It is located one block from the Plaza de Armas and two blocks from the Malecon – you can’t miss it! Remember to follow the rules and show respect when visiting this magnificent church.
- The Romantic Zone (Viejo Vallarta)
Viejo Vallarta is located south of the Cuale River; it is also known as Zona Romantica (romantic zone) and it is one of the most distinctive areas of Puerto Vallarta. This area has a more traditional layout, where you will find countless shops, cafés, restaurants, and small hotels and inns.
This area is a favorite for people trying to experience the real Mexico, explore its narrow roads and enjoy everything Puerto Vallarta has to offer.
- Playa Los Muertos
Playa Los Muertos is the most popular beach in Puerto Vallarta, and is within walking distance from the Malecon and the romantic zone.
