“Boats and restaurants”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2012

Harbor for yachts with good restaurants. Some shops. Not really worth a taxi ride to see it.

“We love the ambience of the Marina.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

Unfortunately (I guess from economy) - there are a lot of shops & restaurants now closed, however we still love the Marina to stroll around and drool over the huge yachts...grab a cold cerveza (or bucket) and people and bird watch. There are a lot less vendors trying to sell their wares, but the favourites... Victors and El Coleguita etc., are still there.

“La Marina”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2012

I like the marina for its proximity to our resort (Velas Vallarta) and for the proximity to the airport. However, if this is the only place you go whilst you're in Mexico - you are missing out greatly! Its nice to stop by Victor's because the atmosphere is awesome there (Alvaro "Big Al" is always fun and Victor has been there every time we visit - he is very nice and accommodating). As for the other restaurants in the marina, we have not found anything we really like that can compare to stops in old town. The marina is nice for a short stroll around - looking at all of the vessels. Just average in my opinion for a Mexican experience.
