Found this guide helpful

For the past five years my husband and I have spent at least four weeks in Puerto Vallarta. We love the variety and quality of restaurants in Vallarta. Each year we discover a new gem as well as visit old favorites.

Rosey383's City Tips

  • Also don't be afraid to take the local bus.. they are frequent and very reasonable!! (and fun)....
  • Vallarta has quiet the active Arts scene. Check out a play, show or painting exhibition while you are there...
  • Taxis are very reasonable and are priced on a zone system. Your concierge should have a list of the zones and prices from where you are staying.
