Where to stay in Romantic Zone

Combining modern hotel facilities with a traditional Mexican ambience, Puerto Vallarta’s Romantic Zone is the perfect destination for a beach vacation with a difference. The golden sands of the popular Playa Los Muertos beach and the district’s glittering nightlife scene are every beach lover’s dream, while glamorous boutiques and chic restaurants add a metropolitan flavor to this charming neighborhood. Best of all, the Zona Romantica—or Old Town area—retains its Mexican roots, and its winding cobblestone streets are bursting with traditional food, quaint bookstores and markets, and local art galleries.

Hotels in the Romantic Zone

Hotels in the Romantic Zone are plentiful, offering everything from 4-star style to more wallet-friendly accommodation. For vacationers seeking a taste of luxury, it doesn’t get any better than the 4-star Rivera del Rio Boutique Hotel, a top-rated Romantic Zone hotel just 10 minutes away from the buzzing Malecon boardwalk. Meanwhile, the poolside bar at the upscale Signature by Pinnacle hotel is ideal for whiling away sunny days in style. Budget hotels in the Romantic Zone are ideal for thrifty travelers—the 2.5-star Casa Dona Susana places visitors in the heart of the action thanks to its close proximity to Los Muertos Pier, and offers a fabulous vacation experience without breaking the bank.

Things to see in the Romantic Zone

Hit the beach at Playa Los Muertos, where you can swim in the turquoise waters, get your adrenaline pumping with a parasailing session, or simply relax and soak up the Mexican sun on the golden sands. Be sure to stop by the Old Town Farmers’ Market, a weekend event offering artisan goods, regional produce, an exciting array of handicrafts, and local artwork. This is a producer-only market, which means that everything on sale here has been handmade, so you can be sure you’re getting the freshest food and most original souvenirs around. Take a stroll down Olas Atlas, where a multitude of bars and restaurants offer up a feast for the senses, then spend your evening enjoying a spot of people-watching over cocktails at the River Café or dancing the night away at the popular Andale nightclub.

Good for sun-worshippers and partiers

If you need to top up your vitamin D, the sunny shores of Puerto Vallarta’s Zona Romantica are the place to be. With sweeping stretches of golden sands along the beach at Playa Los Muertos and poolside bars at highly rated 4-star hotels, you’re guaranteed a fun-filled beach vacation in the Romantic Zone. Night owls will flock to the area’s signature cobblestone streets—enjoy a chilled-out drink accompanied by piano music at Le Bistro Jazz Café, dance to the DJ’s top hits at Harry’s Bar, and join fun-loving partygoers in the neighborhood’s best nightclubs, where the electric atmosphere sees revelers dancing till dawn.

How to get to the Romantic Zone

Fly into Gustavo Diaz Ordaz International Airport, just north of Puerto Vallarta and a 20-minute drive from the Romantic Zone. Arrange a private transfer, hail a white airport taxi outside the terminal, or hop on a bus marked “Zona Romantica” and you’ll be poolside before you know it! Getting around the Romantic Zone is as easy as uno, dos, tres—local buses and yellow taxis are widely available throughout the neighborhood, while the area’s proximity to the marina means that boat trips are easily accessible. The quaint cobblestone streets are perfect for navigating on foot, with something to discover round every corner.
