Romantic Zone, Puerto Vallarta

The Romantic Zone of Puerto Vallarta is a space in which you will feel at ease in your trip to the city of Jalisco. Follow this guide so you do not miss anything about the Romantic Zone (Zona Romantica).

What is the Romantic Zone?

In most Mexican cities founded during the colony, the original point is known as the historic center. As Puerto Vallarta was born in the mid-nineteenth century, after Independence, it has no viceroyal past, so its nucleus of origin is called Old Vallarta.

Despite its youth, Old Vallarta is as welcoming as any other old area of a Mexican city, although its architecture is obviously different. Some time ago, people started to refer to Old Town as the Romantic Zone, and now both names are used interchangeably. For its picturesque narrow streets, its cafés that invite you to rest, its hospitable hotels, its beautiful beaches, and other attractions, the Romantic Zone name serves it well.

Where is the Romantic Zone?

The Romantic Zone is the central – south part of PV that is bordered by the pier in the south and by the course of the Cuale River in the North. It goes from Playa Los Muertos, in front of the Malecon, to Insurgentes Avenue and from Costera Barra de Navidad Avenue to Aquiles Cerdán Street. These limits are approximate because other neighboring blocks claim to belong to Zona Romantica to enjoy their prestige. In any case, the Romantic Zone is large enough to provide everything a PV visitor needs and small enough to search on foot.

Is there a beach in the Romantic Zone?

The Romantic Zone has the most important urban beach in Puerto Vallarta: Playa Los Muertos (Los Muertos Beach). In Playa Los Muertos you do not lack anything. You have a spectacular beach, comfortable hotels, restaurants to enjoy jalisciense cuisine and nayarita del pacific, beach entertainments both in sand and water, good bars, live music and anything else you can think of to spend a day. Another beach of the Zona Romantica is Las Amapas, smaller and quieter than Los Muertos.

Playa Los Muertos Pier

The Los Muertos Pier is an attraction that deserves a separate point. Playa Los Muertos had an old pier, which in its first version was a precarious wooden structure built in the mid-twentieth century. The new work, inaugurated in 2013, is a 200-meter pier that serves for the departure and berthing of boats of various types, but its main attraction is the central sail, a frame in the form of a sail that at night offers an impressive view when it is illuminated. The sunsets and views of the landscape from the pier confirm that the area is very romantic.
