Hi:) A quick note to everyone.. We have noticed positing’s that state “Downtown Puerto Vallarta” and yet you still need a car or a taxi to get to downtown. We are 100% DOWNTOWN and DIRECTLY on the BEACH so you can walk to everything - NO car/taxi needed, just an FYI.

Friendly staff, great location, good people watching

  • 4 of 5

A bit noisy at night. Problems that arose were solved quickly. A friendly neighborhood but some of the building residents seemed to resent the fact that non residents were staying on site. Great restaurants in the area. Building BBQ was immaculate, but tricky to light and an adventure to try to purchase a BBQ lighter at the nearby grocery store- which was exceptional!

Relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent 10 days in this beautiful place in mid June/2017. The apartment was clean and comfortable and the staff at the building was very helpful. We had the pool to ourselves because it was low season and for most of our trip we were the only guests. As advertised the apartment is right in front of the beach and walking distance to a supermarket "LEY" and the "Malecón." I also enjoyed going shopping to the local seafood market located just a few blocks from the apartment. I thought the beach was going to be "crazy" busy during the weekend but it wasn't bad at all. Noise levels were acceptable and vendors were respectful. I will defintely come back to this place. Piedad

Loved it !!!!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location! This was my first time booking through this website. I couldn't have asked for a better location and the condo is nicely updated. The view is awesome. I loved the washer dryer in unit it came in handy. The condo employees are very helpful. I felt very safe. If you stay here you must try the best taco spot, tacos carbonzito less than half a block away. Overall I had a great time!

Located on Camarones Beach in downtown Puerto Vallarta, also known as 'Viejo Vallarta,' which is the site of the original fishing village that turned into a world-renowned tourist destination. With cobblestone streets, a pretty town square, and Puerto Vallarta's most famous landmark, the Cathedral Our Lady of Guadalupe, 'El Centro' has a unique charm and character of its own. A mile-long boardwalk known as the 'Malecon' runs along the downtown oceanfront street, Paseo Diaz Ordas, where you will find shops, restaurants, galleries, specialty stores and traditional marketplaces facing the ocean.

This boutique beach front Mexican style building offers a total of eight units. This unit has traditional Mexican finishes and offer Mountain and beach front views. Puerta al Mar also offers elevator service, swimming pool, jacuzzi, outdoor bar, direct beach access, covered parking with attendant, and 24 hour security.

Other Activities: Paradise may be considered a state of mind, but when visiting Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, one definitely experiences a real life paradise.

Golf: Marina Vallarta Golf Club Located in Marina Vallarta, 3.6 miles, since most of the fairways are lined with palm trees and guarded by water, a premium is placed on accuracy.

Flamingos Golf Club Located in Nuevo Vallarta, this traditional-style course enjoys the reputation of being the easiest to play because of its wide-open fairways. Phone:

Punta Mita Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Located 40 minutes to the north, there are two 18-hole courses. Pacífico eight picturesque holes bordering the ocean. Hole #3b, called the “Tail of the Whale,” is a 194-yard, par 3 that plays across the ocean to a rocky island green. Bahía has seven oceanfront holes and is a little more challenging than

Mayan Palace Golf Club Located in Nuevo Vallarta, this is a fun course, though bunkers and water hazards are everywhere. The #14 signature hole is a beautiful 166-yard, par 3 with the ocean on the left and a lake on the right.

El Tigre Golf Club Located in Nuevo Vallarta, this is a lengthy course protected by traps and water throughout. The mammoth finishing hole is the par 5, 621-yard “Tiger.” Most golfers find it untamable because water runs all the way down the left side and the multi-tiered green is surrounded by sand.

Vista Vallarta This is actually two spectacular golf courses at one location, 5.2 miles, just 10 minutes east of the airport. The Nicklaus course has garnered worldwide recognition since hosting the 2002 EMC World Cup Championship.
