Zona Romantica (Also Called Old Town)
By Boardwalk Realty
While still preserving its wonderful small town charm and appeal Puerto Vallarta Zona Romantica Romantic Zone possesses the sophistication and amenities of a world class international travel destination. This is where you will find the widest choice of restaurants and everything from delicious Mexican tacos to fine dining, and all just a stone’s throw away… Vallarta is well known for seafood dishes, particularly shrimp, lobster, and red snapper, as well as authentic delicious Mexican dishes like Mole, Chiles en Nogada and Chiles Rellenos Ahogados. The south side choice is endless, from lively, stylish cocktail lounges with dinner and cabaret floor shows, to enchanting candlelit beachfront restaurants where you can enjoy a romantic dinner accompanied by the soothing sound of the waves lapping at the shore.
And the nightlife can be pretty spectacular too this side of town with a good selection of bars, clubs and entertainment venues. With something for all tastes and lifestyles most nightclubs tend to open later and get going closer to midnight or even later. The bars tend to get going a little earlier, usually around 10.30 p.m. onwards. Plus there is a good choice of Martini lounges with performing artists, piano and jazz bars with resident musicians and singers plus a number of smaller, cantina style bars. Salsa dance clubs, live blues bands, Mariachi music, Zona Romantica’s nightlife choice is wide. Smart Mexican men and women tend to dress up more when going out so you may want to bring something to wear for the nightlife.
