downtown, to the gentrifying neighborhoods up on the surrounding hillsides, to the very modern suburban areas out along the beachfront. When it comes to buying a Puerto Vallarta home, many of these options present good possibilities; the following are a few that stand out.
Hillside Communities surrounding the Old Town. A number of these communities are just beginning to have new condo complexes appear, and are in the process of gentrification. In some, homes are harder to come by, and a little pricier, but sometimes very good deals can be found, including fixer-upper projects, offering life in a very convenient community for a much more accessible price. These communities are usually within walking distance to the dining and nightlife of downtown and the boardwalk area, but a taxi ride might be preferable to get back home.
Nuevo Vallarta and the surrounding communities. Nuevo Vallarta is a newer area, but has already become an established favorite for many American and Canadian buyers. This area offers all the conveniences of a modern lifestyle with close proximity to shopping malls as well as the beach. There are also golf course communities with great options for Puerto Vallarta homes in upscale communities.
Marina Vallarta. This exclusive marina community offers not only boating access to the bay, but also some of the best shopping and dining areas of Puerto Vallarta. In addition to the marina development itself, there are also nearby communities which offer good options for lower-priced homes, which can even be within walking distance to many of the conveniences.
Nearby Villages. While most of the options are located in town, or the areas out along the bay, now and then a very beautiful home for an accessible price will turn up a short drive up the road, into the hills. These are beautiful and charming areas; a car would definitely be necessary, but for some people this may be their thing.
