Getting to Know the Town
Puerto Vallarta has four tourist districts and traveling between them is super easy. Essentially there is just one road into and out of town: Highway 200.
Downtown Puerto Vallarta is where you’ll find some of the fancier shops with higher end clothes, artwork and tequila, not to mention a few of the best balconies on which to enjoy a margarita while you watch the sun go down into the Pacific. Although many tourist stay in the Hotel Zone and downtown, in our opinion you’d be missing the best part if that was all you saw! For the real deal, you’ll want to be in Zona Romantica, where you’ll find some great food and shopping. Jacqui’s “Been There” Tip: For a beautiful, peaceful stroll, you can’t beat the neighborhoods inland of the Zona Romantica.
