Puerto Vallarta’s Romantic Zone also know as Old Town or South Side.
Between downtown Puerto Vallarta on the north side and the South zone on the S side, between the Cuale River Island and Conchas Chinas you have what is now known as the Romantic Zone or Old Vallarta.
This area developed in the 1960’s and 1970’s when tourism started to become the town’s main income and a stable concrete bridge was built over the Cuale River.
There’s lots to do, shops, restaurants, bars, and much more. Hotels are smaller, less than a handful offer all-inclusive, because it doesn’t really make sense when the lively town offers everything just walking out of the hotel lobby.
