Old Vallarta is beautiful,So many shops to see. Walk around every where up the hills and down. Beautiful people to talk to stop and have lunch or dinner and a few drinks. People are very friendly also the shopping for trinkets is alot of fun.

Enjoyed touring Old Vallarta! This is the artsy part of town, where you can find great jewelry, arts and food. Loved the location by the water and inland.

Lovely old town struggling to maintain it's charm amidst the constant expansion of the city. You really get the feeling of Mexico just by wandering around the cobblestone town.

Be sure to venture off the main roads where instead of being confronted by time share salespeople, you will be treated to beautiful old architecture and stonework/brickwork by amazingly talented artisans! As an aside, we felt very safe walking around these areas.

If you're looking for a place to walk and have a great time, go to Old Vallarta, find the Cuale Island, the Flea market, try some local cuisine like tacos, pozole and enchiladas, be careful with the chile!

If you only have a short time in the city, try to include a walking tour of Old Vallarta. The history, culture, and even the scandals are fascinating.

Coming in for a day from a cruise. What would be recommended to do in a day to get an overall good sense? Are their areas accessible just off the ship? I'd like to see Old Town. Best way to get there? TIA.
