Where to stay in Puerto Vallarta

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.

  • The Hotel Zone

    If you enjoy doing the self-catering thing, Mako 54 is for you! Situated 700m from Camarones Beach, these stylish, modern apartments have fully equipped kitchens and balconies. There’s a covered rooftop pool on site and only six suites, ensuring a peaceful, private stay.

  • Downtown

    How about a traditional boutique hotel with fun, colourful Mexican décor? Casa Colibrí Malecón (Hummingbird House Malecón) is perfectly situated just 300m from the city centre. Choose from studios, rooms or suites. There’s a shared kitchen on site, a rooftop terrace, free WiFi and friendly staff to welcome you. Recommended for women solo travellers!

  • The South Zone

    Picture an opulent Mexican homestead set against a mountain with the jungle all around and the beach a short walk away. Hacienda Maria Elena’s prime location is just the start. Offering six luxury rooms in the main house, you could also opt to live large and hire the adjacent, private, five-bedroom villa that comes with a chef service!
