Either early morning or late afternoon are good times to take a stroll through this very nice area; where you will find many attractive houses and some excellent high quality shops run by owners.

If you visit Puerto Vallarta you must leave your resort or hotel and make the journey to the old town. Great food, Silver Stores, and classic dancing locations.

For us we love the 'old' Mexican towns, as there is always a new experience awaiting for one to embrace. From the architecture, food and people, you will be amazed.

It was great to see all of the shops and restaurants. A lot of tourist shops, but it had a great mix of genuine shops for its local residents too. It is easy to catch a cab to and from here. My kids love seeing the dogs walking around with their owners, most of them without leashes though.

You have to be very appreciative of the strong direction the people of PV keep moving toward every year. We missed a few years here and the changes are profound, I truly take my hat off to their endeavours.

I love walking all the little streets out of the touristy areas. I hike all around everyday to see how the real people live and it is charming and very pretty for the most part.

Great part of town, and a must-see if you're in PV. We love walking around cities, and this area was walkable, interesting, and had a lot of unique things to do. Shops, bars, restaurants, and old-world charm. Go see it!

We walked through Old Vallarta during our free tour provided by our resort. The greenery was lush and the buildings were adorable. It's a very peaceful, pretty place to walk through if you have a chance.

I really like watching people and this is one of those places you can go and ejoy food and drinks and also all the activity there. We went with friends and made a day of it. Would go again when we are back in P.V. Hopefully sooner than later.
