Where to stay in Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta is divided into five zones, each offering a different experience. Choose the zone that best suits you for your accommodation. The North Zone includes Nuevo Vallarta, a tourist destination, and the upmarket Marina Vallarta with its many resorts and golf courses. The Hotel Zone can be found around the harbour, while all the action is in downtown Puerto Vallarta. The charmingly named Romantic Zone, south of downtown Puerto Vallarta, is so-called because of its historical, colonial charm complete with cobbled streets and beautiful architecture. Finally, the South Zone is known for its resorts, big beaches and calm surf. Accommodation options in the city range from 5-star hotels and all-inclusive resorts on private beaches to laid-back bungalows.

  • The Romantic Zone

    Hotel Playa Los Arcos is an all-inclusive resort that ticks all the boxes if you want to level up on luxury, with the beach on your doorstep. In the heart of the Romantic Zone, you’ll be within walking distance of the action at the Malecón boardwalk. You can also take advantage of typical resort amenities, such as an infinity pool, oceanfront dining options and a pool bar. If you’d prefer something slightly more laid-back during your stay in Puerto, spend a few nights at Estancia San Carlos. This comfy three-star bungalow offers free WiFi, a sun deck and a pool for the kiddies (there’s an adult version, too!). Aside from being budget-friendly, it boasts an excellent location in the Romantic Zone, just two blocks from the Malecón boardwalk. 

  • The North Zone

    Offering stunning ocean views, the Marriott Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa in Marina Vallarta also has all the mod cons to elevate your stay, including luxury rooms and suites, six restaurants, a fitness centre, a spa and an infinity pool.
