Things to do, Places to See in the Romantic Zone

In Puerto Vallarta, the area south of the Cuale River and west of Insurgentes Street down to the sea is currently known as the Romantic Zone.

It is a central area of Puerto Vallarta that strives to maintain an identity of its own, that encompasses a lot of attractions for visitor to enjoy and that makes an important part of the destination’s history.

Olas Altas, Los Muertos Beach, Pilitas and Conchas Chinas are landmarks in the city’s tourism and are part of the traditional Puerto Vallarta that we keep so dear.

Here’s a list of some of the most important attractions in the Romantic Zone

1. Mozayko Mural. The work of artists Natasha Moraga y Daniel Moragan, this mosaic mural is located on Pino Suarez Street. It was completed in 2013 and ever since it has become a must, a great photo opportunity for visitors.
