Lots of local color! Great views and shopping. The homemade ice cream on the beach was fresh and delicious. Great stores for souvenirs.

We had so much fun walking around Zona Romantica! There is so much to see and so many places to stop at. The narrow, cobblestone streets with the al the plant-shaded paths are so unique and lovely. You gotta check it out!

Despite being touted as a haven for LGBTQ travelers the ZR has something for everyone. Hotels, restaurants, and markets are here in abundance along with an amazing stretch of beach (Dead Man's Beach). It's also an easy walk along the water to the Malecon area.

Just a couple of [perhaps petty] annoyances: Street merchants will sell you anything (some shady types will breeze by offering you illicit drugs) and might be overly persistent (especially time-share salespeople). Also, the street your hotel is on may not be familiar to your taxi driver so be prepared to give directions if returning here from another part of town.

All in all though this is a great place to experience Puerto Vallarta.

Food, drinks, entertainment, shopping, massages, etc. It's all here. You can spend multiple days here and there are so many more restaurants.

Love the outdoor seating at the different restuarants. Great places to watch people and just relax with some beverage and food.
