If you are a more sophisticated traveler or considering Puerto Vallarta for a second home or a retirement destination, you will likely be interested in what international tourists call the romantic zone of Puerto Vallarta.
The romantic area is the charming authentic area of Puerto Vallarta. Even if you are just here as a tourist to drink and have fun, you should spend at least a day in the romantic area of Puerto Vallarta, so you will understand what Mexico is really about. If I am right, I think you’ll want to spend your entire time in the romantic zone of Puerto Vallarta.

Malecon (Waterfront Walk): It is a beautiful walk along Puerto Vallarta’s Malecon. If you love bronze sculptures, make sure to watch my below video of the below Free Puerto Vallarta Waterfront Sculpture Tour (link below). The sculpture tour explains who each artist is and what each particular sculpture means, from my perspective. You can also just enjoy the walk without knowing the background on these sculptures. Begin Escultura Los Milenios and head south until you see the dancing dolphins sculpture. Then head away from the beach towards the church steeple.

Plaza de Armas: This is the main square in the Romantic Zone of Puerto Vallarta. Both the Pacific Ocean and the crowned tower of Our Lady Of Guadalupe Church is visible from this plaza. Plus there is a beautiful Gazebo in the center you will need to take a selfie with to prove you were in Puerto Vallarta. Like all towns in former Spanish colonies, you need to visit the main square and Church.
Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish (Church): This Church was over 50 years in the making when it was finally completed in 1952. But its famous crown was not added until 15 years later in 1965. Because it took so long to build the construction was influenced by many schools of architecture, such as neoclassical, baroque, and renaissance. The cultural heart of Puerto Vallarta centers around this church and it serves as ground zero for the “Our Lady of Guadalupe Festival,” December 1-12th each year, which is attended by thousands of people.
Casa Kimberley: Casa Kimberly in Gringo Gulch became famous when American film stars Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor had an extra marital affair during the filming of Night of the Iguana.

Gringo Gulch: This is the area that many American writers and artists lived to escape from the conservative McCarthyism era in 1950s US politics. Make sure to cross the Gringo Gulch Bridge and look at the beautiful homes along the river. Gringo Gulch is also where Casa Kimberley is located which became famous when American film stars Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor lived together during the filming of Night of the Iguana.
Cuale River Island: This is just a charming little tree-shaded island that you have to see that also happens to have a flea market if you need to buy souvenirs to take home with you. Make sure to walk all the way east (away from the ocean) to get deep into Gringo Gulch, and then walk all the way west back to the Pacific Ocean.
